Transforming fresh talent to Industry ready Workforce Catalyst in Academia to Industry Partnership

Ctrl+Shift+Alter: Industry finds the right code missing in IT grads

Recession is almost a thing of the past and there is a reason to smile as hirings are back. However, the IT sector continues to be plagued by the poor quality of IT Professionals churned out by colleges in the country. Most of those hired are still not industry-ready. While India produces close to 500,000 graduates from its engineering colleges every year, the industry is unanimous about their inadequate skill sets. According to a Nasscom estimate, only 25% of the engineers graduating are employable.
The IT industry’s demands and the universities’ quality of academic supplies have not been tallying for a while. As universities fail to adequately prepare students for the professional world, most IT companies are forced to increase the duration of training and consequently annual expenditure.
The current curriculum in colleges is inadequate to prepare students into employable resources. Ideally the syllabus should be aligned to the needs of the industry. However at Arcelia Academy we groom fresh talents to be industry ready.
IT sector is a people-based industry requiring niche skills. While it could be difficult for fresher to be equipped with all the skill sets, a little more than some basic knowledge is expected, say experts. To meet the requirements of the industry the students need to be equipped with the relevant subject matter expertise and soft skills. However, certain basic knowledge is expected of the students. In our current education system, neither the content nor the delivery is adequate. Hence Arcelia has taken the initiative to do its own bit and started the academy program where fresher are trained on relevant technologies and skill-set that prepare them to qualify for the job market and meet the needs of the industry.
The skill gap is due to the lack of active partnership between the industry and Academic Institutions. Our Academy Program has been designed to address the employability issue effectively and identify ways and means of empowering students.
The industry has been suffering for years with market-ready talent becoming a rare commodity. The requirements of the companies keep changing too.
However, given the demand-supply gap, job seekers have reasons to rejoice. All that is required is to equip themselves with the right skills and be ?Industry Ready?. And the first step towards this can be to join Arcelia Academy Program.
