As the curtains were drawn, 495 candidates got shortlisted for the next round of interviews at the fair organised by AMP and World Memon Organisation
NANDED – The mega job fair here on Saturday was a huge success with more than 900 candidates trying their luck for the over 2,000 vacancies offered by 25 corporates and recruiters.
The fair was organised by the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) in association with World Memon Organisation (WMO), Nanded City Chapter, Memon Community Trust Nanded (MCTN) and Nanded Youth Memon Committee (NYMC) for the needy youth of the city in Maharashtra state.
As the curtains drew to a close at the fair, 495 candidates got shortlisted for the next round of interviews.
The fair, at Hyder Garden, Degloor Naka, was inaugurated by officials from WMO, MCTN, NYMC, Team AMP and others who were also in attendance.
Inaugurating the fair, Adv. Yameen Thara, City Chairman – WMO Nanded, said: “There is rising unemployment in Nanded. The youth said we have degrees but no jobs in corporates and this led us to think. WMO Mumbai had organised many job fairs with the AMP and we thus decided to try it in Nanded. I am immensely pleased that our initiative with AMP has borne fruit and we hope that this job fair will go a long way in helping the youth of Nanded.”
Mohsin Nathani, President – MCTN said: “It was a big challenge getting the corporates to come to Nanded as job fairs are usually held in metro cities. We took it up and managed to get corporates from other cities like Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad etc. to come here with the help from AMP.”
Adv. Ahmed Memon, Treasurer – MCTN and one of the important persons behind the fair said they were planning a WMO conclave in March where multiple events were planned for the youth. “Since we were planning to do a job fair for quite some time, we decided that this was the right time to organise it. We are pleased that we took the initiative and have been successful with great help from AMP.”
Syed Nashit, Core Member – AMP said: “At AMP, we believe in action more than discussion and endless planning and thus today we have multiple projects for school and college students to the unemployed as well as professionals. We have been empowering needy youths by organising job fairs, job drives and employability training programmes for the last 10 years.”
Shahid Haider, head of the AMP Employment Assistance Cell said: “One of our objectives is to provide job opportunities to the needy youth and help in making them self-sufficient and thus contribute to nation-building. We have already organised more than 70 job fairs and 400 job drives all across India and in the process helped place 35,000+ candidates in various corporates till date.”
