Behavioural and professional competencies including communication skills, interpersonal skills, etc., are critical to the growth of a student into a professional, and will also be nurtured within the CL-SA ecosystem.
Co-founded by Santhosh P. N and Krithika Srinivasan in 2019, Bangalore-based CareerLabs is India's first Profile-Building Platform to help students prepare for their professional life beyond college. The startup has conducted more than 150 Recruitment drives and partnered with various other industry leaders like DR. Reddy's, HelloIntern for exclusive programs that bring students closer to the industry and provide direct Job Opportunities.
CareerLabs is on a mission to enable 1 million students to learn and earn better with the necessary guidance. Most students in college aspire to land their dream job, but due to the lack of industry-relevant skills, they end up in the wrong placements.
Speaking about the partnership with SkillAssure, Co-founder and CEO of CareerLabs, Santhosh P. N, said, "At the heart of this CL-SA synergetic ecosystem is the Talent Acceleration Model that identifies where the student’s talents and interests lie. It then recommends the skill sets that should be cultivated to maximise their chances of landing their dream job at leading tech companies, and provides training for achieving the same. One of the greatest challenges in creating an industry-ready workforce is mapping the right talent to the right job role, and this collaboration aims to tackle this challenge head-on."
At CareerLabs, the team offers students more than six courses that fit their interests and strengths with its career recommendations track. It is a year-long journey that students take up with CareerLabs and with real-time projects and hands-on experience at the end of the courses. These projects and experiences help students kick start their careers.
Over the last decade, SkillAssure has successfully placed over 50,000 engineers across its globally recognised partner organisations through its upskilling programmes. CareerLabs, another frontrunner in the upskilling niche, has built a talent pool of 1.5 lakh engineering students and has been empowering them with relevant job opportunities in renowned IT companies.
With CareerLabs’ and SkillAssure’s track record of transforming thousands of recently graduated engineers into project-ready professionals, this pilot collaboration promises to open up a multitude of avenues for learning and upskilling in the students’ pursuit for professional success.
