Importance of OJT in Employability

Now colleges are coming up with the Internships or On Jobs Training (OJT) during the graduation/post graduation stage where students can apply the learning’s from academics in the real world. Through this they would be learning in a practical way and hence would be enhancing their skill sets which are needed for employability. Through OJT’s students would be getting Exposure (of the real world), Confidence (of facing real situations) and they would be doing Networking (making contacts) for themselves. OJT’s would also help them understand what are their real strengths and weaknesses.

Inlead situated in Gurgaon is one such institute which follows this pattern. They have divided their course module in four quarters. In quarter one student would be learning the basic concepts, depending on the course they would choose. Then in quarter two they would go for their OJT’s. Then in quarter three students will further enhance his academic knowledge and finally in quarter four they would either be having pre placements or the final paid internships.

This is in fact the USP of INLEAD Institute. Most Institutes provide Internship at the end of the course but INLEAD would be providing it two times just to provide an extra edge to its students in terms of Exposure and Confidence. INLEAD always motivates its students and makes them believe that they can lead their way through failures and achieves the desired success that they are looking for. It makes them ready to face real time tough situations in the Corporate World.
