Guwahati: Assam down town University (AdtU), Guwahati is all set to organise the 7th AdtU Job Fair on December 10 at the university campus for the students across India.

The event will witness 3,000 job seekers who stand to get recruited by 50 reputed organisations, including Adani Group, Reliance Jio Infocomm, Dabur, Byjus, Britannia Ltd etc. under one roof.

The Job Fair is aimed at candidates having 0-3 years of experience. It will cater to the students from various verticals such as Management, Social Sciences, Pharmacy, Engineering, Nursing, Paramedical and Sciences.

A day after the Job Fair, AdtU’s placement cell is also conducting the biggest national-level HR conclave in the northeast on December 11 to bring together the best minds in talent sourcing and recruitment in India. HR Conclave will have insightful sessions regarding campus hiring post-Covid-19, technology and its impact on recruiting, and the digitisation of campus recruitment. It will have a conglomeration of industry experts as guest speakers of various sessions followed by the conferences on Strategic and Sourcing Lab. There will also be a dedicated time for networking and interaction among experts from different aspects of the industry.

“We have observed that job search seems like a near-impossible task during the unprecedented times of the coronavirus pandemic. The shift to remote working, e-commerce and automation has also led to more than 25 per cent of workers needing to switch occupations due to the lack of the required skills. But, now, as the economy is gradually opening up with many companies starting hiring, the job scenario is also going through a transition. Therefore, job fairs like these are fantastic opportunities for job seekers to connect with companies and comprehend their requirements. It will also help job seekers to streamline their search and provide them with a convenient way to learn about hiring businesses and apply for relevant positions.” said Dr NC Talukdar, Vice-Chancellor, Assam down town University.

“Similarly, the HR conclave will allow us to build upon these industry connections every year and make the network stronger. The ultimate goal of such conclaves is to get students industry and market-ready,” added Dr Talukdar. 

The Mega Job Fair at AdtU is also a win-win situation for the companies, which can get quick access to several candidates and complete their recruitment processes in one place. They don’t have to ponder over the arrangements as all these are taken care of by the university. The companies are also getting promoted across the state as all the event branding has their logos.

The HR Conclave will see prominent names such as Saumar Choudhury, Regional Senior HR Manager – AirAsia, Renee P Kashyap, HR Manager – Britannia Industries Ltd, Pubali Borthakur, Director, People & Talent Operations, Zaloni, Anil Kapur, President, Topcem, Dr Nikhil Agarwal, CEO – IIT Kanpur (FIRST, AIIDE and C3i Hub), Dr Ashoke Kr.
