The Rajasthan government has been making continuous efforts to bring the state’s youth into the mainstream by supporting them in improving their employability and opening up job opportunities for them. Now, the state government has announced a two-day job fair on July 26-27 as part of Rajasthan Digifest in Bikaner.
Digifest is a flagship event of Rajasthan government that was started in 2016 to strengthen the technology and IT ecosystem in the state.
The state Department of Information Technology and Communication (DoITC) is organising the fourth edition of Rajasthan Digifest in Bikaner at the Government Polytechnic College in the city. The event will provide opportunities to aspiring students, IT professionals, emerging entrepreneurs, and business dignitaries of the state to brainstorm, network, and get their ideas noticed.
Apart from the job fair, Rajasthan Digifest Bikaner will host events such as TecRush, Hackathon 5.0, e-Mitra Hackathon, Eduhack, Green-A-Thon, Technology Exhibition, and Startup Fest.
Rajasthan Job Fair: Where Talent Meets Opportunity
The Rajasthan Job Fair aims to bring together recruiters, tech managers, and candidates with the aim of providing the state’s youth opportunities to bag job offers from various well-known companies.
According to a DoIT&C official, “One will have a golden chance to interact directly with recruiters across the nation. The platform will not only accelerate the hiring process but will also provide insights on what leading companies are looking for. Each learner is invited to Rajasthan Job Fair to write a new chapter in their life.”
The fair will not only provide on-the-spot job offers but will also train candidates to improve their future job prospects. There will be multiple training and grooming sessions for the candidates.
From resume-making to building effective communication skills, the candidates will be trained and prepared for all aspects of job hunting. Those who are unable to secure job offers will be given tips and tricks on increasing their employability quotient.
Who Should Attend The Rajasthan Job Fair, Bikaner?
The candidates participating in the Rajasthan Job Fair, Bikaner, must be Class XII passouts; there is no minimum experience criteria.
The participants need to register themselves online beforehand or on- the- spot via the Job Fair website. They will receive a registration number, which needs to be shown at the registration counter at the venue.
The selection process will start from 9 am on both the days (July 25-26). The participants will be given predetermined time slots for interview sessions and must come with their CVs and other relevant documents.
More than 280 companies will be participating in the job fair. This includes names such as Oppo, Idea, VIVO, AU Small Finance Bank, IDFC, IndusInd Bank Amazon, Flipkart, and DigiLearnings, among others.

Hoping To Cross The Milestones Achieved In Jaipur, Sikar, And Udaipur Job Fairs
Earlier this year, the state government had organised job fairs in Jaipur (March), Sikar (June) and Udaipur (July).
Recently, the Rajasthan job fair was organised in Udaipur on July 4, 2018. According to reports:
- A total of 18728 applicants registered for the job fair
- Out of these, 7K applicants participated in the fair
- 1,530 spot offers were made by companies after taking students through screening rounds
- Another 2,005 applicants were shortlisted for further interview rounds by the participating companies
With the Rajasthan job fair in Bikaner, the state government is looking to break these records and bring more on-the-spot offer for the participants.
When it comes to innovation, Rajasthan has always set its standard high. Technological advancements have always been a top-notch priority for the Rajasthan government and the Rajasthan IT Day and Digifest are a reflection of this.
These events have helped the state government gain an understanding of how it can improve its existing plans and programmes to offer maximum benefits to the upcoming generation.
Apart from this, the Hon’ble CM Vasundhara Raje has also taken several steps to boost the state of entrepreneurship in Rajasthan, thus creating more avenues for job creation. Most recently, Rajasthan was ranked 9th in the DIPP (Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion) and World Bank-released ease of doing business index for states.
Rajasthan is now eyeing the top slot in the DIPP’s much-awaited State Startup Ranking framework in the long term. However, in the near term, the goal is to increase the number of employed youth in the state and the Job Fair Bikaner is just the right place to start.
