Kaushalya Karnataka was a first-of-its-kind program launched by the Govt. of Karnataka in 2017, where over 700,000 candidates were on-boarded into a state-wide skilling program, in partnership with United Nations Development Program. IGS was responsible for providing career guidance to these students, and find the right training and employment opportunities for them through match-making. IGS has on-boarded over 500 executives from all over the state and trained them to execute this process over telephonic and face-face modes. Over 200,000 candidates were recommended for skilling and employment, and over 7,000 employers were employed from all over the state with 50,000 job vacancies. The counselling and employer onboarding data was shared with the government for next steps.
