Chennai, 4 April, 2016: FLAG, an initiative by EmployabilityBridge to fulfill the career dream of non-metro students conducted FLAG event today at Chennai Institute of Technology with overwhelming response from students and companies. Top companies from across India attended to fill vacant positions with the job seeking students from across Southern States. Companies screened over 450 students from different colleges and offered job letters to the selected candidates. Few also shortlisted for final round.

TVS, Matrimony.com, Reliance, Congruent, Decathlon, Systech, Aegis, Sodexo, Ticket Goose and Kiron were the companies participated and they were enthused with the response from colleges and students for the FLAG. Handing over the offers to the selected candidates the participated companies said that FLAG model by EmployabilityBridge is a great model to find the right talents from non-metros. It saves time, cost and travelling to number of colleges to find our required manpower. It also communicates that good candidates were spread across and not just in premier institutions.

Commenting on the program Emmanuel Justus, CEO, EmployabilityBridge said that “our platform EmployabilityBridge has so far enabled great job opportunity access to thousands of students from non-metros across southern states. Since 2011 we played pivotal role in fulfilling the career dreams of over 4200 students from tier II & III cities. The total openings we brought to non-metro students was nearly 16,000 and we noticed that the employable ratio across industry is between 30-34% thus breaks the industry perception of 12-15% employable from the campus. Our special FLAG for women and differently challenged have helped many to get into their dream career

Adding more he also said that “our government’s initiatives like Make In India, start-up encouragements and related will pave way for more job opportunities in future. Companies too can’t fish their required talents from premier institutes alone. They need to expand their search base for right talents beyond premier institutions which obviously create more openings for bright students from smaller towns. While this would be the scenario students should also prepare themselves and grab the opportunities. The trend of start-ups coming down to institutes in tier II & III cities for talents is also increasing. Our past FLAGs too witnessed many.”
Ambalavanan, COO, EmployabilityBridge said that “In India 70% of colleges are located in tier II & III cities producing many technically qualified candidates every year. But due to lack of awareness, both among the students on job availabilities and among the companies about these institutions from smaller cities, the good opportunities were missed. But FLAG plays an important role in bridging the gap and empowering the students. EmployabilityBridge plays a pivotal role in the entire job ecosystem by exposing students with opportunities available across multiple industries. Students should also realize that the opportunities were not only available with MNC’s but also with mid size companies, SMEs, startup companies  etc.”
HR heads of the companies participated said that “companies are looking for candidates with technical knowledge and other employable skill-sets. Geography is not a restriction. Corporate prefer going to well established colleges as the probability of getting the right candidates are more. But this should not restrict the opportunities to the right candidates from the tier-2/tier-3 city colleges. We are enthused with the skills demonstrated by the students during the interview. The average engagement period of the candidate from smaller cities with the company is also high.”
