One of the key challenges repeatedly faced by corporate recruiters is that the theoretical knowledge imparted by colleges is no longer enough for an intensely connected global economy. One who does professional projects will go a long way in their job readiness.
With massive automation and Artificial Intelligence impacting the number of jobs on the one hand and, the lack of employable skills among graduates on the other, is making it difficult for companies to find the right talent.
