University to Job - Prototypes

  1. 1. From University to Job Prototypes for DTAL Abby Singh
  2. 2. First Prototype Bridge Program – Independent Institute
  3. 3. University to Corporate Bridge Program  (i) Practical -> Independent Institute with University to Corporate Bridge Program:  An independent institution identifies the gaps in a university student's technical, communication and behavioral skills towards job readiness.Thereafter, it suggests courses for the student to take up and be employable. The University, Corporate Houses and Students are all stakeholders in ensuring the smooth transition.
  4. 4. Process Model – Bridge Program Fresh University Graduate seeking Job, registers with the Institute and identifies a dream job via counseling Institute evaluates job- readiness for the graduate via skill centric interviews, psychometric analysis and written examinations Institute provides a readiness index and skill gap analysis report recommends a set of courses to undertake Institute coaches and assists the graduate in ramping up within a stipulated timeframe Once the bridge program is complete, the institute assists in job search and provides references for job interviews Institute mentors the graduate for a agreed upon period to assist in skill improvement and job selection
  5. 5. Feedback – Bridge Program What could be improved? • There is an additional time investment post university • Admit selected graduates, those with some potential • Partnerships and tie-ups Ideas! • Can be started earlier, instead of starting at the end of the university course • Partner with universities and run a parallel curriculum Questions? • How do you differentiate from the other training institutes? • How do you establish credibility? • What’s the guarantee that a participant will land in a job? What worked? • The idea was exciting to the interviewee • Bridge concept • Detailed analysis and professional help • Courses to improve skills • Assisting in job search
  6. 6. Second Prototype LongTerm Mentors - NGO
  7. 7. Industry Mentors and Role Model  (ii) High Impact -> Industry Mentors and Role Model Identification:  A student has dreams about his career with some clarity as early as in high school, around the age of 12 to 14 years). In this model, a student is introduced to a reliable mentor who is already doing what the student wishes to become in life. The mentor guides the student through his educational and professional growth over the next 10 to 15 years by providing advice and information relevant to the career growth. Successful professionals with deep insights can adopt to mentor 2 to 5 students in this model and look at this as a way of social work for the future generations.
  8. 8. Process Model - Industry Mentor Students in the age group of 12 to 16 years register with an NGO to get help in building their careers Industry Experts and Professionals register for the cause of Human Resource Development in their community NGO matches students to mentors based on the dream job of the protégé and the profession of the mentor NGO manages the association over the next few years (5 to 10 years) and gathers data on how the relationship is working NGO takes corrective action or matches the protégé with more mentors., if needed
  9. 9. Feedback – Industry Mentor What could be improved? • Multiple people mentoring can have a better impact and influence • Parents’ andTeachers’ buy-in can be taken together with their partnership • Occasional visits to industry workspaces, to get a real feel Questions? • How do you ensure commitment to a non- profit activity? • How do you identify mentors? Can you elaborate? • Offline talk is good, but do you have some plan for a real feeling of the profession in the formative years? What worked? • Idea was well received and excited the interviewee • Concept of coaching and mentoring • Long term focus, instead of a quick fix Ideas! • Instead of one mentor, assign a panel • Take a commitment of one year and renew and swap mentor-protégé associations • Partner with universities and run an ‘Adopt a Protégé’ plan, instead of running an NGO
  10. 10. Phew!!  The prototypes got thrashed.  JobApplicants are excited as well as skeptical about the plausibility of these ideas
