Degree holding youth cannot find Job

 

Degree holding youth cannot find Job

 

  • Young graduates are not industry-ready despite having degrees from prestigious colleges
  • A vast majority of graduates are virtually unemployable due to a skill-gap, according to a report by the FICCI and E&Y
  • Career Lift offers a Career Enhancer Kit for colleges/universities to help their students prepare for campus placements and acquire good jobs

 

In today’s competitive world, every young person has the ambition to pursue a degree from an elite college that will get them a respectable job. However, even at the best colleges and universities in the country, the coursework is outdated and does not suit as per industry requirements. Director of Career Lift Ed-Tech, Mr. Nitil Gupta says, “the courses designed in Colleges/Universitiesmiss out on teaching practical and technical skills that will not only help students land a job with top companies, but also help them in career progression. Therefore, despite investing money, time, and efforts, institutes are simply unable to produce graduates who will thrive in competitive job markets”. The latest Higher Education report published by FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) and Ernst &Young says that 93% of the MBA and 80% of the engineering graduates in India are unemployable because of the gap between what they are taught in college and industry requirements. It goes on to say that out of India’s six million graduates, a vast majority are not “industry-ready’ because of a skill-gap. Colleges/Universities need to focus more on technical and practical training rather than just granting degrees.

 

Career Lift, an Ed-Tech company, recognizes this problem and develops solutions for problems such as these in the education sector. Their products like E-Career Enhancer, M-Career Enhancer andStudy Material,arestrategically designed to help colleges and universities aid their students to excel during campus placements and acquire jobs that are best suited for them. E-Career Enhancer, an Online Platform takes the user through all the components of the placement process, like aptitude test practice, GD&PI preparation, current affairs and information about the companies. This product also comes with a complimentary Mobile Application, M-Career Enhancer.These set of products are very useful for institutes while enabling their students to ace the campus recruitment process with not just their degrees, but other value-added skills.

Transcript of Mr Pranesh Chaudhary- CEO and founder of ZunRoof https://www.zunroof.com/

Transcript of Mr Pranesh Chaudhary- CEO and founder of ZunRoof https://www.zunroof.com/

1. How much studies and efforts have you done for successfully working on this project
https://www.zunroof.com/ ZunRoof’s all-IIT founding team has a great mix of skill sets and 25 years+ of combined experience from having worked across the world in sectors as varied as Financial Services to Construction Management to Power Products’ R&D. With this background, we started developing our apps and hardware’s as early as Q1 2016. At the same time, we started talking to residential and SME roof owners to understand the electricity-related issues they were facing.
Having left our cushy corporate and consulting jobs, we prepared for close to 6 months on explainer videos, marketing materials as well as on the tech that differentiates our solar installations. We also went ahead and signed vendors and procurement partners in this time so we could keep our costs down and pass on the engineering benefits to our clients.

2. What would be your plan of action and strategic vision for https://www.zunroof.com/ Zunroof ?
Our apps can be divided into design and delivery verticals – the over-riding aim is to minimise the entire “going solar” process to a few clicks for the residential and SME rooftop owners. App provides you a detailed analysis of your electricity bill, shows you how your roof will look post solar installation. The app helps our engineers perform shadow analysis of your roof to figure out the best area on your roof to put solar.
Then, the app provides the clients all the delivery updates when their system is getting delivered. Another very important part of the app starts post-installation when it provides you notifications and charts of solar production. It becomes your investment dashboard for solar.
3. Could you talk about some events that influenced you to become what you are today?
We envision ZunRoof https://www.zunroof.com/ to be the single largest clean-tech brand for consumers – “any issue that you have related to energy or electricity, we will solve it”. We have started by utilising un-used roofs for putting solar and as we understand more and more pain points for the consumers, will keep adding software and hardware solutions for them

4. What will give you a sense of fulfillment in your professional life?
Born and having lived in a small town of Bihar till my teenage days with very limited means, two aspects of our lives were crystal clear to me – one, make your own way in the world (hence entrepreneurship) and two, whenever electricity came back after hours, everyone got happy, so electricity/energy is an important dimension in our lives (hence solving electricity issues).
Hence, when Sushant (my friend for 10+ years and IIT Kharagpur batchmate with huge solar and product dev experience) and I started putting our entrepreneurial plans on paper, we zeroed on this. We need to make the world a better place while we are here and we need leave the world in an even better state than we found it – ZunRoof https://www.zunroof.com/ allows us to do both as every kW of our installation is equivalent to planting 154 trees

5. Now a days many applications are coming in market, how different is ZunRoof https://www.zunroof.com/ from those.
When I feel I am contributing net positive value to anything I am doing in professional capacity (it could be a product dev sprint, a business deal, it could be a client on-boarding thing or an appraisal of a colleague), I feel happy and sleep nicely in the night. When I am able to promote any of our colleagues to the next level that gives me a sense of satisfaction too of having witnessed and been a small part of someone else’s professional accomplishment.

See, I am restless for success 24/7 but I love this journey we are on with my team – every small milestone makes me refreshed and more focused

6. What was in your mind when you developed this app
Oh, like chalk and cheese – there is no app in the solar segment, even at 10% of the technical nous and finesse we have in our app. VR, Image processing, analytics, IOT – none of these are buzzwords for us, these are actual cutting-edge tech solutions we have applied in our app. Our operations is completely automated too with our internal apps which has meant we have been able to scale with speed with minimal leakage risk

7. Do you think your project will get success
Solving solar rooftop puzzle for all residential and SME clients, automating the end-to-end client experience in a few clicks.

