DailyRounds

THE CHALLENGE :

The India Skills Report* 2021 clearly shows a staggering 54% of eligible youth are unemployable and another 15% of them are underemployed, with hardly any change in the hiring intent over the last two years. Apart from an impact by the Covid-19 pandemic, there is a clear lack of skills that the hiring market seeks. The environment where the rural students are born and brought up hampers their ability to stay confident among well-provided competitors and face challenging job requirements or general hardships in life. There is a lack of guidance, mentoring and systematic training to make the students ready to plunge into a work environment.

THE SOLUTION:

A workplace environment demands strong interpersonal skills, growth mindset, diligence, and perseverance apart from the basic skillsets like English Communication, Presentation Skills, Problem Solving Skills, Basic Computer skills. Timely intervention can facilitate exposure to the realities of the competitive employment sector and develop the necessary skills to acquire opportunities and sustain in the job market. Training in how to navigate a workplace environment can go a long way in anticipating and meeting the challenges and demands of a competitive and fast-paced environment

OUR MODEL
