Hyderabad: TalentSprint, India’s leading Youth Career Accelerator, has unveiled a series of new digital programs aimed at BTech., BSc fresh graduates and final semester students who hail from non-metros and are seeking their first job in the IT sector. The company intends to position these programs as one-stop career solutions that can help rural and semi-urban youth overcome traditional barriers of gender, geography, and privilege.

Commenting on this latest initiative, Dr. Santanu Paul, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, TalentSprint said, “Our digitally intelligent platform and these new digital courses will empower every young person to prepare for exciting, high-value IT careers. In effect, we are trying to create a backstop for the systemic failures in higher education. “

TalentSprint estimates that two million young college graduates compete for 100,000 entry-level IT jobs every year. Complicating matters, talent supply is growing at 15% per year, while new openings are growing at less than 5% per year. 60% of the talent supply resides in non-metro locations, while 100% of the openings are in metro locations. To fend off fierce competition and to maximize chances of gainful employment, non-metro job seekers as a category must now seek professional assistance and mentoring which is not accessible in their location. These programs will equip them to take up widely-used recruitment tests with confidence, and are affordably priced.

Conventional on-campus centric models are giving way to off-campus intensive models. The old first-hire-then-train model is being replaced by a new first-train-then-hire model. These disruptions are being driven by a growing appetite among new startups and established companies to reduce their bench and training costs and increase just-in-time access to the right talent.

On the USP of TalentSprint’s digital programs, Sridhar K, Chief Digital Officer, TalentSprint added, “Our programs enable students learn 24×7, the ability to play, replay, revise lessons at their own convenience, without diluting the opportunity to get one’s doubts clarified by senior faculty, which is done through live sessions. We also conduct weekly All India Mock Tests to enable one to benchmark their performance vis-à-vis others.”
