Reality Behind Fresher to Employability GAPS


We hire a lot of fresher at Cogzidel Groups and we put a lot of efforts on Training them… These days we work more on their Personality, Soft-Skills and Inter-Personal Skills than on their core competency…

The reason for this is the education system in the country and the attitude behind institute owners… Colleges are more business oriented than working on student skills… Institutions are reluctant on hiring skilled teachers and investing on proper infrastructure…

Last month when we went for a campus drive… Correspondent of the college asked for feedback on their student skills… We said they were very low on confidence because of the limitations on communication, soft skills etc…

Correspondent immediately asked for ways to improve things and we immediately gave our recommendation… Particularly we asked them to tie-up with a finishing school…

He immediately asked if that will cost him? When we said it will… He said what they are offering in college is more than enough… This experience showed opened an ugly truth and we decided it is waste of time to work with colleges…

After that incident we have stared to tweak our training process… These days we work on the gaps and we do more of finishing school training initially and then move to training on core competency…
