Mumbai: TCS iON, a strategic unit of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, announced a free, 15 day self-paced digital certification program called Career Edge, to sharpen career skills of college going students and professionals during this period of global lockdown.
The ongoing pandemic is likely to have a far reaching impact on the global work force. The job market is going to be more competitive than ever before and youth will have to put their best foot forward to win in the job market. However, if used smartly, this period can be a self-transformational stage for them.
TCS iON Career Edge is a free two weeks online digital program followed by an online digital assessment and certification. The program is offered on the TCS iON Digital Learning Hub platform. This program is specially designed for college students/working professionals globally to enhance their career skills by helping them effectively utilise the time at hand during this lockdown. The program consists of nano videos, case studies and assessments that will help the learners to understand and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Career Edge also carries useful recorded webinars hosted by TCSers to make it interesting and practical. The program can be accessed anywhere, anytime on any device – cellphones, laptops, desktops and tablets.
This is the second initiative by TCS iON during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Its earlier offering TCS iON Digital Glass Room is a virtual learning platform, offered free of cost to educational institutions across the world. Using this, educators and students can connect in a safe, secure virtual environment, moving lessons from classrooms to interactive digital glass rooms.
In these unprecedented times response has to be quick and effective – leading from the crisis of today to the next normal that will emerge after the pandemic. At such times, when one cannot predict the future, TCS iON is reaching out to all segments of the society to prepare them for the new normal. While TCS iON Digital Glass Room will reach out to schools and colleges, Career Edge is for the youth in colleges to enhance their career skills and make them future ready.
The offering is live starting 1st April, 2020, on https://learning.tcsionhub.in/courses/career-edge/ and is available free of cost for everyone across the globe.
