HT Media’s Shine.com joins hands with Indian Air Force

Shine.com will help retired and retiring Air Force personnel find a second career in the corporate world

BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | October 17, 2011

The Indian Air Force (IAF) has partnered with Shine.com to help their retired and retiring personnel find a second career in the corporate world.  On Saturday, the IAF inaugurated a two-day placement fair in the city in collaboration with Shine.com.

The fair, held for ex-warriors of the IAF saw a huge turnout both from recruiters as well as those seeking jobs.  Many IAF personnel retire at around the age of 40, with a productive span of nearly 15-20 years ahead of them.  Because of their long, technology-intensive training and discipline, post retirement, ex-Servicemen and women are invaluable to the corporate sector.

“Air force is a technology-intensive service and the officers who retire from IAF are skilled, hardworking and have a wide range of skill sets. Since they get early retirement, it is our duty to help them in the transition from a job with the force to that in other sectors,” said Air Marshal Anil Chopra.

The fair was inaugurated by defence minister AK Antony and will go on till Sunday. “IAF offers a disciplined, well-trained and elite pool to which the industry should give priority during recruitment,” Antony said during the inauguration.

This is the sixth placement fair being held for retired personnel.

Shine.com, HT Media’s job portal, is partnering with the IAF Placement Cell to offer retiring Air Warriors with their expertise in the recruitment space to give them targeted and more effective corporate placement opportunities.  The association will stretch from assistance in resume building all the way to leveraging Shine.com’s database of employers in order to match the diverse skill sets of ex-IAF personnel with the perfect career option.

“The contribution of IAF is invaluable and the officers’ skills are unmatched. We will provide our expertise in getting them to the corporates. We have 40,000 potential jobs at our portal, Shine.com and we are willing to help the former officers to get the jobs they deserve,” said Rajiv Verma, CEO, Hindustan Times Media Limited.

The fair ends on Sunday and has already shown promising results for the participants, both candidates and recruiters.  The association between the IAFPC and Shine.com is a welcome opportunity for the members of the IAF looking to enter the corporate environment.
