As the world is recovering from recent recession, the challenges in the job market remain. Interestingly, the challenges are not in the availability of positions alone; employers are finding it hard to fill the open positions with qualified people. While this may sound like a riddle, recent surveys and studies offer some insights on the issue. In a survey conducted by The Chronicle and American Public Media’s Marketplace, the hiring managers and executives expressed concern that colleges are falling short in preparing graduates with communications skills and decision making. Nearly half of the executives surveyed said that they had trouble finding qualified college graduates to fill the positions. Thirty one percent of employers indicated that recent graduates are unprepared or very much unprepared for their job search. In another recent survey conducted by the staffing company Adecco, over 90% of senior executives feel that there is a gap in the skills of the U.S. workforce. They feel the gap is in soft skills (44%) such as, communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration as opposed to a gap in technical expertise (22%). It is interesting that the senior executives believe the skill gap has less to do with complacency on the part of American workers and more to do with the U.S. education system and costs associated with in-house training programs. The goal of American Universities, like those in any part of the world, is to impart information and knowledge in the subject areas of interest to the students. There may be some validity to the criticism that the educational institutions around the world have not adapted themselves to the global economy and the workforce needs in the cyber age.
The global economy requires skills like communication, negotiation, adaptive-thinking, and leadership. Kovvali Academy refers to these as ‘Critical Skills’, and considers them to be life skills. It is hard for the Universities to teach these skills because they focus on teaching subjects related to domain expertise and cannot spread the already thin resources in order to develop courses that teach critical skills. The corporate world likes to hire domain experts that are equipped with critical skills. Where do students go to acquire these skills? While there are numerous agencies offering online and in-person courses, Kovvali Academy fills the need for critical skills programs developed with an academic rigor to prepare the global workforce to meet the emerging needs of the corporate world. Kovvali Academy has developed several comprehensive programs in eLearning as well as in-person formats. Kovvali Academy offers training to meet the needs of individuals who are just gearing to enter the work force or those who had a break and are trying to re-enter the job stream. Kovvali Academy also has programs to meet the needs of institutions that are short of qualified faculty to teach specialized subjects like Biotechnology, Cancer Biology, Drug Discovery and Development, to name a few.
