AICTE and Apna.co Launch New Career Portal for Engineering Students

AICTE and Apna.co

The AICTE, along with Apna.co, a professional networking platform, introduced the ‘AICTE Career Portal’ for engineering students. This initiative aims to revolutionize the job and internship search process for over 3 million students across 12,000 colleges. The launch event, held at the AICTE headquarters in New Delhi, saw key figures such as AICTE Chairman Prof. TG Sitharam, Vice Chairman Dr. Abhay Jere, Member Secretary Professor Rajive Kumar, and Nimrit Parikh, CEO of apna.co, in attendance.

This collaboration stemmed from a February 2024 agreement, showcasing a mutual commitment to enhancing job prospects through technological innovation and partnership. Notably, the portal includes a unique program offering students a chance to visit Silicon Valley, USA, for free, where they can interact with industry leaders from major companies like Google, Apple, and Microsoft.

Apna.co plays a pivotal role in this project by connecting recent graduates with employment opportunities through its extensive network of 500,000 recruiters and over 1,000 companies. Beyond job listings, the portal offers tools for crafting impressive resumes, receiving real-time job alerts, and fostering professional growth through dedicated groups. Future enhancements will include interview preparation assistance and guidance on fair salary negotiations.

Prof. TG Sitharam underscored the significance of this collaboration, highlighting the fusion of government and startup initiatives in nurturing students’ skills and facilitating diverse job prospects. Nirmit Parikh, CEO of apna.co, emphasized the platform’s contribution to empowering Indian youth on a global scale.

Additionally, the portal equips colleges with tools for informed decision-making, strategic planning, enhanced communication through a networking community, and comprehensive job placement statistics to attract potential employers. This multifaceted approach aims to redefine how both students and employers perceive participating colleges. The AICTE Career Portal is set to officially launch on April 30th.
