India’s demographic bulge – the hundreds of millions of young people who will flood its job markets in the next decade – is in danger of sliding into a lopsided paunch that will weigh the nation down and crimp its gross domestic product. The unemployment rate for youngsters hints that youngsters are facing difficulties in getting jobs. Unemployment across India has brewed discontent and destructive politics. According to the International Monetary Fund, India’s young adults can contribute as much as two percentage points each year to it’s per capita growth for the next 20 years.

Lack of Talent hits Growth, Competitiveness
Organizations in India and around the world are finding themselves ill-equipped to compete in the 21 st century economy. The reason: too many workers lack the right skills to help their employers grow and succeed.
The global, knowledge-based economy places an ever-growing premium on the talent, creativity and efficiency of the workforce, business leaders talk of a widening gap between the skills their organizations need to grow and the current capabilities of their employees.
It’s not just organizations and industries that are suffering the consequences of the “skill-gap”. Communities, states, regions and entire nations pay a heavy price when businesses cannot find or equip employees with the right skills for critical jobs. Even in India and China, widely perceived as unstoppable engines of economic growth, a lack of worker skills often is cited as a major obstacle to business success.
A growing number of employers in India are worried about the growing mismatch between the skills needed for the jobs they have on offer, and skills potential employees actually have. A survey by job site Careerbuilder.com found around 78 per cent of employers saying they were concerned with the growing skills gap in India. Most —57 per cent — said they have open positions for which they cannot find qualified candidates.
Training at corporate level is important and companies are leaving aside huge chunks of their budget for training but the key lies with the educational institutes to include soft skills training more seriously. They need to design effective training modules which are a part of the curriculum and give equal weight to these skills when evaluating students passing out.
We at Project Yuva will continuously work with the student community through a series of workshops/webinars/training sessions, to keep them constantly upgraded and updated on industry trends, in-demand skills and planning their career journey.
