Hence, in keeping this in mind, with the demand of jobs by NET or Ph.D qualifiers the UGC (University Grants Commission) has launched a dedicated academic job portal enabling candidates to register and credit their profile online.
What portal offers? This portal facilitates the employers to search and browse academic profile of candidates available on it and register and post the job vacancies on this portal so that candidates can apply against the vacancies. "This portal is going to serve the two constituencies namely the job seekers and employers. While it will help students create their academic profile and bring them to the notice of the universities, college and other potential employers, it will also enable the employers to post their job vacancies for talent hunt", said UGC acting chairman Ved Prakash.
An official from UGC said, "The HRD Ministry had also strongly advocated for such a website taking in view of the aspirations of the prospective candidates and higher education institutes for an academic job site."
Ved Prakash also asked them to popularize the initiative, he requested the universities to consider uploading of job advertising of their universities for academic positions. The portal further, provides browsing, searching, filtering of academic profiles created by qualified candidates on a number of parameters. Including the universities and other institutes as employers, they can also verify the NET qualified candidates through the same interface.
