Digital and technology disruption in the IT industry has created and will continue to create millions of job opportunities for freshers. The reducing shelf life of skills has become an alarming sign that working professionals need to upgrade their skills at intervals shorter than ever. This gives freshers an added advantage over professionals as they don’t have to unlearn an existing skill and learn a newer skill. Recruiters today prefer working with candidates who have the requisite IT skills, adept work ethics, time and team management, communication skills and adaptability, and the lack thereof has become a strategic concern. Modern enterprises also prefer hiring freshers due to the fact that they can be employed at a lower CTC and they show a higher level of learning agility. But to attain that level of assurance freshers need to have the relevant skills and hands-on experience of technologies companies hire for.
