Mr. Ari Speaks @ Alpha Engineering College on Employability Skills 6th Sep'14

 Mr. Ari was invited as Moderator of a Panel Discussion on the "Employability Skills" at the Placement Officers meet by Alpha Engineering College, Chennai.

In his opening address at the Placement Officers' Meet, he has addressed the below concerns.

About 75% of the engineering graduates coming out of Indian Colleges or Universities are unemployable, a report says. The corporate spend about US$ 130 billion every year on training the new recruits to make them employable, another report says. Many Universities / Engineering colleges have become almost placement centers rather than places for imparting knowledge.

The question now comes to everyone's mind is "Who is responsible for making the students employable? The Placement Officers and HR Managers are in a quandary as to who should bear these expenses and who are the Stakeholders to this disturbing situation. The professors are there for teaching, not for training. Teaching is not same as training. The placement officers play a vital role in bridging the employment gap by arranging for campus interviews.

Is the "main or basic function" of an engineering college to provide employment or impart engineering knowledge. The solution lies in looking at the end-beneficiary of such skill-based trainings. It's obvious that the employer is the one who's going to reap the benefits of a good, productive employee.
