Demographic Variables Impacting Employability in Professional Courses

Suneeta De | Sohini Ghosh | Debadrita Sen [2] | Sarabjeet Lahiri

Abstract: As teachers of Humanities at a privately financed academic institution, one is always keenly aware of the outcomes required at different levels of accreditation. Frequently one works with a goal, proposing a plan towards achieving it. Attainment of desired ends is not a guarantee. If the proof of pudding is in the eating, then it is only fair for the stakeholders to assess outcomes and reverse engineer a path that could guarantee certain results, instead of academically trusting processes to work. The premise being that a successful student of a professional course is one who is accepted in the industry. Towards this end, the paper takes the outcome of certain programs in terms of their student placement records obtained from the college the students attended, and endeavours to filter out the common factors that are present. This endeavour tests certain hypotheses in the author?s minds regarding demographic influences that could be contributors to the process. The findings of the survey conducted, to elicit real - time responses from student stakeholders, both employed as well as unemployed, unearth some remarkable findings that colleges may want to bear in mind when they admit students to tier 2 colleges in India, especially West Bengal.

Keywords: demographic influences, employability, medium of instruction, socio - economic factors, gender bias
