In a bid to ensure jobs for at least 20,000 students across India, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has organised India's first and largest media job festival -- Great Indian Media Job Festival.

The job fest, organised in alliance with the Media and Entertainment Skill Council (MESC), began on January 27 and will continue till February 1.

Hiring will be carried in 78 Arena/MAAC Centres in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Indore, Pune and Baroda.

More than 100 recruiters will hire staff across graphic design, 3D modelling, VFX, web designing, motion graphics, rotoscopy, animation and other job roles.

The companies include Amazon, Digitoonz Media, Technicolor, MPC Films, Byjus, and Wackytoon.

Speaking about the initiative, Mahendra Nath Pandey, Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said: "The sector (media and entertainment) has significant potential, and by bridging the gap between industry and adequate skilled professionals, it can reach newer heights."

"Through our efforts under the Skill India Mission, we aim to create a competent workforce not only fulfilling the demands of the domestic market but also making its mark globally," Pandey added.
