According to the company, it is an irony that today on the one hand, millions of students pass out of colleges but many remain unemployed. On the other hand there are 8 million SMBs in India who continue to search for the right employee.
To address this gap, Tally has launched a facility ‘Students subscription’ which will provide Tally students a facility which will link them directly to the prospective employer. Every subscriber will have the facility to upload their resume enabling large scale visibility for the first time to reach across to more than 2 million Tally users.
According to Avinash Gupta, president, Tally Solutions: “Students subscription is an interface between industry and applicants. The student can assess his skills, learn, take mock tests as well as apply for jobs under one banner. This initiative will provide seamless availability of the right talent to the right employer as well as enable a better employment opportunity for qualified candidates.”
“It has been a struggle for SMBs to connect with potential employees, assess and select them. By establishing connection between employers and students, Tally has taken a big step in addressing the industry requirement,” a statement from the company said.
Gupta added, “We at Tally understand the need of this industry and hence decided to address it and catalyse the process of employment and selection, benefiting both the student and the employer. In times to come this will enable millions of youth to get the right direction towards relevant learning, career mapping and the right job.”
The statement futher noted that millions of youth across the country will be benefited by the ‘student’ subscription by having access to better job opportunities. “Major beneficiaries will be students from small towns who don’t have access to current knowledge, industry trends or employers. Today through this facility they become more employable,” Tally said.
