The challenges related to the employability scenario in our country are reasonably understood by all relevant stakeholders. However, different stakeholders have a different role to play for addressing these challenges. The topic of improving employability and entrepreneurship has clearly gained momentum and some initial efforts are already visible. The momentum needs to be built further and channelled in the right direction to harness the true potential of the ‘demographic dividend’.
To take this forward and address we are pleased to inform you that FICCI is organizing a half-day seminar on “Fostering Employability”, on 22nd September 2015 from 10:00AM - 01:00PM in Hotel Taj Deccan, Hyderabad, along with the event partner “SMART Training Resources India Pvt Ltd”. One dimension of the success of graduates is in securing a decent employment after the completion of their Programme. There is no group for whom this is more important than today’s young people. The challenges young people currently face in gaining a foothold in the job market have both an immediate and a lasting impact on individuals, families, and societies.
In a context of considerable changes in the job market, Universities are urged to ensure that they produce ‘employable’ graduates, and graduates themselves are exhorted to continually develop their personal skills, qualities and experiences in order to compete in the graduate job market. And yet, there are graduates who are unemployed or underemployed, while employers say that they cannot find the people with the right skills.Questions are being raised about the quality and the ability of graduates to meet the needs of employers. Employability is far bigger a challenge than unemployment. Industry leaders feel that the “skills” and “quality” of the workforce need a lot of improvement.
The aim of this seminar is to address the challenges facing us all in developing relevant skills and ensuring both their effective supply and a better match with demand. Considering the importance of the event, we are pleased to invite–College Chairman, Principals, Training & Placement Officers and Senior Professors/HODs-to attend the Seminar as delegates. In case you are pre-occupied, you may nominate other senior representatives of your organization to attend the event.
