Karnataka Govt’s New App Will Help School Dropouts & Unemployed Youth Find Jobs

Karnataka Govt’s New App Will Help School Dropouts & Unemployed Youth Find Jobs

These tech-driven platforms are valuable resources for the state government, which is planning to create five lakh job opportunities in the current financial year.

In a bid to help thousands of unemployed men and women across Karnataka, the state government has launched an online portal and app that aims to provide skill development resources and employment opportunities.

Kaushalkar, a website and app, is presently available as part of a special drive organised by the state government between May 15 and May 22.

At the ongoing event, participants can register for a skill development and entrepreneurial training programme. Selected candidates will be provided free training as well as counselling and guidance, reports India Times. The chief minister said, “We will ensure that people get market-oriented skills, especially those required in the industrial and manufacturing sectors…The state is planning to create five lakh jobs in the current financial year.”

The app and the portal are both available in Kannada for local users to understand and access the technology more easily. The programme is specifically geared towards training either those who are illiterate or those who dropped out of school before completing their formal education. Those between the ages of 18 and 35 are eligible to apply.

The app, currently available for Android devices only, can be downloaded here while desktop users can head to the website
