Craze Of Govt Jobs Among Youths Continues To Soar

The fact that more than 2.19 lakh candidates applied for 853 posts recently advertised by the Uttarakhand subordinate service selection commission not only highlights the scale of unemployment but also proves that government’s efforts to promote self employment opportunities has yet to catch the fancy of the youth.

The huge response to USSSC advertisement shows that the youngsters still prefer security a government jobs offer over any entrepreneurship initiative.  “Government jobs put you in a position of power and provide better security. Apart from salary it provides one medical facilities, residence, transportation costs and others. Maternity leaves and other benefits are given to women and a lot of other perks are there during the job,’’ said Rohit Aswal, a government job aspirant for the last three years.

“Yes there is a craze for government jobs in our society. My parents were also government employees so I have seen the benefits of having a government job. This is the reason I prefer this job,’’ said Akanksha Thakur, another such aspirant.

Talking about the self employment schemes of government such as start up and loans offered by the banks for them, Thakur said that there is a lack of awareness among youth for start-ups and about its policies. “People still hesitate to be entrepreneurs as good finance and family support are needed for it,’’ she said.
