OPPORTUNITIES @ IBEON INFOTECH PVT LTD
IBeON infotech found that the most important reason for unemployment is the poor quality of graduates, who lack skills for employability in corporate companies and enterprises. Only around 20% of graduates and 35% of engineering graduates are directly employable. It is also found that quality of education delivered in most institutions is very poor. So, the main challenge today is not only making the graduates employable but also to ensure that there are more number of competent Industry ready Graduates for better productivity & innovation.
Earlier, fresh graduates who get hired by leading companies have to go through an Induction on Product oriented or Process oriented or focused in-house trainig programs. These programs are usually driven & guided by internal engineers, managers and product/process specialists and for over 4 to 6 months. These programs involve lot of efforts, time & costs for any corporate. But these days due to the focus on higher profitability and high attrition, corporates do not invest on time, money or effort to train new recruits. They expect the candidates to be productive right from the first day. So, most of the students passing out do not get adequate opportunities to get the requisite on-the-job training/industry exposure while they are studying. This limits their technical know-how and competency.
The imperatives of new knowledge era are to be acknowledged and the challenge of the Globalised higher education should be addressed by creating a tech-savvy education system to develop job skills to all students. ‘Industry and Academia connect’ is critical to ensure curriculum and skills in line with requirements. Skill building is really very crucial to ensure employability, Academia to understand and make sure that,
knowledge + skills + global professional skills = good jobs
To bridge Industry & Education sector gap by catering to the needs of Industry & Students, IBeON and the unique programmes offered by IBeON infotech are important:
1). To create a path where Industry & Educational institutions can synergize efforts to train better manpower.
2). Develop the requisite Industry know-how for students to facilitate better employability.
3). Ensure more number of job ready Graduates pool is available for the Industry to recruit.
