Aspiring Minds, an employability assessment company released the National Employability Report 2011of Engineering Graduates. The report comprises of responses received from more than 55,000 final-year students, graduates of 2011. The report identifies patterns in employability across different regions and kinds of colleges, analyzing in detail the distribution of employability.
India has a sizable engineering talent pool; however, only 17 percent are fit to enter the IT industry. The National Employability Report is a detailed study on the employability situation, and can be a reference for industry and academia to understand and address the gaps and rectify the issues in the education system. According to Varun Aggarwal, co-founder and CEO, Aspiring Minds, “The report further reveals that the limitation is not just supply. There is an invisible talent pool, which lies unutilized due to the absence of a mechanized hiring and inclusion system. Not only is the contributing to inefficiency, it is potentially destroying higher education as an institution. There is an urgent need to address this disparity.”
