Fresh Engineering graduates unemployment is increasing exponentially. Getting high marks does not ensure employment. They should be able to understand how an industry works, which is never taught in the College.
A crash programme should be evolved inviting senior experienced Engineers to take orientation classes to explain the industrial surroundings, how they work, and what inputs help them to enter those industries. Industries could be into mechanical, electrical, electronics, pharma, chemical, power, or process industries like fertilizers, sugar,cement, petroleum etc. I can undertake a project to conduct such classes.

Hello Mr Prasad,
If your research is going to be about unemployment it will be confined to freshers seeking out employment
if we leave out people with experience but remaining jobless at present for different reasons.
The interviewers while selecting look for merit,extra curricular activities, team working abilities and in general
anything that makes a candidature better than others. Exceptions do exist in the form of recommendations.
So those who do not get a job as Dhaarani rightly referred, lack in the requirements as seen above.

I think students in India depend completely on classroom training and donít make use of other opportunities to learn vital skills.
A lot can be learned through voluntary services in good NGO, local association, spiritual organization ..
These offers
- Free training ground to learn new skill
- Apply your current knowledge.
- Connect with people. You may find entrepreneur, industrialist or persons in good position who may help you getting job.
- Improve your listening skill, patience, communication skill. All are important in work force.
- More a person stays involved in work less time he will have to think negative. This increases chance of getting work.

Normally students want the jobs in large scale companies ,after their studies ( Specially Engineers and MBA ) meanwhile there are large number of Medium or small scale industries in India. If someone wants to show his/her skill then he /she can also join small firms but in the today's competitive environment no body wants to become a part of unit having 50 people .

i am an student
the first day of my MBA . many faculty askd the question why MBA many said that its my parents compulsion .so they dont even know the value of their studies.
the second thing is they are not exposed to the out side wrld all they know is books marks that's all. very few get to know about the other things
next is they are not to get job other than their interest. they say only finance nly that dis .
next is wen u ask a grup of childern (10th) in other country that wat are you going to become in future u ll get different out puts but here the ans will be engineer doctor ,MBA. ther the problem is so many doctors engineer MBA . when ther are 20,000 openings and there are the applications got is a lakh think what will happen. atleast let us not do this for our children let they do what they like because we have to do only what we know to become successful .

Hi,
Many companies recruit Graduate Engineers from Campus Interviews.
In some companies you are behind the schedule by 6 months as soon as you Join.
But most companies train these engineers.
Many companies call it Campus to Corporate.
Follow the training content of these companies you will have an idea.
According to me the candidate can be from any field that is engineering, Finance, HR or any other, the important thing is to understand the Business Process.
This is never taught in any institute.
You can study this it will be most value adding phenomenon.
Thanks & Regards,
Sudhir

I am glad to see so many responses to my suggestion that Engineering graduates should know how an industry works. Mr. Krsripathy must be rendering services to many Engineering graduates and they must have secured jobs. Considering the large number of engineers who are unemployed and also expecting another batch of engineers added every year, unless this issue is taken on top priority, it is not possible to find suitable solutions. Government should exercise its jurisdiction over providing jobs. Stopping more intake by not issuing fresh licenses to start Engineering colleges is a good step to alleviate the crisis. Employment opportunities are bound to generate in the coming years. Lots of investment in the core and infrastructure sectors, like petroleum, fertilizers, agriculture, industries, construction, rail and road ways should generate many jobs which can absorb quite a number of Engineers. The issue at the moment is to find ways to make them industry competent. I mean that when they enter the industry they should have knowledge on various departments like PPC, Operations, Maintenance, Industrial Engineering, Marketing, Quality, Prototype, Design, R&D, Tool design, Shipping, Servicing, etc and how they are interlinked with the procedures of interaction. They should also understand the various machines used, the drawings referred, material used, processing,operation layout, quality and procedures adopted, ISO 9000 & IS 140001, production schedule, production plan, labour control and so on. They should also be told about the important details they should collect in various departments, associating with workmen politely, observing the rules in the organisation, safety precautions, dress code, etc too.

Citi HR members can identify those who want to volunter in this programme and prepare a list of such experienced hands, highly matured and who have flair for training and they go in groups to various places to educate the unemployed engineering graduates. Some NGO should also back such initiatives taken. I am confident that a large number of Engineers can get employed. My request to such persons is to keep their options open and be prepared to relocate anywhere within India or abroad on securing employment.

Dear Prasaadu,
First of all, we have to revamp totally our educational system. There are different types of curriculum prevailing in this country. CBSE, Matric,State Board, etc etc.... See, each curriculum has different approaches. There should be one common curriculum throughout the country. And also, education system should keep on changing for the change in needs of the society (May be industry). I strongly feel that entreprunerism skill, safety skill, social awareness should also inculcated right from the school days itself.
There is often gap between universities, schools, and industries. This gap should be atleast narrowed if not eliminated. Village based, Agriculture based employment potential should be analysed and improved upon.
There are lot of reforms to be done in the total governing pattern of our country.
Regards,

From India, Mumbai
