​Finding a job is particularly difficult for young people as job field is limited and limited scopes are too saturated. Thought ​we have number of success in moving forward with digital Bangladesh vision but ​no planning will be enough if we fail to create new job opportunities. Governments for the reason has developed a national action plans targeting youth employment.

Recently an exceptional exhibition of software technology name Sheikh Hasina Software Technology Park has been inaugurated by state minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak in Jessore. This is another step towards final advancement of ICT division in our country.

Our generation is very much skilled and potential who require motivation to flourish as a resource. State Minister Palak assured that enough initiatives has been taken by GOVT to patronize the latent talents out of this youth community and building IT parks and villages is the reflection of his commitment.
