Skill Development & Career Opportunities
Pune, Maharashtra -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/09/2018 --Studies conducted by major universities and business organizations indicate that less than 10% of job failures are due the lack of technical aspects of the job. And this means that more than 90% of such failures are due to lack of understanding of one's self, lack of understanding of others and the lack of motivation (in short lack of life skills and people skills). Soft skills and confidence are very important attributes in being successful.
Times & Trends Academy conducted a recent 'Skill Development & Career Opportunities' workshop recently for finance and accounts students from TTA. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Wasim Sharif, Assistant Manager – Human Resource at WNS, and was attended by students, faculties & Mr. Amit Agrawal, Founder & Chairman – Times and Trends Academy. Mr. Wasim gave insights on various career opportunities in the finance & accounts industry.
Mr. Amit Agrawal said, "Skill development is crucial for economic growth and social development. The demographic transition of India makes it important to ensure employment opportunities for more than 15 million-plus youths entering working age annually. And therefore it becomes binding on us to conduct seminars & workshops for students that help them understand the market scenario better and acquire the necessary and relevant skillsets."
Mr. Wasim listed many technical skills in finance & accounting domain that MNCs are looking in the candidates when they are recruiting. And without those skillsets, he suggested that it would be very difficult to enter multi-national companies. As human resource professional, he also emphasized on the fact that freshers seeking a job in this industry must also have good communication skills to grab the job opportunities.
