Lacuna in Skills Development Leading to Unemployability - A Case Study
Dr. Janetius | Shilpa S.T.
Abstract: This is a case study that portrays a young rural adult, his educational background, job-hopping, who lost interest and potency to work, and his inner struggles to establish an accurate career path. Right person for the right job - a dictum by the American psychologist Frank Parsons points out the importance of inborn skills (aptitude) of an individual in sustaining a career. In the Indian scenario, there are no serious considerations given to the identification of the inner potency and people often think mistakenly that anyone can do any job. This lack of knowledge in ones own ability is the main cause of losing the potency to work, regular job-hopping, un-employability and even low job satisfaction.
