  Nacre's Inception  

Are we doing justice to the current employment scenario?

This led us to an embarkment on a long and successful journey since June, 2011. Since then this journey has taken us through a course of challenges and experiences. One of the major challenges we have faced was a tone of Irony from career aspirants, wondering that “nothing comes for free”. Another initial challenge that we faced was skeptical question from the companies as to what’s the catch? There wasn’t any catch. Since we started off with a social initiative, our focus wasn’t on particular business model. Our Sole vision has been to sincerely bridge the employment gap in the IT industry and the focus is on career aspirants with a strong will to make it big.

But their resources are limited. So we had a clear mission as to how to make this happen. Our goals were clear; we knew that we have to fill the gaping hole with the right skill set with respect to technical skills, communications skills, aptitude and most important their attitude. Learning is an ongoing and welcoming process at Nacre. It is this approach that has helped us to overcome many challenges. We went about creating a training module with trails and errors that resulted in a wholesome mentoring and nurturing programme. We have a systematic approach that imbibes the career aspirants with problem solving skills, technical skills, interpersonal skills, and exposure to a corporate environment.

  Why We Do   

Lack of guidelines amongst fresher’s and misconceptions with regards to industry requirements has led to a huge void in the employment scenario.

The current employment scenario is nearly appalling.

   Over 5.5 lakhs graduates pass out every year, and employability of these graduates in the IT industry is25% (in the year 2005 it was 24%).

  40% of the Graduates are still Unemployed even after 1 Year from graduation.

  26% of the Graduates are still unemployed even after 2 Years from graduation.

  15% of the Graduates are still unemployed even after 3 Years from graduation.

  India's 60 Billion Dollars IT industry is spending nearly 1 Billion Dollars annually in training hired graduates, due to the lack of employability skills in them; the reason being lack of awareness of these employability skills, and of its utmost importance as a means of getting the right job.

statistics

What we have been able to picture and arrive at a conclusion are:

With respect to fresher's

  Every fresher wants to kick start their career with an MNC and are failing to realize the opportunities which are available in SME’s.

  Salary expectations are too high.

  Lack in requisite skills and aiming to reach the skies.

With respect to small and medium enterprises

  Openings are many but they are really looking for skilled freshers. So the intake is less. It is time consuming as too many profiles have to be shortlisted for a few openings. The ratio is approximately 1 : 500.

  The numbers that are absorbed within the SME’s is less than 50%. I.e. less than 50% of the selected candidates actually take up the offers.

  They do not find the requisite talent. Dry run period is long if they take general fresher’s as the fresher’s would need nearly 3 – 6 months training which is unproductive in terms of company’s business.

  Realizing these short comings Nacre came into existence.
