UnEmployed! Increase your Employment quotient

Every day new jobs are created and still we are facing the heat of unemployment. Have we ever thought of why ? Why are candidates not getting employed even after having a long list of degrees in their resume. Is there problem with the educational system ? Candidate ? or the company which is demanding too much ? Have we ever tried to answer these questions. Lets think about the problem and look at it from a different angle. Is the unemployed mass really employable ? If not what are the drawbacks ? We need to answer these questions or else the problem will keep on aggravating.

Now a days students go for professional degree to increase their employment quotient. They go for Engineering, MBA, MCA etc to get better jobs. They have got a specific mindset that once i complete my studies i will get a good job with a high paying salary. What they forget in the meanwhile is that “ They have to work hard and show their qualities to the interviewer to get the job”. Except a few handful of candidates rest of them don't perform up to the mark. Left over candidates blame their teachers, then placement department and at last the companies for being partial. They never look for fault within themselves. Why don't they genuinely ask themselves why they are left out ? And start working towards their weaknesses.

We have to start working towards our goal with full dedication and lots of hard work. Keep in mind “ There is no short cut to success, Success comes only to those who persevere for it”. When a candidate is inducted in to a professional degree they need to keep in mind that they have to do full justice with the educational program. For example take MBA. The mindset of a candidate is that while doing MBA they need to have more practical knowledge than theoretical knowledge and thus many skip classes. Colleges arrange for guest lectures after the completion of the regular classes but then very few attend because they get tired. These guest lectures are very important because the guest is a person with full practical knowledge. This will help in the long run. There are few things which should be thought when getting tired. Are we tired of eating ? Sleeping ? Or having fun ? Then Why tired of studying. A student has to address these things seriously when he has bunked classes and not participated in guest lectures and is out of several programs, how fit he is to get hired ? There are lots and lots of business magazines available in the college campus. Student should read them to have an idea of products, markets and the recent happenings in the business scenario. Inculcate the habit of reading and analyzing business situations and solving case studies because in the long run that will help them in solving their own business problems.

Study the whole syllabus rather than concentrating on guess questions just to pass the exam and get good marks. In the long run a good subject knowledge will be appreciated and not just good marks.

Companies are looking for fried chicken not raw chicken which needs to be cooked, roasted and the flavored to suit their need. A candidate has to understand this and become prepared to meet the current needs. Learn how to face interview questions and answer them without hesitation. Have an idea of company profile before going for interview. Have command over english language when seeking high paying jobs in multinationals. A candidate has to understand that their employ-ability and pay package solely depends on them. We don't need to complain but rather look at the problem and address the solutions. Improve subject knowledge, Communication skills, public speaking skills and leadership skills to get that desired job.
