• HDFC Bank to provide on the job training, conduct guest lectures, mentor students
Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University has launched a training course for graduates, aimed at bridging the skills-gap in the banking industry and transforming candidates into job-ready professionals.
The university has partnered with HDFC Bank to conduct guest lectures of the training course, titled ‘M.Voc’ programme. The Bank will also provide on the job training to students and mentor them.
Applicants will undergo a robust selection process and HDFC Bank will make a conditional offer of employment to selected candidates at the start of the course.
Extending to two years, ‘M.Voc’ will craft talented graduates under the age of 25, into job-ready professionals by training them for various retail (branch) banking roles such as personal bankers and tellers.
The initiative is in line with the government of India’s Skill Development programme. Commenting on this alliance, Raj Nehru, Vice Chancellor, Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University, said, “We are excited to partner with HDFC Bank to launch a course of banking. The association with the Bank will go a long way in fulfilling the Vishwakarma Skill University’s promise of providing skilled and employment-ready candidates to the financial services industry. We hope to create more such opportunities across various industries that will not only add value to businesses but also create employment opportunities across the country.”
Speaking on the training programme, Jasmeet Singh Anand, Regional Head – Haryana, HDFC Bank said, “Finding fresh graduates with the right career and motivational fit is key to any talent acquisition strategy at entry level. Such partnerships will equip graduates with skill sets aligned with their career aspirations. We are confident that through this course we will build a fine talent pool in sync with the requirements of the Bank.”
