Gone are the days when parents would tell their children to “earn a university degree to get a good job”. With approximately 1.5 million engineering students passing out every year, competition for jobs is at an all-time high. The average salaries of fresh graduates continue to decrease every year.
What’s more? The employers face a huge challenge in terms of recruiting candidates with job-ready skills. As technology takes over most of the menial jobs, there is a need for the engineering graduates to be trained in contemporary technologies like data analytics, artificial intelligence, big data, java enterprise app
development etc. However, only a few graduates are investing in training themselves in these new technologies and largely depend on their employers to do so. Companies, on the other hand, do not wish to invest time and money to make fresh recruits “employable”.
This presents an opportunity to the IT training solutions to bridge the prevailing gap and train graduates in contemporary digital skills. NIIT digiNxt programs will help groom engineering students aspiring for lucrative careers to achieve their career aspirations, because just an engineering degree is not good enough anymore.
