Training is a program that helps in learning specific knowledge or skills to improve performance in the current situation. That is why we always recommend students to take training from an expert or undergo industrial exposure.
Training from an expert or industrial training is mandatory to bridge the gap in the academic curriculum and in the industry. This will help the students develop skills and competencies they require to become employable. This has been a practice in most of the Western countries. So when they are fresh out of the college, while joining the company they just have to learn the process followed in the company. It provides an opportunity for students to apply theoretical knowledge acquired in the classroom with the practical application of comprehension required to perform an assignment.
For instance, in the case of IT industry like TCS, industrial training teaches them how the environment will be when they go to work. It gives the students a feel of how their work environment will be when they join the company. Industrial training also gives the students exhibition to students on the tools used in the industry. The industrial training process makes the student job ready.
In the case of Knowledge Industry, the candidates must have problem-solving skills. The students get hands-on exposure about how the business problems are solved by the company and how they get paid.
Industrial training also enhances personal skills as well as presentation skills. Industrial training quickens the process of transformation/change from a student to employee. If the student is really quick-witted, the company may give an offer letter to the students. It also helps the students to connect between what they are doing in the college and what is there in the industry.
