Hands-on program to make the participants Internship/Job ready in 3 months
If I look around in my circle everyone is hiring but they keep complaining that they are not getting good candidates. On the other hand, if you look at the profiles on LinkedIN, Job sites etc we’ll find a lot of buzzwords in the CVs and social media posts but if you just ask fundamental questions, we see the real depth 😊 . This is true for more than 90% of the cases.
If I look at it from a job seeker’s point of view, he/she just wants to stand out by mentioning those buzzwords and get an interview call. But they don’t realise that by doing this they are wasting time and efforts of many people, which brings a lot of frustrations on the other side. To avoid such frustrations to the recruiting companies, we now have many companies to help funnel candidates via coding challenges, hackathons etc. So unless someone is good or takes a leap to learn the required skills, nothing happens.
In theory whom-so-ever is passing out from the college should have the required skills but definitely they are missing in most of the cases.
But is it good to blame the candidates for not being job ready?
I would say both YES and NO. YES because the internet now gives a level playing field to everyone, so everythingis possible and we have seen some great examples. I would say NO for the following reasons :-
- The internet is very vast and navigating it becomes a challenge by itself. Information overload.
- In most cases the faculty in the college is not upto date with the market demand. Good faculty tends to leave the college for better opportunities.
- Lack of guidance and peer learning.
- Lack of context and hands-on setup to try things easily.
By not being job ready after college there is a lot of pressure on students and their families. After that the only option left is to get a job somehow and that’s when most students make a decision in haste by joining a not so good program or job that’s come by, without weighing the pros and cons. Only after few a years they realize that their decision was not great but now they are stuck.
With the aim to fix the above problems, we are taking our first step to launch this program – CY’s Cloud Engineer Bootcamp tomake candidates Internship and/or Job ready in 3 months in the Cloud Native domain. The candidate needs to do only one thing – Just follow what we are saying for the 3 months and keep learning.
For now we want to take upto 100 candidates in the next 3 months and make them ready for an internship/job. For now the program cost is just INR 1000 to bring accountability at both ends, while we run this pilot program. I know this is a bit ambitious but we believe in our teaching capabilities and the platform for automation. Following are more details about the program:-
