Greetings to all readers..
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives, it is the one that is the most adaptable to change – By Charles Darwin.
Today if you look at the job demand and skill supply, it is very transparent that our industries are facing a huge challenge to meet the global trending skill in-demand. Are we really facing a skill gap or does the institutions are not adequately doing research to know where the industry is heading towards and what curriculum to be modified to keep the students abreast of the new industry trends and skill demands?
Last year 2019 a survey revealed some interesting statistics about the lack of skill around our engineers. You can visit the link to know more in detail. Technology being the underlying element across any engineering stream, it is imperative by the academic institution to break the ice to strengthen engineer’s knowledge, ability, attitude and industry exposure.
On the other positive side, the students in today’s time have to be flexible and should have the right attitude to learn and adapt to work in any domain. This process of learning and upskilling can only be the model to be successful. There are plethora of employment opportunities from the start-ups and corporates who are spinning up in the medical, agri, Digital media, Artificial intelligence, Data Science etc. domain where the opportunities are thrown up and job openings vacant.
Also people who are willing to take the entrepreneur path, Govt has also opened up startupindia.gov.in portal an online networking platform for start-ups and entrepreneurs, connecting them to tens of thousands of Investors, Incubators, Accelerators, Mentors and other start-ups across a range of industries, locations to explore themselves with complete support to make it to the next level.
The new work order is one that’s open to learn, re-learn, collaborate, and be agile. An essential skill for the next decade will be the ability to view change not as a challenge, but as an opportunity to grow, innovate, and move-on.
