LinkedIn inks MoU with govt to create jobs for students
04 November 2016 Current Affairs: Leading global professional network LinkedIn  has signed an agreement with the human resource development ministry to create more job opportunities for Indian students.

As part of the MoU, LinkedIn’s ‘Placements’ product will be adopted by all Indian colleges affiliated with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

Placements’ provides a level-playing field for all students, regardless of their location or college and allows them to take an online assessment test, which gives them direct access to thousands of openings in 35 top corporates in India.

Placements’ was piloted in November 2015 and then LinkedIn opened the product in September 2016 to students at all colleges and universities in India.

In less than eight weeks from the launch, over two lakh students registered for the product and there were over 1.2 million job applications.
