Hi Brijendra......I wish I can help your son.I find the way you try help him so sweet but almost at all countries the young people face same problem.Many years of studies , a lot of money to pay and at the end so hard to find a job.The most young people start working at works far away from the object of them study with the hope at the future they will find something better. Anyway I wish the best for your son....

Of course I am delayed to respond you. My son has got the job in a software company located in Delhi two months back. He is working as SAP consultant. Right now he is undergoing Training there for a period of six months with nominal stipend and latter on he will be absorbed there . Regards.

I think it is much more difficult now to find a job after a college education than it used to be. It seems to me that companies are looking more for people with previous work experience in that field so they do not have to train them. A college education used to go a long way years ago but things seemed to have changed quite a bit. Plus there are a lot of college graduates out there looking for jobs and probably the same jobs.

Hi, I agree with you that most of the employers looks for the experienced person rather than fresh one as there will be no cost on training.Thanks for your response dear.

The situation is almost same everywhere. If someone fails to manage campus, he/she is to face difficulties in finding jobs. I usually recommend the following: 1)Go to some other states for searching jobs. Works fine in most of the cases. 2)Taking admission in a Management Program and continue higher studies. Probably, the best alternative. 3)Looking for part time jobs (Faculty, may be) in his/her institution. Hope this helps.

I am satisfied with your view, but it is difficult not impossible. The major cause of unemployed of your son is he is weak in communication. His communication skills are not suffcient for good job. So, first increase your son's communication skills by suitable methods. From my point of view,the best method for improving the communication skill is that when you communicate with your son, use english language for communication and inspire your son for speaking in english. This will work. Because you have knowledge and can't explain (as in presentation) to others, it is not of use. But, if you have some less knowledge and ability to explian, it is very effective for students searching for jobs.

I am satisfied with your view but, it is difficult but not impossible. My suggestion is that, increasing your son's communicational skills by suitable methods. Because if you have full knowledge of anything and you can't explain to others ( in like presentation then, yours all knowledege goes in vain and if you some less knowledge and you have skill to explains to others it is very effective. Besacuse maximum companies needs a good communication skiller. From my point of view, the best method of increasing communication skill is "When you coummunicate with your son plz, communicate in english and inspire him to communicate in english. If your son have good communication skill then he will defintely finds a good job.

What is actually consider a right job? Many people after graduating grab the first job offer, which may or may not be in the same discipline of study. To land on a job, there are many factors. If your son can get to attend interviews and tests, it shows that his resume is fine. At least he got short listed. In my opinion, it might be assumed he did not make it after taking the tests or attending the first interview. Perhaps he can evaluate for himself what happen at the interviews. Could it be that he is not suitable for the job, or that he did not meet the requirements, or that he could be overly qualified. In some interviews, tests are conducted for attitude, ability to work with teams or independently etc. Anyone who attends a interview has a rough idea of his chance of being selected, and how he fares at the interview.

Why would you send his resume to us? Finding the right job takes time- You have to be sure to get out there- Feet on pavement- try a employment agency- I mean have him try one- He is an adult now- Look online- try monster.com- employment agencies really help- for a small fee they help with the resume- mailing out letters with resume and finding a job- Good luck to your son- Don’t get frustrated- let this be a good experience for him!

The sad thing is that working will make him more valuable to another company. They don't seem to want someone idle they need to steal them from someone. I have gotten a few good result from CareerBuilder and Monster.com Many companies will hire from the net. Good luck in this. Get him a job doing almost anything and then he probably will be able to move into the chosen job or at least the company and eventually move into his chosen job. Good luck with this.
