Employment Opportunities In J&K – Article

Employment, considered as milestone, great achievement, an unparalleled feat in life, in recent times of intense competition. A tag that save you from a lot of criticism, fortuitous as well as intentional. So many people around you are worried about your bright future and never miss a chance to express their concerns. The transition phase inbetween learning and earning is indeed the most difficult one in entire life. Pricky suggestions and untimely appraisals of “Degree Digits” can reverse the air conditioning. In short, making you uncomfortable. Every time you hang out on the web, at a cafe or even in the examination hall (exclusions applied), you would have tackled the word “Unemployment”. A state of financial dearth, psychological and intellectual dormancy, where the mind does not contribute in a constructive regime. The mother-ship of all problems. “An unoccupied mind is home to Satan”, as they say in Hindi.

Unemployment figures are really a matter of concern. The digits published this year are all time high of past 5 years. According to a report by Labour Bureau, the unemployment rate stands at 5%, with figures significantly higher at 8.7% for women and 4.3 % for men. The dearth in jobs is primarily due to the large size of the population and partially due to ignorance of the past Governments, not to blame but criticize. The only problem was that they tried to constrict the menace instead of acting on the roots. The policies were not optimistic, hence fell flat under immense pressure. A long-term investment in manufacture and service sector coupled with a firm policy on Govt’s behalf is adequate to improve the employment rates.

Unemployment Scenario in various D-countries


The matching figures of the USA and India express the criticality of the problem. 5% unemployed population is  a serious liability to be borne. Well, the D-countries (D stands for developed) have found a way out,  Unemployment Benefits. An amount given in the form of social welfare payments, meant to support the unemployed. The D-countries to employ this method are the USA, UK, New Zealand, Canada, Norway, Saudi Arabia, etc, with USA providing a whooping $542 at max per week. Isn’t the USA great. But, here in India no provisions for such incentives exist. You have to fight your way up the ladder and reach the top. Ours is a purely competitive country. If extra-ordinary standards don’t, then intense competition rules here.

Solution is Employment


Each and every expert present here, there and everywhere talks only about “Unemployment”. The articles on the web make the discussion so intense and deep as if Human existence is at stake. The political analysts, social workers and opposition leaders all exhibit their concerns intensely and passionately. But, instead of focusing all the energy and resources into exaggerating the problem, why not spread awareness among the unemployed. Ignorance and unawareness induce all difficulties. If you know where to start from, you will definitely walk the walk. On the contrary, if you don’t know your starting point, the journey will not start. So, decide what you want to do. Start from a point. Climb the ladder slowly and steadily. And stop at infinity.

Have a passion, work for it. A chef can cook. A sports-lover can give his best to a game. Suppose you put an athlete into civil-engineering course, she may not perform her best. But if you give her a chance to prove herself at the game she loves, she would definitely try her level best. Best comes out when you are passionate. Employment in the ambit of passion is the best counter-measure to unemployment. Forced employment is one of the chief reasons of unemployment. The start is always hard. Start from scrap, and make a scrapper out of it. Never hesitate to go down. Because even the “Paani-Puri Wala” in this country can earn 50 crores, then why not you ?

The best way to predict future is to create it.
