Students who transition from campus to corporate have a big challenge to adapt to change, their travel from semester, exams, assignments to deadlines, client meetings and team work can be a tough bridge to cross. This can be made easy with proper training. Student life is quite carefree compared to the ones lived by professionals – the lifestyle, the mindset, the laid back days and still make it to doing well in exams is not very tough. Professors focus on enhancing the learning quotient and improvement of subject matter understanding to evaluate them for their overall implementation and learning ability to a certain amount.
But in an organizational setting, one is expected to be punctual, attend meetings, make decisions, convince clients, and cooperate with team so as to bring in deliverables on time within acceptable quality. Managers at work focus on deliverables and meeting of deadlines with use of derived and existing knowledge.
The transition from campus to corporate will need more attention as it requires a lot of planning. Even if one has managed to score high grades throughout one’s academic career, once one steps into the world of technology, the ability to practically deploy is what matters and not the grades on certificates and papers. This is the gap between campuses and corporate that needs to be bridged.
This change will need an understanding of realities in a corporate environment like the importance of learning as a continuous exercise during one’s career, attitude, ownership, creativity, problem solving skills, motivation to overcome interference and self confidence. Regardless of where one comes from, all freshers are lined up in a common starting point and growth depends on skill, attitude and performance. For the corporate, an individual who is internally motivated and skilled will take the team/organization to greater heights.
