Recently on CNBC’s Consumer Adda show, Vipin Bhatt discussed the skills gap in Indian graduates, citing the ‘India’s Graduate Skill Index: 2023’ report, revealing that just 45% of job-seeking graduates are job-ready. Sonica Aron, CEO of Marching Sheep, joined the show to explore solutions for this gap.
Sonica’s emphasis on seizing control over one’s career trajectory by self-directed career development and embracing internships as a bridge from theory to practice is a beacon of guidance. She also goes on to talk about the challenges that still remain to be addressed and hopes that the dialogue between the media, industry experts, and graduates serves as a rallying call to cultivate adaptable skills and empower the future workforce to thrive amidst evolving market dynamics.
