We are looking at China now.
When the whole world is looking towards India i guess you need to rethink it.
Indians have got more into better organizational architecture as well as process architecture than 3 years ago.
I agree with the report. But i do not agree with the interpretation.
only one in four engineering graduates to be employable. The rest were deficient in the required technical skills, fluency in English or ability to work in a team or deliver basic oral presentations.
Mark let me tell you ,many people viewing this post might think that only one in four are employable.
fluency in English
basic oral presentations
makes this count as big.
see the problem is not the logical or coding problems of indian engineers but the problem is communication,etiquettes and fluency in english problem.
India is basically a country of countries with about more than 20 languages and 1000's of dialects being spoken where English is not a primary language.
so obviosly there would be problems with fluency in English or oral presentations.
The problem has been identified and this problem also branches to another
Most of the big MNCS like TCS,Wipro,Satyam, etc etc give 3 months of extensive foreign language training ,technical training and soft skill traiing to employees.
For others working in small companies they acquire all that with experience.
This situation makes a market where good engineers can demand a lot of money.
Ya thats too.Someday that will affect the indian market as it will not be able to provide cheap softwares.
2.5 years back TCS would give 8k for entry level freshers and 4k were given in smaller companies.
Today 22k is given to entry level freshers.
I think this count may be a too much if its considered that 3 out of 4 are not employable.
Team work,Communication plays an important part in development.
But its not necessary that all development takes place in English.
We in our team talk in our local language only.
Only our marketing persons and CEO talks to the clients and negotiate and they know english. Out of 300 employee staff of my company if 250 are not able to speak in english or make oral presentation then that does not mean that we are logicall ill or are not employable.
But ofcourse if need to work on onsite project, dealing with foreign clients may be a problem.
But still not everybody in the team talks directly to the clients.
And English course can teach the language in 3 months.
yes ofcourse ability to work in team or techinical problems are a thing of concern.
[Can things like this published so as can malign the India Growth Story.
I am sure it will be out of topic here but the same thing is said about h1 person in america that they are sub-standard and cheap labour. But i dont know how Indra nooyi became the world wide president of pepsico america ?
Am i too emotional on this issue?
because i dont know since when the inability to speak english make someone not employable
