Verify portal

Answering to a question, Dr. Sethumadhavan seating from AIMS (Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences) Kochi, said students should ensure the authenticity of the job portal which they use before sharing their personal and professional information.

“Online research is quick and can list a broad variety of job offers but not all of them are serious and reliable. Initially try to visit the classified or professional advertisements websites, where offers are divided in to regions or sectors, and their structure will make the search easier,” he added.

The goal of Online Gurukul is to assist and empower needy students. The classes are being transmitted through Amrita University's award winning E-Learning platform - A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive E-Learning World).
