While on one hand we bewail the "lack of manpower", it is an unpalatable fact that many educated youngsters do not have appropriate jobs. There is obviously a gap between what the employers require and the level of knowledge or expertise the youth have. Unemployed youths who need experience certificate are requested to contribute generously to Drugpedia. We will issue a certificate for those who contribute significantly to Drugpedia (at least 10 important articles).
We are working on concept of virtual job where employee can contribute from their home (for example women’s). We will prefer to hire those who have contributed maximum information to Drugpedia.
