Now searching for jobs will be easy as the University Grants Commission (UGC) has created ‘Academic Job Portal’ on its official website.
As per a notification, the initiative will help NET/SET/Ph.D. qualified candidates to bring their academic profile to the attention of universities, colleges and other employers with the ultimate aim to get them a suitable job.
Moreover, the portal facilitates candidates to register and create their profile online. “The Academic Job Portal facilitates the employers to search and browse academic profile of candidates available on this portal.
The portal also facilitates employers to register and post the job vacancies on this portal so that candidates can apply against the vacancies,” UGC letter read.
In a letter to the Vice-Chancellors of all universities, the UGC informed that it is in the process of upgrading the job portal with the inclusion of Non-Teaching vacancies and also adding some new features.
The upgraded portal shall become functional shortly.
“You are requested to kindly upload their job vacancies on this portal which will help in this emanating the information to the eligible candidates,” UGC letter read.
In another development, the UGC has also asked Universities to upload the best practices adopted by respective institutes on the 'University Activity Monitoring Portal (UAMP)'. This will motivate and inspire other universities to achieve new and high standards of education and research.
It is pertinent to mention here that during the COVID-I9 pandemic, a number of universities had come up with trend setting practices in the management of teaching learning methods and conduct of examinations.
“However, devising and adopting the best practices is not and should not be dependent upon a particular unpredictable crisis. It should be an evolving and continuing process,” the letter added.
