Mock Interview – A key for successful career

mock-interview

Mock interviews provide candidates with an opportunity to test out their interview skills with someone who isn’t evaluating them for an actual job. A mock interview may be offered through career services for students or recent alumni, by a career coach or through a local workforce services office for candidates in the process of transitioning to a new opportunity.

Mock interviews help candidates reduce their anxiety about interviewing by training them for the typical interview questions. The person conducting the mock interview session is most likely an experienced interviewer and a skilled trainer, who can guide candidates whether or not their responses are suitable, along with providing them the most appropriate set of response they should practice. In the process the candidates gain their confidence by having the knowledge about their strengths and shortcomings. No one is perfect enough to execute everything faultlessly, so the purpose of these mock interviews is to point out one’s weaknesses and guide them to bring perfection by rectifying those.

Mock interviews also prepare job seekers for behavioral-based issues in an interview. In a real interview the behavioral standard is judged much by the interviewee’s body language. So, it is very important to know how one can appear best by employing those standard set of gestures. From the moment of entry in the interview room everything about the posture will be marked minutely. Therefore, one needs to know very accurately about what the things are that one should do and what not. Right from the way of stepping into the room, greetings to the panelists, way of looking at them, style of sitting and manner of responding to them – everything counts on. And mock interview sessions are the best ways to gather knowledge about all these little details which are too important to overlook.

At Texvyn we provide a career launch pad for engineering graduates, who wish to embark their career with growing engineering industry segments in India & Abroad. Texvyn’s mock interview session helps our candidates to get placed in right industry by evaluating their key skills  & interest.

Opportunity for Graduate Engineers at FMCG Sector

pricing-strategies-for-rural-india-fmcg-2-728

Graduate engineers’ jobs in this industry involve developing and optimizing manufacturing processes to keep products moving fast off the production lines.

Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturing is very much as the name suggests: high quality products that fly off the production lines as fast as they fly off supermarket shelves. Typical products include home cleaning items, personal hygiene goods and foodstuffs, such as crisps and ready meals. Major players include companies like Procter & Gamble and Unilever, which produce a wide portfolio of products, while other companies like Walkers and L’Oreal tend to focus on single product areas. In FMCG, engineers have the vital role of developing and managing manufacturing processes to remove costs and wastage and keep things moving – thousands of units of each product can come off a production line every minute. Engineers also continually innovate new machines and processes to match the demands made on products by consumers.

Trends and developments in fast moving consumer goods

Sustainability is the watchword and this expands beyond the industry’s manufacturing processes and facilities. The current issue is to reduce packaging. Another headline is ‘maintain reliability’: machines have to run consistently for long periods. Automation, robotics and programmable logical controllers are the focus. The goal is to run ‘lights out’ operations where machines are set running and left to run with no further human intervention.

What it’s like working in the fast moving consumer goods industry

Manufacturing facilities are pressurized environments, but also brilliant training grounds. Engineers face new challenges every day and you’ll learn quickly about processes, equipment design and people. Graduates work alongside experienced engineers as part of a small team with responsibility for part of a process or a project, which could focus on improving an existing line or installing new technology. Many FMCG companies buy production lines off the peg and then customize and optimize them for their own purposes.

Getting a graduate job in fast moving consumer goods

Most engineering disciplines are applicable for jobs in manufacturing, but most applicants have a mechanical, chemical or electrical engineering background. In addition to technical understanding, employers want engineers with the right soft skills and personal capabilities, such as leadership and relationship building, flexibility, and the ability to think and act decisively. After a couple of years, you could progress to managing a line and the people running it, or move into an area that focuses on developing and implementing particular processes or technology. There are lots of opportunities to progress into interesting roles because the industry is so dynamic and embraces change to keep advancing.

The highlights of a career in fast moving consumer goods

  • It’s a good training ground where you’ll learn a lot quickly.
  • The broad range of career opportunities once you have gained foundation experience.
  • Working on familiar products that are used in people’s daily lives.

Poor Employ-ability Ratio of Indian Engineering Graduates

blue-prints714

The India employability report by Aspiring Minds, a research firm, has bought out the obvious fact that the quality of the education system in India is, well, abysmal.

But it is the numbers that really dents the point home. Chennai, home to Anna University, one of the largest universities in India with about 400 colleges affiliated to it, has an employability rate of an awful 1%. Even the the state with the highest employability percentage, Delhi, is only at 13%. Bangalore, the so called ‘silicon valley of India’ is at a staggering 3.2%.

Clearly, something is horribly wrong with our technology education system & the mentality of students pursuing engineering. Students have no idea about the career options available after completing engineering. Below are the some mojor points which results in poor employability of Engineering graduates in the country.

