It should be mentioned that getting a job also involves gambling. Typically, candidates have a chance of being hired at a ratio of 240:1 considering several filters set by recruiters. Although the odds don’t seem to be in the candidate’s favor, the chances of success skyrocket when you become truly work-ready, said Subhashis Modak, head of learning and development at Udaan Aviation Academy.

Employment has been a primary measure of success for every young adult. A significant portion of India’s workforce is either unemployed (unemployed) or underemployed (employment well below its true potential). Honestly, there is very little to complain about the national economy and government for the ordeal. Instead, it’s time to address it. And get your dream job without having to look for references from mamas and chachas, added Mr. Nikhil Poojary, co-founder and COO of Udaan Aviation Academy.

The initiative also works with school children and explores various career opportunities beyond the normal such as aviation, logistics, etc. On the other hand, JCI Buddhapurnima Hyderabad, a unit of JCI global non-profit organization is working to implement this initiative. as a launching pad to uplift anyone whose career has been impacted by the pandemic.
