Why be a Job-Ready Graduate?
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) have estimated that India would face a 'talent gap' - the lack of right skills for the job required - over the next 5 years. The report titled, 'India's Demographic Dilemma' cites the main reason for the talent gap is that educational institutions do not impart employable skills.
Every year the Indian education system produces about 500,000 technical graduates and 23 lakh graduates. According to NASSCOM estimates, 75% and 90% of these respectively are not considered employable.
Most college graduates remain unemployable because of a lack of job-oriented training.
Industry demands that graduates are skilled at the time of employment.
The skills that can get a graduate employed include Domain related skills, multi-functional skills i.e. ability to deliver in diverse roles and communication skills
