‘Employment News’, the flagship publication of the Publications Division, has gone online. The website, www.employmentnews.gov.in, was launched by S K Arora, Secretary, Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, on Friday.
Speaking on the occasion, Arora said, “With the availability of the online edition of ‘Employment News’, the tech savvy youth of the country would be able to get the latest information on vacancies in government departments and PSUs at the click of a mouse.”
Arora further said that the Ministry was examining whether private sector related employment information could also be included in ‘Employment News’. He complimented the Publications Division for making ‘Employment News’ self-sustaining despite the low pricing.
Arora expressed the hope that the readers of ‘Employment News’ would now be able to interact through the online medium with the publication and receive a faster response to their queries regarding careers and vacancies in various government departments. He also asked the team to make the project a self-sustaining one by generating ad revenues without compromising on the ambience of the site.
The website carries information / advertisements for jobs in Central and State Governments, PSUs, universities, foreign institutions, etc, admission notices for professional courses, examination notices and results of organisations like the UPSC, SSC and other general recruitment bodies and mid-level career promotion opportunities (deputation). In addition to this, there is also an editorial segment containing articles on conventional as well as emerging fields and self-employment opportunities.
The website also has a job alert option, where aspirants can get alerts in their mailbox as soon as a vacancy arises. It also tries to help students to make an informed career choice through sections like Career Queries, Career Links, Career Watch, featured career, etc.
Uma Kant Mishra, Director, Publications Division, in his remarks said that the website of ‘Employment News’ would have a career guidance series through which surfers’ queries regarding various career options would be addressed. “In fulfillment of our commitment towards providing better services by using state-of-the-art technology, efforts would be made to make ‘Employment News’ the single window through which all jobs / career requirements of the youth relating to government jobs of the country will be met,” said Mishra.
The Hindi website of ‘Rozgar Samachar’ will also be launched soon.
