Degree holding youth cannot find Job
- Young graduates are not industry-ready despite having degrees from prestigious colleges
- A vast majority of graduates are virtually unemployable due to a skill-gap, according to a report by the FICCI and E&Y
- Career Lift offers a Career Enhancer Kit for colleges/universities to help their students prepare for campus placements and acquire good jobs
In today’s competitive world, every young person has the ambition to pursue a degree from an elite college that will get them a respectable job. However, even at the best colleges and universities in the country, the coursework is outdated and does not suit as per industry requirements. Director of Career Lift Ed-Tech, Mr. Nitil Gupta says, “the courses designed in Colleges/Universitiesmiss out on teaching practical and technical skills that will not only help students land a job with top companies, but also help them in career progression. Therefore, despite investing money, time, and efforts, institutes are simply unable to produce graduates who will thrive in competitive job markets”. The latest Higher Education report published by FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) and Ernst &Young says that 93% of the MBA and 80% of the engineering graduates in India are unemployable because of the gap between what they are taught in college and industry requirements. It goes on to say that out of India’s six million graduates, a vast majority are not “industry-ready’ because of a skill-gap. Colleges/Universities need to focus more on technical and practical training rather than just granting degrees.
