Jetking Infotrains Industry Academia Meet 2019 Focuses on Indian Job Market Trend


With an aim to make Indians more job-ready with their ‘Skill India’ program, Jetking, one of the leading institute in digital skills and networking training, has arranged their first Industry Academia Meet at The Leela to discuss about this issue in detail. The meeting saw the introduction of Ethical Hacking, IoT and AWS – Cloud courses under Jetking’s roof.



Siddarth Bharwani, VP, Jetking Infotrain, comments, “This Meet was organized to form a community of recruiters and members of academia with a single motto in mind – To make students more employable. In India, there is a mismatch between the education curriculums and the expectations of corporates. The theoretical knowledge imparted in formal education institutes often aren’t sufficient to meet the practical requirements of being on the job. We realized that there was a need for a platform where recruiters and educators could meet and understand each other’s requirements and limitations to bridge that gap of understanding. We are extremely proud of having achieved that goal”.



Prominent members of academia and established recruiters from across the nation were present at the event. The members of the academia offered advice to placement teams on their expectations to aid their efforts in boosting employability. Along with that, recruiters also gave students of Jetking an idea about Industry 4.0.

Founded in 1947, Jetking has trained over 7,00,000 students so far and plans to train over 10 lakh by 2022 as per their tie-up with NSDC. Microsoft, Cisco and IBM are some of the business partners Jetking currently has and it offers specialized courses in AWS – Cloud, IoT, CEH and more. Headquartered in Mumbai, Jetking has over 100 successful centres in India and has also forayed into international markets. They also cater to the needs of Accenture, TCS, Airtel, Wipro, Infosys and Capgemini by extending guaranteed placements to all their students through their network of 5000+ recruiters.
