March 09, 2015 12:00 am | Updated 05:37 am IST - COIMBATORE:

As many as 70 students were given offer letters at the “All Women FLAG” event organised at Park Group of Institutions here on Sunday by Confederation of Indian Industry and EmployabilityBridge.

According to a press release from the organisers, about 700 students from 22 colleges in the southern States participated in the programme and seven companies had 1,000 openings.

The jobs were in technical, management, arts and science disciplines and the companies were in e-learning, KPO, IT and manufacturing sectors. While 70 were given offer letters, a few more are short-listed for the final round of selection.

Emmanuel Justus, chief executive officer of EmployabilityBridge, said the event facilitates placement for students from tier-two and tier-three cities. Each FLAG event registers 12 per cent to 15 per cent employment. This is the 35{+t}{+h}FLAG event.

A representative of the CII said that small and medium-scale enterprises have a vital role in the “Make in India” project and they should make use of the FLAG event to identify the right manpower for their units. Students need awareness on the opportunities available and companies need to know about the talent available in the colleges in the tier-two and tier-three cities. FLAG events service as a bridge, bringing together the employers and the students.

According to Sangeeta Talwar, managing partner with Fly Vision Consulting, family members should support and encourage girls to study and pursue a career. The students should also train themselves to balance between career and family.

Anusha Ravi, CEO of Park Group of Institutions, said that the event was an opportunity for the students to get placement in leading companies in the country.