8. How many team members are there who all are working on this project in both back end and front end?
100% – we are growing at an insane speed and there is a whole world of untapped rooftops and consumers with electricity-woes that need solving
9. Till now from which region you are getting maximum response
We are scaling like crazy and from a 20-member team at the beginning of 2018, we are already 70+ folks, spread across different functions. Delhi NCR is where we started and are clearly the market leaders in every city of the region. Within 4-6 months, we expect to say the same for 7+ states in India

Does your school comply with CBSC Mandates?

Does your school comply with CBSC Mandates?

1. CBSE mandates that all affiliated schools should maintain websites which contain details of affiliation, student enrollment, management, etc.
2. Apart from these requirements, educational institutes must have a website to have an online presence and digital influence, and to attract prospective students.
3. Career Lift, an Ed-Tech company, helping institutes meet both these objectives by furnishing them with a website which has been developed by education experts.

According to CBSE circular03/10 October 18, 2010 the Central Board of Secondary Education requires all schools affiliated with it to have comprehensive and updated websites. The website should cover extensive details such as the affiliation status of the school, details of infrastructure and amenities offered by the school, the names and designations of teachers, their qualifications, student enrollment and student-teacher ratio, details about the school’s management, land area, academic session, vacation period etc.CBSE has also stipulated that the website should be updated by 15th September every year. Creating and maintaining such a comprehensive website can be a cumbersome task.

However, educational institutes should have a website not only because of this CBSE mandate but because in today’s day and age, having an impactful presence online is very important, especially to highlight their brand and attract students. When a parent looks for the best education for their child, they invariably turn to the Internet for reliable information. If your school has an attractive website, it will definitely capture the attention of prospective students and their parents.

Many schools are unable to fulfill this CBSE requirement as web-development may not be their forte or they might be unaware of all the important components of a school website. Career Lift, an ed-tech company, can help institutes abide by this CBSE norm by giving them a fully-developed, extensive and modifiable website. Education experts, like those at Career Lift, understand the needs of educational institutes and the stipulations of CBSE alike, and so they are the best professionals to handle all your technological and web-development concerns. Nitil Gupta, Founder of Career Lift says, “We use the latest technology to build an appealing website with an optimum design. Moreover, our clients have the option to easily modify, customize or update the website on their own. Our product is cost-effective and time-efficient for educational institutes, especially since we provide the website content-ready.”

Saubhagya Yojana- Failure in Implementation

Saubhagya Yojana- Failure in Implementation
The Modi Government initiative- Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana also known as Saubhagya Yojana is lost somewhere due to delay in government working and scams. Central government was to allot funds to every state for the successful implementation of this scheme.
Under this scheme the states and central government run states were to complete the work of installation by 31st December 2018 to make electricity available in every household. For the completion of which every state has invited tenders from the contractors according to the needs. With regard to this an issue has come to light about Madhya Pradesh government. MPEB has not followed the guidelines of Central Vigilance Committee (CVC) which was prepared by M. Vitthal for every government tender. Not following the Rule 25.2 (Price Quotation in Tender) of Madhya Pradesh Warehouse Purchase Rules and Service Acquisition Rules 2015, dated 28/07/2015, number: F 6-14/2012/A-11 which was presented by Mohammad Suleman, Chief Secretary, Madhya Pradesh Government, Commerce, Industry and Employment Department, contains clear instructions regarding purchase of equipments from local producers is causing the delay in this scheme. The work of purchase is being given to producers of other states instead of the local producers. This arises many questions like why were the orders not given when even after releasing the tender? Is the state government not serious towards the welfare of local producers? When local producers are given priority in other states why not in Madhya Pradesh?

Central Government declared this scheme in September last year to make electricity available to 45 lakh households under Saubhagya Yojana. Madhya Pradesh government released tenders for this scheme but it is being jeopardized due to personal interests and because of which governmental instructions are being violated. Madhya Pradesh Electricity Company is made the nodal agency for tenders of Transformer Cable Conductor of around 950 to 1000 crore but question arises that how effectively this procedure is being followed there.
Very small percentage of the material given in the tender was purchased from the local producers; rest was purchased from the producers of other states. Following facts are the proof of this. Tenders for PVC cable were invited but not purchased, 60 percent of AB cable was purchased out of which only 2 percent was taken from state government, only half of the required distribution transformer was purchased out of which only 10 percent came to state government’s account, rest 90 percent was purchased from someone else. Same is the case with AAAC conductors and energy motors. The necessary supply and quantity for the material was decided and afterwards almost less than half of it was accepted for this scheme and what was accepted the very little of it was purchased from the local producers of Madhya Pradesh. This arises many questions.
If required quantity of material for tender was decided why later on it was decreased?
Even if it was decreased it was almost 50 percent so was it for some personal profit?
Even after accepting the tenders only small part of it was given to state government, why the rest of it was purchased from outside the state?
Is the state government not interested in increasing its revenue? Is the state government not concerned about the interest of local producers? Is the personal interest of officers behind all this?
