http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...a-unemployable-Study/articleshow/50704157.cms This is so true. The quality of engineering graduates has fallen so steeply (I can vouch for at least the computer sciences and IT) over the years. In fact, it feels like 99%+ would be a more accurate figure for being unemployable. Personally, I would not even blame the quality of education or the colleges. It was like that even 10~15 years back, but it never stopped students with enthusiasm for the subject from building their knowledge and skills on their own. This is no longer the case. Most of the candidates that are that are hitting the market these days don't seem to be fit for anything except to increase the head count stat at one our IT services companies. I have been doing interviews for last one year to fill two openings at my work place and we are yet to fill even one of them. I have gone through countless candidates and they have constantly surprised me by taking the bar to even lower heights. It makes me surprised that these candidates even have a job at any company at all with such poor fundamentals and skill deficiency. In fact, my interview count over my entire career is close to 300 and only 4 candidates have got cleared, which puts my accept ratio at 1.3%. This is so pathetic that its depressing. People need to realize that getting your degree is no where near enough for getting employed.
