Employment Exchange Registration: Register with Employment Exchange and get the government job of your dreams.
The Employment Exchange was established by the Government of India under the Employment Exchange (Compulsory Notification of Vacancies) Act, 1959.
This was done to tackle the emerging problem of unemployment and to provide information about the various jobs available to the Indian youth.
Its secondary objective is to provide counseling and training to job seekers all over the country especially the underprivileged community.
In this article, we will go through employment exchanges, its registration process and how it can help you get the government job of your dreams.
What Is Employment Exchange?
The Government of India recruits thousands of candidates through various competitive examinations conducted every year.
However, it does not fill all the vacancies through these exams. A separate publicly funded organization is responsible for providing jobs and mentorship to students of all backgrounds.
This organization has been coined as ‘Employment Exchange‘. It operates at both the state and district level, with each state having its own independent employment portal.
As of 2019, this organization has 947 branches spread across the country. The State Government is solely responsible for the functioning of these Employment Exchanges.
As a part of the employment market information programme, the government collects data about employers, vacancies (all from public sector as well as non-farm private sector companies) and job seekers.
In this way, the government acts as a bridge between the recruiters and the job seekers, thereby facilitating both. Some state governments also distribute unemployment allowance to certain categories of below poverty line. The Exchange organizes the aggregated information based on educational qualifications, skills, experience and individual needs of the candidate or employer.
Whenever a vacancy has to be filled, the government provides its details to all the eligible candidates on the basis of the data submitted by them. Private sector companies can also recruit human resources from the Employment Exchange provided they are required to comply with certain regulations of the exchange.
The National Employment Service (NES), an independent arm of the Ministry of Labor, is entrusted with managing the affairs of the Employment Exchange. The Directorate General of Employment and Training (DGET) periodically evaluates the performance of Employment Exchanges to ensure that national policies, standards and procedures are effectively implemented.
