Over 200 people gathered at the Chowdiah Memorial Hall on Saturday for a job fair, titled Spoorthi, aiming to provide an opportunity to graduates and postgraduates with disabilities to find positions in several private companies.

Organised by the Livelihood Resource Centre (LRC), Leonard Cheshire Disability - SARO, Vocation Rehabilitation Centre and Avishkar, all non-governmental organisations, the participants were previously assessed by LRC and even trained in communication and computer skills. “The concept of the skilled job fair evolved after many were organised previously for semi- and manually skilled persons with disabilities,” said Anuradha Patil, Manager, LRC.

Participants were geared towards employment, particularly in the BPO and engineering sectors, from which around 10 companies showed up.
