We are living in exciting times and with the advent of the digital economy, there has been a widespread democratization of education.
Anybody having a Computer/Mobile with an Internet connection can hook into the internet, search for knowledge, apply in their work and can change their life for better. Millions of life have changed for good.
Essentially flip side of Internet for people seeking knowledge through this medium are faced with Information overload. There are umpteen resources, millions of websites, blogs, articles on any topic we can imagine and the internet being an open playfield, there are good and bad apples and it’s difficult to vet these resources.
Millions of engineers are churned out from Universities and Colleges every year and with many finding it hard to get jobs after graduation, they fall prey to cunning designs of institutes and job agencies promising them jobs once they complete an IT course or perhaps a Software Testing course. But the hard reality is most of these students who have taken these courses are not fit for the industry because they don’t have the latest industry relevant and practical skills needed for the current challenging work environment.
Having sat on the other side of the Interview panel, I understand the pain these engineers are going through fresh out from the college carrying flashy graduate degrees and multiple certificates from institutes and some of them even have taken up online courses.
I felt deeply about it and wanted to do something which I believe can impact thousands of lives. This is when QaClick Academy was born.
