“ We are just Studying 24/7 with Zero Knowledge and Non- Contemporary Industrial knowings about Industry related ethics". These are the words said by a Graduate of Engineering Discipline.
“ I can’t even co-relate the Technology advancements between what the curriculum taught me while in Graduation and while working in my core-sector after graduation” disappointedly uttered words from an Employee in Electrical and Electronics Sector.
Those words and sentences seem to be very much relatable to any Graduates or any Employee or Ex-employee from any Higher education background. They might be one of the reasons why the statistics on Engineering or Science graduates showing alarming rates of unemployment.
The Conscious Mind of a Student
Completing your Higher Secondary Schooling with a specific percentile from any recognized board is a mandatory point for any Aspirants to opt for his Higher Education in any discipline. Entrance Exams next, successful completion of studies and then the students start their journey to achieving the next big thing in their life i.e. “JOB HUNT”.
The conscious mind of a student will never ask a logical question which is always an Employer in any venture will always try to put perspective i.e “ Why there is no such professional councilling process for the individuals after graduation which will allow them to look for jobs in their core-discipline?"
Well, the people might underestimate the question and pass on without even dignifying it with an answer, but the answer is much more reasonable and justified. In the 21st Century, most of the Companies and Dignified Ventures should appreciate the vibrant process of enrolling an individual to "INTERNSHIP" first rather than working for an organization on a full-time basis.

One might get a generic answer in the social media platforms like Quora or Yahoo answers but for a graduate, the answer needs to be simple and quantified as “ To find a virtual platform where the bookish and practical knowledge will meet the Industry specifications, so the quorum required for being victorious will be completed.”
The other reason might be helpful to the fellow employees working in any sector and regretting opting the current career specific. Before getting the Id-card of any organization the individual will be knowing the job location and parking criteria for one’s vehicle, have zero-knowledge regarding the portfolio of the company.
