The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched an academic job portal for NET, SET, PhD qualified candidates to bring their academic profile to the attention of universities and colleges and get them suitable placements. The academic portal has been created at UGC website ugc.ac.in
Candidates with NET / SET / PhD qualifications can visit the official website of the UGC Recruiting Portal (ugc.ac.in/jobportal/) to register and create their profile online for teaching jobs available in universities and colleges on this portal.
As per the notification, employers can search and browse the candidate’s academic profile available on this portal. The portal also allows employers to register and post jobs on this portal, allowing candidates to apply for jobs. Soon non-teaching jobs will also be included via the platform.
The official statement also mentions that the commission is in the process of upgrading the job portal with the inclusion of non-Teaching vacancies and also adding some new features. The upgraded portal will become operational shortly.
Earlier, all the higher educational institutions used to notify their vacancies for teaching and non-teaching posts through their respective websites or through media. This academic Job portal will not only make it easier for eligible candidates to find a job but will also make the recruitment process more transparent.
