BMTC to operate special services
Bangalore: The countdown is over, and all roads lead to the Trade Centre Bangalore at the Export Promotion Industrial Park in Whitefield Industrial Area for The Hindu Opportunities Job Fair on Saturday and Sunday. Last year, 45,000 candidates lined up for the fair, and a bigger turnout is expected for this year's event.
To help candidates reach the venue, the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) will run special services. The buses will operate from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. between the job fair venue and the Kempe Gowda Bus Station, Shivajinagar Bus Station, K.R. Market and Marathahalli.
The job fair, organised by The Hindu with Cognizant as the event sponsor, is all about matching young or experienced jobseekers with potential employers.
Individuals over 20 years of age, graduates, postgraduates and professionals with two to 10 years' experience can apply by filling up forms to be circulated at the venue.
To register their names, interested candidates can browse the Net for www.thehindu.com or www.tmifirst.com/hf6/index.aspx. Once registered, candidates can look forward to a rewarding experience, featuring short-listing of candidates, tests, interviews and eventual recruitment.
Look out for the big brand companies from the information technology (IT) and IT-enabled services sectors, which will be present in large numbers.
In the case of professionals with less than two years' experience, the participating companies have pre-screened the registered CVs of graduates or postgraduates, including those with engineering degrees. Invitations have been sent to candidates whose profiles match the requirements of companies.
Professionals with two to 10 years' experience can register their names during the event.
They can walk into the job fair along with a printout of the registration confirmation form.
