The NTR Memorial Trust has taken up an awareness programme to train graduates aspiring for jobs in information technology industry.

The two-day software employment assistance programme launched on Saturday was aimed at educating candidates on how to face interviews and emerge successful. The training, involving representatives of the IT industry including Tech Mahindra vice-president A.M. Rao, was aimed at giving necessary tips to aspirants on the possible areas covered in the interview, dress code to be followed and other aspects. According to Trust chairman D. Sitaramaiah, the programme was launched to bridge the gap between college curriculum and industry requirements and ensuring campus to corporate transformation of students. The training was basically aimed at students from rural background without exposure to the industry and enabling them to overcome problems they encounter in facing the interviews. Following the efforts to make the aspirants industry ready, NTR Memorial Trust would also offer placement assistance to them, he said.
