Career through Skill Development
Ranjan K Baruah
India is a young Nation with many young people all over the country. Though most of the young people prefer to get a Government job, in reality getting a Government job is very challenging as we have many aspirants instead of vacancies in the Government departments. There are youths who do not get good marks or are ready to study further. Skill development through skill training is one of the areas through which youths can start their own initiatives or get placed in different industries or other places according to their skill.
