In a bid to help fight against the new coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), Microsoft-owned professional networking platform LinkedIn on Thursday said that it is offering free job postings, promoting urgent jobs and hiring resources to companies from industries in critical need.

LinkedIn is offering companies and organisations in healthcare (including medical device, medical practice and mental health care), supermarket, warehousing and freight delivery, as well as disaster relief non-profit organisations the ability to post jobs for free on the platform — from April 1 to June to 30 � and hire people needed to fill these mission-critical roles.


“We are hearing heroic stories of how those on the frontlines are working around the clock to protect the public. It’s clear, however, that more help is needed to fill the most urgent open roles,” Ruchee Anand, Director of Talent and Learning Solutions, India at LinkedIn said in a statement.

“That is why we are bolstering our efforts to help accelerate the hiring of people with relevant skills that are most needed in India right now,” Anand added. According to the professional networking platform, the company is helping job seekers with the right skills to quickly find open roles by promoting them on our Jobs page.

For instance, frontline healthcare roles, such as doctors and nurses, will be automatically added to a list of �urgent’ jobs, which will be surfaced to LinkedIn members with relevant skills.

LinkedIn members that have relevant skills that fit these open roles will receive automatic real-time alerts and emails that inform them so that they can apply immediately. The company has also heard from its healthcare staffing customers that they need help hiring for critical healthcare roles.

They have expanded its ‘Recruiting For Good’ programme to deploy its own team of recruiters to help source and screen talent for organisations on the front lines so that these organisations can fill urgent paid and volunteer positions. (IANS)

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.

With the advent of technology, privacy and age-related limitations have been done away with. Almost anything is available on the internet in abundance. For those sites where a paywall or a subscription is required, it takes just a few clicks to find loopholes in the workings of the dark web, to manipulate the settings, and to become a full-time user. Similarly, digitisation of almost every industry has allowed access to worlds previously not openly accessible to just anyone. The partakers of this new world, not surprisingly, are children and youth, armed with curiosity and the impeccable ability to navigate the online world with ease.

Unconventional career choices might be challenging at first, however, the benefits associated with these are promising. Today's job opportunities are the ones that didn't exist a few years ago. Similarly, the pace of technological evolution would continue to generate millions of new jobs in the future that we can't think of today. Equipping oneself with relevant, unique, evolving, and out-of-the-box skills, is thus, an important aspect for young graduates aiming to start their own business or land a secure job. As parents, education institutions, and the government are now motivating the youngsters to walk an extra mile, think of new ideas, and explore new career routes, students have gathered the confidence and courage to pursue their interests.
