Optaamaze is an endeavour to combine all the requisites of success to equip the youth of our country for a dream career for the simple reason that academic achievements are often not enough to get jobs for 70% of our population. Optaamaze has been founded by a set of professionals whose main vision is to make every youth of this country employable by equipping them with industry relevant skills which is a combination of soft skills and functional skills.
To actualize the aforesaid vision certain steps; important steps are to be followed which are:
Mobilization is the fundamental step in the Vocational Education and Training process. Mobilization starts with creating the ground connect i.e. meeting the key stakeholders at a village level, spreading awareness about the benefits of Vocational Training and the Career path available to them thereafter.
Counselling sessions and campaigns delivering key information on offerings are conducted, followed by surveys and feedback from the local target populace in order to enable the candidate to choose the best fit course from our set of offerings. This activity demands inventiveness, resourcefulness and steadfast determination in order to actively capture the interest of responsive candidates and create a sense of curiosity and desire in the rest. After all, it is critical to build a sense of trust and deep understanding between yourself and the target customers to ensure the programme has maximum impact.
Job Mela’s are then conducted at a district level in order to give potential candidates an insight into our course offerings. We bring in ex candidates, instructors and our placement literature to demonstrate to the candidate what the future holds in store based on his selection.
This is followed by screening of candidates for the training programme based on pre requisites for each course offering and willingness and ability of the candidate to succeed in the chosen vertical.
Mobilization teams are also actively part of the post-placement monitoring process as they are responsible for understanding the reasons for withdrawal of candidate from the program or job and engaging him in counselling and assisting in re-entry into the system if possible. They play a critical role in arresting attrition since it is not easy for this segment to acclimatize themselves to a new environment at work.

It defines our business and quality training is the essence of what we are, what we do and how we do it!
