95% engineers in India unfit for software development jobs
60 per cent candidates cannot even write code that compiles.
Talent shortage is acute in the IT and data science ecosystem in India with a survey claiming that 95 per cent of engineers in the country are not fit to take up software development jobs.
According to a study by employability assessment company Aspiring Minds, only 4.77 per cent candidates can write the correct logic for a programme-a minimum requirement for any programming job.
Other reasons include:
1. Over 36,000 engineering students form IT related branches of over 500 colleges took Automata-a Machine Learning based assessment of software development skills -? and over 2/3 could not even write code that compiles.
2. The study further noted that while more than 60 per cent candidates cannot even write code that compiles, only 1.4 per cent can write functionally correct and efficient code.
