Helping freshers step into their professional lives
With the emergence of private sectors in India, the Indian youths have been given extensive opportunities with respect to employment. Despite such opportunities, India is witnessing an immense number of educated and qualified people with no job in hand. Recent graduates and freshers are the ones who are facing several challenges and difficulties during their job hunts. These difficulties and challenges are not ordinary and natural. These are developed in the last couple of years due to the change in the requirements of industries.
Companies have no interest in the degree of the individual. All they are interested in is the skills possessed by the individual. It is the nature of the enterprises to choose and employ skilled and talented candidates in the organization from the very first day. Companies never ignore the skills of the graduates but the degree they hold. They are well aware of the fact that most of the college education these days is not enough to help the freshers perform their roles in the company. Moreover, most freshers are clueless and have no idea about the skills which industries seek. Each individual possesses a unique set of skills, matching some particular requirements of different corporations. Each candidate is made for some particular industry and is perfect for them. The only problem is that these candidates have no idea and no assistance in finding the perfect company in accordance with their set of skills and step into their professional life with a bang! Since the joining of freshers into their respective workplaces just after their academic environments, quite usually, the transition is not at all convenient. The lack of awareness with respect to the working etiquettes, the non-realistic and enormous expectations regarding the roles of the freshers, lack of the exposure of the individual to an environment with a lot of collaboration, the inefficiency in meeting deadlines and delivering results in time, there are many more reasons because of which a numerous amount of freshers find it difficult to adapt and live up to the expectations and fulfil the demands of their workplaces.
50% of the surveyed recruiters conveyed that young joinees often struggle with the team dynamics. 44% of them reported that freshers are unable to meet the requirements and the work deadlines. Nearly 23% of them said freshers had inflated opinions and doubts regarding their own capabilities. Freshers often get caught up in the confusion that which company is better for them to start their first job and without the proper assistance and guidance, end up choosing the wrong job and start getting depressed and unhappy with their performance as that job was not meant for them.
