According to a study conducted by India Today in 2016, only 7% of engineering graduates are considered to be fit for a job by companies.
Reason; they lack the skills. The study claims that 97% engineers wanted jobs in software engineering or core engineering, but only 3% had the suitable skills to be employed in the said field.
What does that tell you?
Are the students at fault for pursuing a discipline without thinking it through or the parents who pushed their kids to pursue the same?
While pondering over the reasons, one that struck the most was that most youngsters in India are unaware of their own aptitude.
Talking about the ones who are employed, I'm sure you have seen many people who aren't really happy with what they're doing. Being forced to opt for engineering, medicine or civil services is not uncommon.
Many parents want their kids to become a CA, an IAS or a doctor without really knowing what their kid wants. Is that right?
That really got us thinking. And hence we thought of taking people's views on the same.
You will be surprised to know that an astonishing number (around 51%) believes that most kids choose their career based on their parent's will. But, by the end of the story, your solution to it also awaits.
There's a solution to this problem (at least) for those who haven't graduated yet. Enroll yourself in SRM and graduate with the discipline you want to pursue in life. Whether it is Architecture and design, Science and humanities, management, medicine, or engineering, of course, you can apply for the same through here.
