Baku, January 25, AZERTAC
Speaking to the conference, jointly organized by the National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (Employers’) organizations of Azerbaijan (ASK) and the International Labor Organization (ILO) on ”Youth Employment: Employers’ views, challenges and perspectives”, Rector of the Azerbaijan State University of Economics (UNEC), professor Adalat Muradov drew the audience’s attention to the rapidly changing principles and emerging approaches in the modern labor market. He noted that, the unified mass demand in the 4th industrial revolution was replaced by the individualized requirement and added that, the application of the most flexible technologies realizing it increased the demand for creative and innovative professionals.
The rector said that, the concept of career in the post-soviet society was changing its traditional essence, as well. So, at present the concept of career refers not to the fact that a worker served in a particular company for a lifetime, but rather reflected the enhancement of the professionalism of that employee.
The rector also noted that, UNEC reattains the responsibility for its graduates. Within the framework of the “UNEC2B” platform presented to the business world the university offers “maintenance services” during three years, when hiring the graduates of the university. Also, if the weaknesses of the senior UNEC students are found during a job interview, UNEC will take over the elimination of those weaknesses until graduation. Apart from that, job.unec.edu.az portal had been created and this virtual labor market is the effective communication link between students and employers.
The UNEC rector emphasized the relevance of distance education to flexibly and adequately respond to the needs of the labor market. The most modern distance education infrastructure created at UNEC is fully capable to respond to any training needs of employers. So, the employees can participate in distant training sessions provided at UNEC without leaving their place of employment and attend the classes delivered by involving the world-renowned experts.
