Finding the Secrets of Inspiration and Success

Getting a degree and getting a job is not success. Success is achieving your dreams and it is a failure to be happy with anything less. However, your dreams must be practical and actionable. Most people in this world are underachieved, Underemployedm and Unemployed who are degree holders. In contrast, less educated people in this world achieve much more than expected. Try to research on Google about it and you will know that only vision, determination, focus, smart and hard work, and guidance from an able Mentor are the major factors that will contribute to your real success. 

How Can You Succeed?

For the past 2 decades, the trend across the world has been the same and the rule of the job market is employability skills are the primary need, and the degree, marks, and grades are secondary. However, all the stakeholders in higher education had failed to understand the fact and in another way, they were unable to figure out what to do and so they ignored to suffer.

 

Universities, students, graduates, employers, higher education career development professionals, and educators all remained blind and deaf but not dumb about it because every stakeholder in higher education in all the countries kept on talking a lot, thousands of conferences, workshops, seminars, webinars were organized in every country, and skills development bodies were set up spending over a trillion of dollars to improve the employability skills of graduates but results were negatives.

These initiatives only improved some basic soft skills like oratory skills among many students and developed overconfidence among a segment of students considering they have acquired the employability skills but a larger chunk of graduates in every country remained underemployed or unemployed. Millions of education loans taken by the students from the banks in their respective countries are remaining unpaid and for those who invested in higher education from their own pockets, the ROI was negative.

 

20 years back, 25% of the graduates were employable and 75% were unemployable or untrainable but after 20 years of efforts to impart employability by spending trillions of dollars it was found that only 7% of the graduates are employable with 92% of the graduates are unemployable or untrainable.

But why it is so? The problem is simple but the answer is very complex so to explain it in simple words for all to understand let us explain it in brief. The foundation of any such training and improvement initiative must begin with the development of the right attitude which was totally absent in all these skill development programs. The curriculum was developed by people who had little or no idea about the skill gap, needs, and what can bridge those gaps. The instructors who were assigned to train the learners did not possess those skills so it was another theory lecture followed by note-taking but no real engagement from either of the parties. Since these projects had massive financial involvements in every country, the corruption mechanism was overactive by involving below-average trainers keeping the high-quality coaches, trainers, and mentors away. Universities, students, and parents never bothered to take employability seriously so they did millions for degrees but refused to spend a few thousand for developing the most important skill sets Employability and Life skills.


We urge you not to make the same mistake done by millions and during the present global economic meltdown in a post-Covid challenging period when getting a job had become tougher than ever before must opt for mastering the Employability and Life skills, For advice and assistance contact:
