Importance of being “Employable”

Sep 1, 2017 17:53 IST

What plagues the youth of our great nationis this- “More than 60% of the eight lakh engineers graduating from technical institutions across the country every year remain unemployed”- These figures have not been raked up by anyone other than the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) itself.This, thus, translates to a total potential loss of 20 lakh man days annually. That's not all. Less than 1% of engineering students participate in summer internships and just 15% of engineering programmes offered by over 3,200 institutions are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA)- all these have been directly attributed to the fact that the skills imparted to students at the Graduation or Post Graduation level is not aligned to Industry standards, making their degrees moot and unnecessary.

So now what? The obvious question that comes to a person’s mind when they contemplate this issue is how to differentiate between the right and wrong CHOICES in selection of not only the Program of study, but also the Institution. For instance, mere association of the Institution or University of choice with professional bodies like ASSOCHAM, CII, FICCI etc., no doubt enable a student or graduate to stay connected with the industry but this alone is not sufficient!
