The concept of Employer Engagement Program has been receiving greater attention from the corporate world as much as the academic world. Engagement is defined as “the extent to which people enjoy and believe in what they do and feel valued for doing it”. To provide a better platform, Arunodhaya Trust organized an employment engagement program for the STeP beneficiaries on 8th Septeber 2012.
Ms.Kavitha, from Software ECIL PVT Ltd started the program by giving a brief introduction about the foundation. The program was designed to suit the needs of deprived and underprivileged youths who want to get job after the completion of training program. She motivated the students of takings up jobs so that they can earn and contribute for the better and bright future of the family. They were taught about various skills like how to face interview, and building confidence for their overall personality development. Ms.Kavitha gave a presentation on diverse career opportunities available in the market. She engaged the students in various role plays about their ambition in their life and they enjoyed the session all through out the day. Students enthusiastically participated in the program and it turned out to be successful initiative by the organization.
