eWIT launched an initiative in keeping with its commitment to give back to the Community
which is intrinsic in its target for 2018. This program titled "Future Ready" was a 32 hours
bridge programme for the children of the Support Staff of Technopark. As a gesture of "thank
you" for their unfailing support, eWIT provided 2 hour sessions for 11 days on topics like
Communication, Goal setting, Basic MS Office skills, Grooming and Etiquette, Resume building
and Interview Skills. The programme also envisioned mentoring and providing support to
participants to approach companies in Technopark for employment.
In this initiative, eWIT was joined by Faith InfoTech India Pvt Ltd whose Director and CEO, Mr. Saji Joseph inaugurated the event on Oct 22nd, 2018 together with Tina James, President, eWIT Trivandrum Chapter at Cochin Hall, Park Centre. Technopark offered avid support to eWIT in this venture and offered Park Centre premises free of cost for holding the sessions. Expert professionals and trainers from various companies in Technopark took part in this initiative by volunteering their time, providing training and mentoring support to the students in the pilot batch.
After the completion of the training, the candidates are feeling more confident and motivated. Their language, personality, and etiquette has definitely improved and all have become more focused about their future and career ambitions. The resumes of these candidates have been shared with many companies and recruitment process is ongoing. Two of the candidates were chosen as interns by Allianz Technology. This pilot batch will be an inspiring example and eWIT is planning to conduct a similar programme once every six months.
