Business students face a daunting task in India: getting hired.
This is the biggest hurdle they face.
For years, they’ve been the ones who are left out in the cold when it comes to hiring a new employee.
They’ve been told to be ready to hire a new worker in six months.
That’s not happening in the current economy, said Murali Rana, the founder of the Business Students India Network.
They have been told, “You’ll get the job within a week.”
And when that happens, you don’t even have time to look at the resume, he said.
That is the first thing that you see.
The second is you get a job interview that is more than two weeks late.
And then you have to wait for a couple of weeks to get a phone call from the recruiter.
And if you get rejected, you have no choice but to look for another job.
And that is the big challenge.
What to do about it?
So, the question is, how can we make this job search a bit more competitive?
One thing we can do is encourage students to think about their own strengths and weaknesses.
They are a very diverse group, said Rana.
So they can have different perspectives.
For instance, we know from the World Economic Forum that the majority of Indians are in middle-income brackets, so the biggest difference is they’re not working for large companies like Walmart, Target, Wal-Mart.
They’re working for small companies, they are in the informal sector, they’re working at home, they work in low-wage jobs, Rana said.
The second thing we have to do is get students involved in their own business.
This will be the first step.
But that is really the big issue.
So, students should be aware of the difference between what you need to do to get the position you want and what you want to do.
We need to make sure we give them the opportunity to work at the place they want to work.
And students should have the opportunity and support to take that path.
This process can take a while.
It takes time to learn the business, but when you do, you’ll have a better job.
For students, that means getting a better understanding of the work they need to be doing and being able to put together a business plan and develop it.
That will be a big boost.
For now, they can be happy with their job, but what will happen after they leave school?
We want to thank all the students who have made the journey to the US.
We would love to continue the conversation and encourage others to come and continue to develop their business.
