12. Learning Out Come:

If we take the majority of Indian population (which is the middle class), we see that most students spend almost 20+ years of their life in “getting a basic degree”. These students invest millions of rupees in this education system, however most of them don't get high paying jobs. Statistics show that they are paid peanuts and they face the problem of underemployment. It's not so that we don't have high paying jobs - the truth is that most of the students don't have the soft skill (or employability skill) to crack these high paying positions. The fact that most students don't know is - The employer who is taking the interview is not looking for some crammed answers - he knows that you having a degree means you do have the knowledge about your subject. The interviewer’s objective for taking the interview is to assess your ability to work in a team, to check whether you are a cultural fit for the company, to see your communication skills, leadership skills, your ability to put yourself in other’s shoes, problem solving ability, attitude etc. If you want to get the best result of your education and your experience, then you must work rigorously on your employability skills. Because it is not a matter of just getting a job - it is the matter of getting the best job according to your candidature. After this module, you will become an expert in cracking any level of job interview according to your profile. This module will equip you with the A to Z of employability skills. Ultimately,  you will become so competent that you will be able to drive your interview according to your strengths or forte.
