Everybody deserves an equal chance

Getting a government job involves a good amount of effort but no matter one's educational background, they can be called for interviews. In this case, not getting a job can be attributed to a dearth of knowledge and sagacity.

However, the experience is different when it comes to getting a job in a private enterprise. We often hear employers talk about not finding candidates who are talented, tech-savvy, skillful, and enterprising. In quest of competent candidates, they tend to limit their search within a certain domain. We are progressively endorsing the perception that talented candidates are only from the top few universities.

We circumscribe our pursuit of candidates to a handful of universities and we fail to look far beyond this sphere. Not only does it lead to potential candidates being deprived of opportunities to attend interviews but it also blatantly shows that discrimination at the workplace begins from the ground up. This could be a reason why many graduates, after concluding their tertiary education from a university other than the most reputed, mostly fail to get jobs in renowned private organisations. It is imperative that the government body and concerned authorities be aware of this fact and pay due attention to this issue before the situation gets worse.
