One-day seminar on fostering employability


Being job-ready is essential for a successful career. And job-ready or employability is not just about the educational qualifications, but also about the need to have the required soft skills like communication, planning, decision making, etc., which play a key role in performance at work along with contributing to the organization in the most productive manner possible.

However, educational institutions seldom tend to lay emphasis on this aspect which has resulted in a large gap in the employability skill of applicants and requirements of organizations. In an attempt to bridge this gap, FICCI is gearing up to host a three-hour-long-seminar on “Fostering Employability” at Hotel Taj Deccan, Hyderabad, from 10 am to 1 pm on September 22, 2015 along with “SMART Training Resources India Pvt Ltd,” as the event partner.

 Soft skills as a key requirement for employability has been gaining popularity over the years by thought leaders. This has resulted in an increased emphasis for graduating students to be equipped with all the key soft skills, which will make them job ready.

 In a country like India, which has a huge number of educated, but, unemployed youth, lack of employability is a major cause of concern. The challenge of employability is clearly understood by all the relevant stakeholders and thought leaders in the country. Well, this issue has persisted for a several years. There is an increased effort over the past few years to bridge this gap posed by lack of employability skills.

The need to improve employability and foster entrepreneurial skills have clearly gained momentum. But this needs to be built further and channelled in the right direction to harness the potential of India’s demographic dividend.

The need to succeed in a career, while maintaining a proper work-life balance is something that seems to drive the Gen Y. However, many a time, a suitable job doesn’t seem to fall in the kitty, in spite of the candidate being meritorious from the qualification perspective, and this three-hour-long workshop is aimed at helping such students find light at the end of the tunnel.

The seminar aims to address the challenges faced by youngsters in developing the key skills to ensure that there is a perfect sync between supply and demand. The event has a great potential to mould the career path of the target audience, which is why the workshop is aimed at fostering employability for academia, professionals and key stakeholders in the process of career building.

The best things in life are free, which is why the attendees of this seminar need not spend money to be part of it. All you have to do is to mark the date and be there at the Taj Deccan  September 22, 2015 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and learn the art of fostering employability.
