Skill, reskill and upskill – that’s what is required to remain relevant in this fast changing job market, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in July 2020.
With various job functions getting modified, even completely removed as a result of the Covid-19 impact, constantly UPSKILLING is the answer particularly when you are a job seeker in the present employment market.
You have to understand that the way life is changing, the time has arrived when you have to have a lifelong learning approach.
It’s not industry 2.0, where you did a four year course and ended up with that engineering degree for the rest of your life. It’s going to be industry 4.0, which means changes are coming frequently. You need to keep upgrading yourself.
And although the employers already looked for constant learning attitude in their prospective employees, the pandemic has significantly boosted the importance of upskilling.
Employers are trying to understand and appreciate that employees must have a learning approach to life.
In a CII talk, a senior official from TCS mentioned that one interview question he always asks is – What are the new things you have learned in last six months? So employers are now increasingly trying to look and see that whether you have a learning approach to life and career.
Do you really care to pick up new skills on the way? And these things will begin to matter more.
What skill set should freshers develop now?
First and foremost skill that freshers must learn is how you communicate and interact with people. Effective communication skills very importantly rank at the top of skillsets of all the freshers. And there are different ways in which you communicate in a college and in a professional setup. Collaborative learning is another aspect. Working in a silo is going away and teamwork is getting to be the new norm.
The Importance of Vocational Skills in the changed scenario:
The way the new education policy has been created, vocational education will get further built into the education system, in a way that while you are learning things which are relevant for creating the foundation of society, and you are also picking up short courses that are immediately relevant to a particular sector of the economy.
In continuation of this CAD/CAM/CAE and PPM Concepts will add another feather in your career irrespective of your specialized fields like Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Architecture Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Management and helps a user in coming up with innovative and competent concepts using a computer as an aid in the field of Engineering, Design, Manufacturing, and Project Planning and Management.
CAD/CAM/CAE and PPM Concepts serves the purpose of conveying your ideas and imagination in a lot of instances throughout your life. So investing a little time in mastering these below listed tools in your field of specialisation, you will reap benefits all your life.
CAM tools- (NX CAM, 3D Printing Rapid prototyping, SolidCAM)
CAE Tools- (ANSYS, Hypermesh, CATIA Kinematics, SolidWorks Simulation, SolidWorks Motion, STAAD Pro, ETABS, Quantity Take Off, ANSYS Civil FEM)
PPM Concepts tools- (Microsoft Project and PRIMAVERA)
CAD/CAM/CAE and PPM Concepts are life skills.
It is to be emphasized that you should reskill/ upskill yourself in your chosen area.
So that it’s easy for you to go to the employers and tell them that you have learned something which is relevant to them, and they will find that to be of great practical value.
In this context, it is to be mentioned that offerings of CAD Crew Technologies have been diligently developed keeping in view the market trends. The way we make these courses are in complete sync with the industry.
