Indian CEO calls most US IT grads unemployable

Posted on Wednesday, June 24 2009 @ 05:45:32 CEST by

Vineet Nayar, the CEO of Indian IT services giant HCL Technologies, claims most American college IT grads are "unemployable" because they are far less inclined to spend their time learning the boring details of tech process, methodology and tools. He proposes employers need to have a greater influence on the tech educations of US colleges and universities, to make them more compatible with the real-world situation.

Many American grads looking to enter the tech field are preoccupied with getting rich, Vineet said. They're far less inclined than students from developing countries like India, China, Brazil, South Africa, and Ireland to spend their time learning the "boring" details of tech process, methodology, and tools--ITIL, Six Sigma, and the like.

As a result, Vineet said, most Americans are just too expensive to train--despite the Indian IT industry's reputation for having the most exhaustive boot camps in the world. To some extent, he said, students from other highly developed countries fall into the same rut.

In an interview following his presentation, Vineet said HCL and other employers need to have a greater influence on the tech curricula of U.S. colleges and universities, to make them more real-world and rigorous. For the most part, he said, those institutions haven't been receptive to such industry partnerships.
