Competition is so fierce that each and everyone is trying for high honours as the stakes are very high. Take for example sports, art, culture, business and the office job all work for excellence and thereby wish to achieve laurels in one way or the other. The lesson is: competition in today’s world is so fierce, that it is important to stay ahead of other, even by just a couple of steps. We wish to remember and curtail our production expenditure and give the best quality always, you will be miles ahead as compared to so many others in this world.
Today’s job competition is so fierce that High School students are getting internships. The truth is that even they are today gaining real-life work experience more aggressively than most college goers did at their age. Management education prepares students to work in teams, collaborate across cultures and increase efficiency with effectiveness. In the current economic slowdown, management institutes must offer value added courses beyond the normal management curriculum. To work in a global market, students need to learn a foreign language at least. In the present economic scenario, organizations prefer hiring employees who can contribute to the business without having to spend much time on training them. Management education plays a very important role in equipping undergraduates through functional expertise and value based learning.
There is huge competition for the few available posts and it is difficult to find high-paying ones. With the ultimate fierce competition there will be more job seekers and the squeeze will go on for some more time. How to overcome the situation which is going from bad to worse? It is the survival of the fittest. Candidates must initially accept temporary job offers and gain vital experience. No company will let go of competent people. Youth must make use of the time to upgrade their knowledge and try for better job opportunities. It is true that Knowledge is Power.
In the coming months, many employers around in India will make do with the people they have, finding ways to contain costs and being very cautious about appointing new entrants. Temporary employment may gain prominence as companies might hire less permanent staff for cutting cost. Candidates must add one new competency every year and step up the level of proficiency in the existing scenario.
Better to make a chart and try to get best training available to upgrade your knowledge. One has to measure the extent that one has developed on the competency achieved by getting proper feedback periodically from close quarters. It is indeed survival of the fittest.
