For a very long time, people in our country have had the notion that a “good degree” leads to a “good job”. Unfortunately, neither much attention has been paid nor much stress has been laid on the importance of acquiring and learning new or rather relevant skills that one needs to bag a job. The misconception of a “degree” being the ultimate parameter of qualifying for a job leaves many young talents in distress, as it keeps them from getting a job they like, or deserve. Who is to blame here? Well, primarily the lack of a relevant skillset.
Talking specifically of the world of Electric Vehicles (EV), it was only until recently that people were introduced to the term “Upskilling”. Reason being, individuals realized that making a career in the EV sector needed a complete skillset, and not just a degree. Upskilling refers to gaining a new or polishing an already existing skill, aiming to specialize in the respective area of knowledge. It is a dynamic process and almost never comes to an end. After the industrial revolution, there are new developments happening in the world every day, which makes the “yesterday’s us” outdated for tomorrow’s world.
Autobot India’s Employability Improvement Program, as the name suggests, aims at making individuals from an engineering background ready for the needs of tomorrow, helping them acquire jobs that in the EV sector by upskilling them for the same. This first-of-its-kind and unique program developed by experts after a year of meticulous efforts are designed specifically for working professionals in the automobile sector who wish to switch to EV, or job seekers who have graduated with an engineering degree. The program aims at making individuals passionate about EV more employable and adequately skilled for the industry.
With the ever-rising needs and demands of a relevant skillset in the job market, it is only fair for individuals to lay as much stress on getting a degree as on constantly updating their skills. Thankfully, institutes have realized the need for this, and are taking efforts to ensure best for graduates or job seekers, by upskilling them in order to help them realize their full potential.
