PRAYAANA towards the Success of ‘ComeBack to Career’ Job Fair

The Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council (K-DISC) and Kerala Knowledge Economy Mission (KKEM) collaboratively organized job fairs all over the state of Kerala.

One part of this job fair was a back to career session that was held exclusively for women who need to get back into their careers after a break.  There was a three-hour-long training session conducted by the Prayaana group about the importance of women resuming their careers after a break. Prayaana is a career support mission that gives support for women for re-entering their careers or becoming entrepreneurs.

The training was given on why women should work and become financially independent, the benefits of being financially independent and how a woman who is not working is making no contribution to the economy of the country. The women were given examples of success stories of other women. The training session also contained a section where women were provided mental support and taught how to tackle the adversaries they may face while resuming their careers.

These back to career sessions were held on 21 December 2021 in Thiruvananthapuram, 10 January 2022 in Calicut and 16 January 2022 in Ernakulam. The Job fair was widely successful and about 269 candidates secured jobs through this initiative.
