Covid 19 outbreak worldwide has forced the countries to impose numerous restrictive measures, including social distancing complete and partial lockdowns. The economy of many countries came to a halt, including India. Schools and colleges were closed, and online teaching and learning gave limited practical exposure to students. Companies stopped hiring; instead, the offer letters which were rolled out were taken back. Salaries were deducted, and layoffs were announced. Several people lost their jobs. Students got anxious about their future during this environment of chaos and anxiety. Covid 19 significantly impacted the employability skills and employment opportunities. Thus, this study aims to measure the impact of COVID-19 on the employment and employability skills of university students. Data is collected from 163 university students across different disciplines and courses.
