The Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council (K-DISC) under the state government has prepared a ‘Digital workforce management system Kerala’ which connects job seekers in Kerala with employers based all over the world. The system enables educated youths in the state to engage in digital work from the comfort of their homes. It was the new Kerala Digital University that created the website of the system.
Explaining the functioning of the system, Finance Minister of Kerala T M Thomas Isaac said in a Facebook post that an international job portal having over five crore members had expressed interest in partnering with it. “The portal, which has a presence in around 240 countries, will help the candidates in Kerala connect with several top companies in the world,” said Isaac.
Over 3,500 people in the state have already completed their registration on the new system. All candidates who register will be given training in skill development. Already, 32 people who registered have received placements in areas such as robotic process automation, software testing and data science, said the Minister.
Moreover, a major multinational firm operating in India has announced the hiring of over one thousand people. Unfortunately, the requirements of the company do not match the profile of the candidates who have registered with the ‘Digital workforce management system’, said Isaac.
Youths with the necessary qualifications can register on the portal. They can log in on the link https://knowledgemission.kerala.gov.in/ and register with their e-mail ID. On receiving an OTP, they can authorize the registration and upload their bio-data.
