The Government has launched an online portal called National Career Service to provide employment services and career counselling, reports the Times of India. The portal claims to have a content repository with information on career options in more than 52 industry sectors and across 3,700 occupations. The National Career Service (NCS) portal lets users look for a career center, find a career counsellor, skill providers or local help on the platform. However, none of these categories are populated with much information. Registration is mandatory to access features like searching and apply for jobs, finding information on training programs etc. A user manual provided by the platform (pdf), details how users can manage their courses, provide feedback on local services and post grievances etc. The portal currently allows job seekers, employers, local service, household users, skill providers, counselors, placement organizations or government departments to register. Users also have the option to register with their employment exchange or skill providing institute IDs. The registration form requires mandatory identification using the Aadhaar card, driving license, PAN card, voters ID card, passport or an NREGA job card. The NCS is managed by the Directorate General of Employment and Training (DGE&T) and the Ministry of Labour and Employment (MoLE). The portal will also link to other government initiatives like employment exchanges, career centres and common service centres.
