Interview-

Careers360: What is the job outlook for fresh graduates in Aerospace Engineering?

Chamola: The Indian defence and aerospace industry present tremendous opportunities in manufacturing, design, maintenance, repair and overhaul. With the ‘Make in India’ mandate gaining momentum, the time is ripe to leverage partnerships and create strategic joint ventures to tap the potential aerospace/aviation market, both civil and defence, in India and abroad.  

 

Careers360: What challenges do you face while recruiting freshers?

Chamola: Even as the number of candidates applying to posts at the entry level at HAL is quite large, we face difficulty in attracting talent from premier technical institutes. We have also visited campuses of premier institutes for placements in the past. However, retention of talent from such institutes has always been a challenge. 

 

Careers360: What strategies do you adopt to attract and retain skilled workforce?

Chamola: Aviation is a highly technology-oriented industry. Freshers on induction in the executive cadre, undergo a 52-week training programme, which includes modules like Basic Management Programme at HAL Management Academy, an institutional phase at institutes of repute viz. IITs, IIMs, XLRI etc. Personnel engaged in the non-executive cadre also undergo a 52-week structured training at in-house Technical Training Institutes. Periodic training is also imparted to executives and workmen, in-house as well as at external institutions. In order to cater to the individual requirement of officers for skill and knowledge enhancement, HAL has tie-ups with Cranfield Institute of Technology, Britain; IITs; IIMs; XLRI etc. for sponsorship of employees for higher studies.
