Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

Employment Glass : Half Empty or Half Full ?

For IT / Engineering / Technology Graduates , is the employment glass , half empty or half full ?
For those graduates who keep looking at the following statistics , it would certainly appear , half empty :
 2012 batch of IT/Computer Science graduates…………….. 1,15,711
 2012 batch of Engg / Technology graduates ………………….3,56,570
 Employee Addition in 2012-13 , by
• Software Companies ……………………………………………………( – ) 28 %
• Outsourcing Companies ………………………………………………( – ) 13 %
But for those graduates with “ never-say-die “ attitude , the glass is half FULL !
Using RESUME BLASTER App ( free download from Google Play ) , they are proactively / aggressively , emailing their resumes ( and absolutely FREE ) to 60, 676 Companies / Employers , belonging to following industries , in 665 cities / towns ( including their own ! ):
 Consultancy / Services ……………………. 35 , 987
 IT Software ………………………………………. 18, 023
 ITes ………………………………………………….. 3, 192
 IT Hardware ………………………………………. 1, 888
 Dotcom / Internet …………………………….. 1, 586
They have realized that
 no recruiter has time to search / find their resumes from amongst millions lying in job-portal databases
 Luck does not “ arrive “ at your door-step. You must go grab it !
Who says the glass is empty ?

With regards

Jobs for All = Peace on Earth ?

Difficult to prove thru experiment on a global scale
But suppose , either Congress or BJP were to adopt following ONE – LINE manifesto for the forthcoming National Election in 2014 :
“ If you vote us to power , we promise jobs for 80 million unemployed graduates during 2015 – 2020 “
No other promises of Lok-Ayukta , Electoral Reforms , Equal Representation for Women , Independence of CBI , etc etc
No nothing . Just one line !
Will that get them absolute majority ( 2 / 3rd ) in the Parliament ?
Just ask any Jobless Graduate
And here is a simple experiment to prove this
Let the winner Congress Party start distributing in Karnataka , free Smart phones / Tablets / Laptops etc , to all unemployed , duly pre-loaded with RESUME BLASTER App ( Google Play )
All doubts will disappear !
If this promise has brought regional parties to power in UP / Punjab / TamilNadu / Assam / Rajasthan etc , then it is bound to work at the Center !
Gujarat , with the least unemployment rate of just 1 % has brought BJP to power for the third consecutive term !
