How often have you heard people saying that there are no adequate jobs in the country for Engineers?
Most probably, consistently for the last many years!
But have you ever tried to look at the other side of the story? No..?? Okay, let's do it now - but before that go through the below-mentioned facts and figures:
- As per the reports, India produces 15-17 Lakh engineers every year.
- And more than 80% of these tech graduates are actually not employable for a job because of the lack of the required skill set.
- Reports also say that out of 1000 tech graduates, only 25-27% of them are confident of landing up their dream job in accordance with their skill.
- Less than 4% of engineers are employable in software-related jobs at start-ups.
- The job opportunities for tech graduates are expected to grow by 13-15% in the next 6-7 years.
- Approximately, 50 million jobs are going to be created worldwide in the trending tech trend space in the coming times.
The above-mentioned data contradicts the much-hyped statement that there are no jobs for engineers as in actuality, the tech world (particularly the IT sector) is growing exponentially and leveraging the world with numerous career opportunities. The core problems lie within the foundation itself as a majority of the engineers don't have the required skills and exposure relevant to the industry. The main reasons are
- The gap between Engineering Curriculum and Industry's Requirements
- Lack of Hands-on Training and Practical Exposure
- Lack of Awareness and Guidance
- Lack of Quality Learning Resources
