Increasing employability is key at all levelsIt is not uncommon for those who have lost their jobs in the formal IT sector, to work in BPO jobs. It is also not uncommon for ordinary graduates who work in organizations like Swiggy. However, there is a massive exploitation by this organization, as the volumes are down.
Now that for the next 365 days, we need to have a new normal in our lives with the horrible Corona around, we need some sort of a re-skilling of thousands of people in different fields, so that they will become employable. For example, it is not uncommon to find many teachers of private sector schools fumble with the basic minimum of online teaching skills. This is a new normal and only serious retraining will help such teachers retain their jobs. We need a massive push to increase jobs, with the new normal conditions being a part of us.
This is more important at the Government level as well. For example, can we have a situation where the Government partners with private sector organizations to impart skills in cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, bakery skills, and so on? These are sort of life skills and every state's Government should think of such contemporary skills. We need urgent action in this regard.
