‘UMEED’ Job Fair – an Annual Event was held in the SBS Campus on 23rd June 2018. Umeed Job Fair offers a platform for job seekers and industry looking for candidates to manage and grow their business. It’s an endeavour of SBS to provide employment opportunity to the graduate and postgraduate students of Punjab. This year various manufacturing and service sector organisations such as Walmart, Vacancy India, Indiabulls Venture, Religare, New Era Machine, Tech Auto India, Oster Group, National Press Associations, DBC Trust, Nano Chemical Brothers, JV Exports, USBCO Steels, Vayutel, Aditya Birla Capital, NGO and Charitable Organisations, etc. participated in the Job Fair. Students from various colleges and institutes in and around Ludhiana were interviewed and around 50 were short listed for final selection. In addition, some candidates were short listed for posts such as HR Manager, Marketing Executives, Finance Executives, Management Trainee, etc. The manufacturing companies were a little disheartened as not many Engineering students turned up for the Job Fair. These companies were unable to fill the vacancy for Trainee Engineers. Also some of the companies pointed about the high expectations of candidates and a total mismatch between their skill/knowledge displayed during the selection process. It is one of the objective of SBS to bridge this gap and Umeed is one small step in this direction. Dr. Ghazala Qadri, Chairperson of SBS informed that for this Job Fair more than 30 colleges were contacted and individual messages, phone calls and emails were made to a number of job seeking candidates informing them about the job opportunities. The student and the faculty of the institute managed the Job Fair.
