We had a seminar on the career prospect of educated but unemployed youths of Bangladesh at Jamalpur on 27th August 2019. Jamalpur is a district out of 64 districts in Bangladesh, located at the middle of Bangladesh, some 200 km north of the Dhaka city. It was a part of the Mymensingh Division. Established in 1978, covering a total land area of 2,031.98 km2 (784.55 sq mi), Jamlpur district has a population of 2,292,674.

It was indeed an interactive session, where the speakers and the listeners both tried to reveal the hidden challenge of not getting the job where in Bangladesh there are huge numbers of jobs available. It was also focused that there is no alternatives of focusing on skills development
and technical training to manage a respectable job. The students came out motivated and few of them expressed their desires to join the Training.