  1. Outdated learning – Syllabus followed in our colleges is based on 90’s industrial practice, which have no relevance in todays technology based industry. This could be one reason why engineering students are not relevant to today’s industry.

  2. Theory vs Practice – The current education system poses a chasm between theory and practice. Very little of what is learnt at college can be put into practice in everyday life. Hence, the best performers of the system, which are the kids with the best grades, actually can do very little work and need to be separately trained for it. That’s an expense that not everyone in the industry wants to take.

  3. Exam culture – Learning is a continual process, and exams are a way to measure the extent of your learning. It is not the end all. Unfortunately, the grade of a graduate is the first filter for employment, and hence students lay emphasis on only the exam and not on learning the subject. This results in weak fundamentals, and hence, industry irrelevance.

  4. Lack of exposure – Given that the end goal of technical education is a placement in a college, the amount of exposure given to students about the industry is also very little. It is not until the final year of their college that they begin to understand what the industry really wants. An early exposure to industry can give students an idea of what is relevant in the industry, which they can learn in their own time.

  5. Bad career matching – Over the years, the lucrative opportunities that a professional life in the technology industry has provided, has made engineering sciences the de-facto choice for graduate studies. Weather or not the student has the aptitude for the stream is not taken into account, resulting in uninterested engineering candidates, who haven’t taken to their subjects as much as they should have, making them irrelevant to the industry.

The problem is fairly easy to solve for engineering and many like us are solving it at scale. We at Texvyn Technologies provides a professional & industrial courses which are backed with latest industrial tools. At Texvyn we ensure that students get the knowledge of latest industry know-how, best industry they can fit in depend on their caliber & competency, dedicated HR team to help them in their initial phase of job search, we keep our students updated with new upcoming technologies by means of  various work shops & technology days conducted at regular intervals.

“Engineers Need Finishing Schools To Become Industry-Ready!”

4dbec6_d0b05956a6fc4fec95b3c3fefb9fdd69

 Most of the students passing out do not get adequate opportunities to get the requisite on-the-job training/industry exposure while they are studying. This limits their technical know-how and competency to theory only, said Raghu Panicker, sales director- India, Mentor Graphics. If you are planning to make a career as an engineer, your studies will not end in the college! You have to go a stage beyond that and resort to finishing schools to become fully employable for the industry. Finishing schools have become a necessity for the engineering students in India. While colleges provide technical education, finishing schools add to it and teach students what is not taught in their books… the practical knowledge. EFYTimes.com spoke to Raghu Panicker, sales director- India, Mentor Graphics about the importance of finishing schools in making engineers employable. Excerpts:

Do engineering students need finishing schools for getting industry-ready?

In the industry we see a huge demand for technically competent engineering graduates and this demand has been growing year on year. However, the employability factor of the students passing out from various colleges and universities is very low. Most of the students passing out do not get adequate opportunities to get the requisite on-the-job training/industry exposure while they are studying. This limits their technical know-how and competency to theory only. A logical extension to this would be to have finishing schools that would help students to get the required Industry know-how & competency to be productive from day-one. These finishing schools should ensure they take the right students and give them proper guidance in partnership with leading technology leaders like Mentor Graphics.

What is wrong with the course taught in the colleges that the students do not become get ready for the industry after they pass out? Is there a need for the colleges to improve?

The main challenge today is not making the engineering graduates employable but also to ensure that there are more number of competent Industry ready engineers for better productivity & innovation. We have seen that Fresh engineering graduates who get hired by leading companies have to go through an Induction on Product engineering oriented or Process engineering oriented or focussed in-house training program. These programs are usually driven & guided by internal engineers, Managers & Product/process specialists and the same runs for over 4 to 6 months. These programs involve lot of efforts, time & costs for any corporate. Colleges can help the Industry by providing a well-planned framework that would encompass what the corporates need and accordingly train the engineers to be Industry ready. They could also partner with leading companies to frame finishing school concept to give the right mix and exposure that’s necessary and prepare them for challenges in the VLSI & Semiconductor Industry. The finishing school concept has always been used in the short run but I think it would be good if we really focus hard and having a finishing school with a long term vision.

What exactly is lacking in the students after they pass out from the colleges?

During the past students had very little exposure to Industry needs but now we have seen that students aswell as colleges try to give basic training to ensure good placements for the students. The students should overcome their lack in understanding the real-time exposure that’s required to be Industry ready and also should focus on basic communication skills to be successful. In the global scenario an engineering graduate can be successful only if he/she is able to communicate & present their respective technical capabilities as desired in their employment.
