Central online assessment working wonders for computer trainees
Kolkata: The initiative of the state Youth Services and Sports department in making youths go through central online assessment after pursuing computer training, has ensured help to the trainees in getting jobs in IT and ITeS sectors.
There are more than 1,000 computer training centres under the state Youth Services and Sports department, where around 1.30 lakh job aspirants undergo different courses of computer training.
It was around one and a half years ago, when the department had decided to introduce the central online assessment. It helps the trainees get a firsthand experience of appearing for an online examination and they are also provided with necessary training on how to appear for the examination during their course.
Since at present most work in almost all companies is online based, such experiences make them industry friendly and help them to get through interviews. Youths are easily getting absorbed in companies in various sectors, mainly in IT and ITeS.
The job aspirants are getting well-trained on the online-based computer applications, which is the need of the hour and it is coming up as an added advantage for them as job aspirants in IT and ITeS sectors.
It may be recalled that the training centres were set up to provide opportunity to youths from any part of the state to become computer literate.
Moreover, this comes at the time when IT giants like Infosys and Wipro are investing in the state and more investment in the IT sector is set to take place in near future.
Besides creating an atmosphere for more investment in the IT and ITeS sectors in the state, the state government has also given stress on creating necessary infrastructure to generate industry friendly job aspirants.
So, more such computer training centres were opened in the past six years, including some in Darjeeling district as well.
