“It’s not possible to give jobs to everyone, Develop skills and become entrepreneurs: Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar

Mysuru, March 9, 2022 (www.justkannada.in): “The government cannot provide jobs to all literates. Therefore, I advise all the educated youth to develop skills and undertake self-employment, become entrepreneurs,” observed Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, University of Mysore.
He delivered a special lecture on the topic, “Basic Science Weapon,’ organized by the Microbiology Department, in association with the Prof. S. Gopal Memorial Foundation, held at the Vignana Bhavana in Manasagangotri campus.
“Thousands of people are coming out of colleges as graduates today. But a majority of them don’t know what to do. As a result of these, we are seeing today where so many people who have done graduation and post-graduation are applying for ‘D’ group jobs. A major reason for this is lack of skills. Also, people should shun love for government jobs. The youth should start thinking of undertaking self-employment and becoming entrepreneurs,” he advised.
“During earlier days teachers used to teach very nicely and they also used to guide the students towards a good career. Prof. S. Gopal was my teacher. I like his principles and his humanity. He used to inspire everyone and I am also one who was inspired by him. But today such teachers are very rare,” he observed.
“There were 650 teachers in the University of Mysore. But now it has reduced to 260. The State Government should think about the recruitment of teachers. Today there is competition everywhere. That is why a person who has done MA is working as a clerk. Lack of skills is a major reason for this. I advise stopping thinking of getting a government job and trying to think about becoming an entrepreneur and working in different companies. The career hub established by the University of Mysore is helping many youths in procuring jobs,” he added.
Prof. P. Venkataramaiah, former Vice-Chancellor, CSIR-CFTRI Chemistry Protein Division Head Prof. Rajgopal, Microbiology Division head Prof. S. Satish, Shubha Gopal, and others were present.
