NASSCOM says that in year 2010, 45% of training budget was spent only on new employees which cost USD 630 million. Average amount spend on training new employees was USD 4350 i.e. 40% of cost of an average engineering course!! This calls for increasing role of academia to participate in the success of the industry.

Industry in India is under acute pressure due to the following reasons:

  • Lack of trained manpower
  • Rising resource cost and attrition
  • Decreasing billing rates/revenue due to recession and competition
  • Changing technologies coupled with low reaction time
  • Rising cost of infrastructure

CareerMate address these areas of concern by providing cost effective solution which reduces time of deployment of trained resources with the help of experts coming from industry. The training programs of CareerMate are run by people coming from corporate background thus complementing the academic knowledge of a candidate in a better way.

Our approach has four major pillars

  • Mentoring by Industry Experts
  • Focus on Technical Certifications
  • Industry Simulation Programs
  • Balanced Delivery on Technical, Business and Behavioral Skills

The purpose of this course is to familiarize the delegates with various behaviour-based aspects needed to bring about positive changes in them in order to make them high quality professional. These sessions also make them familiar with the training/teaching methods. What differentiates these methods from other teaching and training approaches is an explicit recognition that teaching and training means changing behaviour. Thus, the focus is on measuring behaviour, tying these observations to what the trainer/teacher does, and using improvements in performance as the only evidence for judging if learning took place. Stated differently, if there's no change in behaviour, then no training or teaching took place.
