A MoU to Bridge The Industry-Academia Gap
According to statistics, approximately 50, 00,000 graduates pass out every year in India. But India’s unemployment rate accounts for 3.5 per cent in 2018.
77 per cent of employment in India still remains under the category of “Vulnerable Employment”. Vulnerable employment includes the self-employed or those working in family-run establishments. Such people are less likely to have formal work arrangements, and therefore more likely to lack decent working conditions and adequate social security.
One of the major reasons for this gap between industry and academia has made it difficult for many students to find employment after graduation and for industries to find suitable personnel. Sometimes, even if a student is good academically, he may lack the interview skills; making it difficult for him/her to get the desired job.
Therefore to address this issue, one of India’s leading education and knowledge services provider, CL Educate Limited (CL) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with EvueMe Selection bot. They will be helping students & professionals to prepare for various kinds of interviews.
CL Educate Ltd in a strategic partnership with EvueMe Selection Bot will be launching a new Mock Interview Product named "iGuru".
Up-Skilling the Students
In today’s competitive era, mobility & constant up-skilling is important for professionals to be ahead of the curve. However, being skilled alone doesn't prepare candidates for the various angles from which recruiters evaluate prospects. The soft skill of presenting oneself as the ideal candidate for the course or job becomes so very important.
The MoU signed is aiming at helping students & professionals to prepare for various kinds of interviews for getting jobs or admission to study higher education courses.
Gopala Krishnan Rengan, President - Marketing & Alliances, Career Launcher said, "Through our strategic partnership with EvueMe, we intend to offer career support to students & professionals, so that they can confidently present their candidature. And even if there are any gaps in their knowledge or presentation skills, they can use our industry-expert panel members to iron out the same and achieve their career dreams."
Interviewer on Demand
Under this MoU, cutting-edge technology will be used to simplify the entire interview preparation process, enabling students and professionals to take mock interviews from the comfort of their premises using their own devices, at their own convenient time, with an "Interviewer on Demand". This makes the interviewing process simple, user-friendly & utilitarian.
