    Hyderabad: NIIT Limited, a global leader in Skills and Talent Development, announced ‘Future Ready Talent’ an initiative to encourage youth to enhance their knowledge through future ready programs, together with their regular academic curriculum.

    As part of the initiative, Dr. Tejaswini Manogna, a renowned influencer recently addressed the youth at NIIT centre Hyderabad, on ‘Creating opportunities in the digital world through upskilling’. Speaking about future ready skills, she said “Learn what matters’ is the need of the hour and through this initiative, NIIT is encouraging the youth to enhance their skills in new-age technologies. The wide range of programs offered by NIIT in IT and Digital Marketing are helping the youth to be future ready.”

    NIIT will conduct seminars nationally across 26 centres in India, in the month of July, wherein successful leaders from diverse fields will share their experiences with the youth, building awareness about the importance of new-age future ready careers.

    Kshitij Jain, Vice President, Career Education Business, NIIT Ltd., said, “There are multiple career options available in today’s digital economy, but the aspiring professional is often confused due to non-availability of proper information and right guidance. Through this initiative, we aim to build awareness about new career possibilities and provide them with an opportunity to develop and grow in the field of their choice through our new-age career programs.”

    According to the Future of Jobs Report (World Economic Forum), jobs in digital technology will grow from 17 % in 2018 to 33 % in 2022. Estimates have indicated that 75 million jobs may be displaced by a shift in the division of labour between humans and machines, while 133 million new roles may emerge that are more adapted to this model. This demonstrates a huge requirement of skilled employees for futuristic industry 4.0 job roles.
