CHANDIGARH:The government of Haryana has taken many initiatives to increase employment opportunities in the State. The government has set a target of organizing 200 job fairs every year to provide employment opportunities to the youth in the private sector.
Under this, it is mandatory to organize at least one employment fair or placement drive every quarter by the District Employment Office in every district of the state.
It is stated by the deputy chief minister, Dushyant Chautala.

 He further said that a new employment portal has been launched to connect the youth of Haryana with employment in the private sector. The details of youth of Haryana have been compiled on the employment portal by collecting data from various
governmentdepartments, ITIs, polytechnics, and higher educational institutions to meet the
needs of youth with diverse skills in the private sector.

Not only this, private sector employers and job-aggregators have also been integrated on the employment portal. He said that a 35 seater call centre has been set up by the Employment Department to promote the details of the applicants on the employment portal and to connect these applicants with employment opportunities in the private sector.

the actual job fair this time, due to which the online job fair module has been operated by
the Employment Department on the departmental portal.
