GMRIT- An institute helping youths to prosper with
new-age job opportunities

07 October 2021

The onset of 21st century marked the beginning of an employment culture across the industries, wherein vocational and technical trainings were termed insufficient if they were not coupled with creative skillset. Employers today believe in hiring creative workers who can readily engage in teamwork and lead the team to solve problems, themselves. Even the jobs have now evolved from routine tasks with fixed and explicit rules to open-ended tasks that require employees to apply their creativity and judgment. While, excelling in the technical skills is a must-have requirement but to ace the employment arena with high-paying jobs and good job environment, employees also need to possess the adequate mix of creative and soft-skills.
