The biggest problem our country and society is facing is the large amount of unemployment. India has over 5 crores educated unemployed youth. Every year more than 50 lacs educated youth gets added into the list. Educated youth is frustrated, dejected and lost hope as even professionally qualified youth who have engineering, management, graduate degrees also are not getting job. The situation is go grim that highly educated people are taking up odd jobs.
On the other hand, companies always have the complaint that they are not getting “right talent”. They have vacancies but not able to hire. When there are crores of educated youth are available, why companies are not able to hire? Where is the gap? Companies have resources to hire talent. But, crores of youth need help to find employment.
The biggest gap is that job seekers search job based on what they need rather than what companies want. The recent book released by India’s top publisher Penguin India “Job Search Secrets – Master the art of getting the job” has come at the right time. The book is written by two human resource experts, Subir Verma and Sagarika Sahu Verma. Subir Verma works as Chief Human Resource at Tata Power DDL and Sagarika is a CEO of an edutech company.
“I feel the pain when I read in newspaper that for one vacancy for the post of peon, thousands of people including highly educated who have completed MBA, Engineers and even PhD have applying”. Then we thought to find a way to help such youth to make them know everything related to how they can find job. This book is an effort to help these educated unemployed youth”, says Subir Verma.
This book is an effort to bring all aspect of job search at one place with various supporting tools to provide complete theory and practice to all to master the art of searching a job. There are many free tools shared in the book which can be used for practice which can give result in shortest possible time.
“Not only what one needs to do, but how to do it, sample script, how to practice and implement are what has been shared in details in very simple and easy to understand language”, say Dr Sagarika Sahu Verma. Job seekers have qualification, skill but they are not to effectively use them during their job search and interview.
The book covers practical approach of job search which every job aspirants should know with the sole aim of getting the job faster. Starting from how to choose a right career, how to find hidden job, how to find people who can help in finding job and build long-time relationship with them, what to do to crack campus, virtual and other interviews, salary negotiation, using social media to find job and many such tips. Each chapter has practical tips with examples of real students and job aspirants for each one to relate and use. For each of the area, free tools, exercise have been recommended which anyone can use without any cost seating at home.
There is a general perception that you need to relocate to bigger cities then only you can get job. There are so many single child or girl child cannot relocate due to various reasons. What will they do? The book has answer to many such issues faced by candidates and offer solutions. For example, use of social media and job portal to find job and also use then in such way that job as per your choice will come to you every day. This not only saves time but is convenient for all” say Dr Sagarika.
Not all job are advertised. In fact, more than 50% jobs are not advertised by companies and they recruit thought other channels. Now, students or job seekers are missing half of the available job if they do not know how to reach them.
The book has received excellent respond from not only students, job seekers and working professionals but also industry senior professionals. “Job searching can feel like an overwhelming and daunting task. Job descriptions have vague language and hidden meanings, and job sites feel like an endless amount of pages of jobs you didn’t know existed.
