Bengaluru: The COVID19 pandemic has created joblessness on an unprecedented scale, both in India and abroad. According to officials in the department, going by the number of people registered on Seva Sindu, about 1.50 lakh people were back in Karnataka and required jobs. The Karnataka Government has stepped in to help out those in search of a job. 

Those in search of a job can register with the Karnataka Skill Development Corporation on the portal, by keying in basic details. Once the registration is done, the department concerned will reach out to the candidate.

Deputy Chief Minister Ashwath Narayan, who is also in charge of skill development said that the portal was recently launched to help skilled workforce from all sectors ranging from engineers and nurses to masons.

“On one hand, several people from our state who had gone abroad or to other states in search of employment have now come back owing to the crisis brought about by the pandemic. On the other hand, the skilled migrant workforce in our state, have now gone back to their natives. Hence there is a huge requirement for jobs. For instance, there is a huge demand for a skilled workforce in the construction industry. This is but one example. We hope to fill this employment gap through this portal,” he explained.

The government is also trying to connect job creators with job seekers. It is building a database of available jobs across different sectors. “We will launch another portal soon with information about jobs available. We are coordinating with industry representatives in this regard,” Ashwath Narayan added.
