In India, hiring organisations are reporting a serious skills gap between current and prospective employees. From hard skills to soft skills, high-level executives report that they believe that a majority of fresher candidates are underskilled. In fact, they even believe that a significant percentage of them are lacking essential soft skills including collaboration, critical thinking and communication. What does this mean? It means that many fresh graduates are lacking some of the most desired skills for the future.
