Kamata Pakistan and Technical Education & Vocational Training Authority, TEVTA, signed an agreement which will facilitate job search for blue collared workers.
TEVTA will share data of its vocational and technical trainees with Kamata Pakistan for exploring job opportunities. Kamata Pakistan will link these potential employees to employers, thus offering matchmaking services. The collaboration will open new horizons for the unemployed and new labour market entrants who lack social and formal networks for securing jobs. Apart from working for the placements of TEVTA graduates, Kamata Pakistan will also conduct Soft Skills Training Sessions for these graduates, which will eventually help them to score better jobs and ace interviews.
On signing the contract, Lt Col (R) Hamid Ghani Anjum, General Manager TEVTA declared, ”Blue collared workers comprise a majority of our workforce and are integral to both the economy as well as social welfare of the country. It gives us pleasure to be able to provide some stability to this burgeoning working class in Pakistan”.
Mr. Muhammad Junaid Saleem, CEO Kamata Pakistan expressed similar enthusiasm regarding the project and pledged to “enhance livelihoods and reduce unemployment for Pakistan’s workforce”.
