VADALUR: The three-day “employment opportunity camp,” organised at the initiative of Kanimozhi, MP, got off to an impressive start on Friday. A large number of candidates turned out at Vallalar Gurukulam Higher Secondary School, the venue where the camp will go on till November 22.
Earlier, Ms Kanimozhi formally inaugurated the camp. Speaking on the occasion, she said that due to inclement weather the camp had to be postponed thrice.
Yet, with the untiring efforts of Health Minister M.R.K.Panneerselvam and the unstinted support of the participating companies the camp received overwhelming response from over 50,000 candidates who had already registered their names.
For the purpose of registration the forms were collected from 16 places to ensure that candidates from all parts of Cuddalore district got the chance to attend the camp. The candidates were divided into three groups — degree-holders, diploma/certificate holders and those who had studied up to Plus Two level — for whom the recruitment was held separately.
She said Friday’s session was meant for the graduates, including those holding professional degrees.
Ms. Kanimozhi stressed the point that certain leading companies might have subsidiaries that would provide ample growth prospects to the prospective candidates. Therefore, the candidates should attend the interviews with self-confidence and positive attitude, and promptly answer the questions.
It was apt that an opportunity was being created for the educated to get jobs to commemorate the 86th birthday of Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi.
School Education Minister Thangam Thennarasu said that thanks to Ms Kanimozhi’s endeavour thousands of youngsters, both men and women, had got the career opportunity. They should utilise it properly to succeed in life, he said.
Mr. Panneerselvam said that the camp had come as a boon to the candidates to get placements.
