A major job mela would be held on the Andhra University campus here on October 29 and 30 under the Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu scheme of the State Government.

As many as 100 companies which required a total number of 10,000 personnel would be attending the job mela, Rector of Andhra University P.V.G.D. Prasada Reddy informed at a press conference here on Tuesday. The job mela is being conducted in association with Andhra University and Millennium Software Solutions.

Many top companies from different sectors like IT, pharma, chemical, insurance, automobile, hospitality, infrastructure, health care, sales and marketing, garments and retail, BPO services and education would recruit eligible candidates. The qualification needed ranges from 10th class, ITI certificate and polytechnic diploma to PG degree. One company was also ready to recruit 200 drivers with heavy vehicle driving licence.


Prof. Prasada Reddy said the companies coming for the job mela wanted communication skills, aptitude and personality skills apart from academic qualification and that they must be willing to learn. To help the candidates who have good academic qualification but might not get selected, the university has asked the companies to give reasons for not preferring them and this would be informed to the candidates. “They may not be able to give details for every individual but a gist of reasons would help the unsuccessful candidates overcome their deficiencies when they face interviews in future”, the Rector said.


Stalls of all the companies and organisations would be erected near the AU Convocation Hall.

Some of the companies would issue appointment letters during the job mela while some others would follow the practice of conducting next part of interviews in their premises.

Within a week after the job mela, the university would be able to get complete list of selected candidates which would be forwarded to the State Government through the District Collector, who is supervising all arrangements for the job mela.

This is the third successive year that AU was conducting major job mela and leading other universities in this regard. It had also organised campus interviews and job melas and going by the past experience around 15,000 candidates were expected to attend the job mela during the weekend and at least 4,000 should get selected on the spot, Prof. Prasada Reddy said.


Registration to attend the job mela is free and can be done online on websites www.aujobfair.com or www.millenniumsoftsol.com and spot registration is arranged at the AU Assembly Hall.

All details of the jobs being offered, qualifications and other requirements, the campus college where the interview would be held, etc. are placed on the website www.aujobfair.com.
