Unemployability – A Bigger Problem Than Unemployment!

Inside This Article

First, let us know what is the difference between “Unemployability” and “Unemployment”. Then, with some facts and figures, we will come to know why Unemployability is a bigger problem.

Unemployable means : “not acceptable for employment as a worker.”

Unemployment is : “the state of being unemployed.”

Now let us look into some intriguing facts (India):

  • More than 50 lakh students graduate per year. Very few are fit to be employed.
  • More than 50% of India’s youth lack basic skills and quality
  • GER (Gross enrolment ratio) for higher education in India is 34% which is frightfully less as compared to other developed nations (56%).
  • GER is 50% of the world’s average
  • 80% of India’s higher education system of the year 2030 is yet to be built.
  • 10,00,000 people join the labour force every month for the next 20 years without adequate training

Reasons behind unemployability in India:

  • Shortage of good institutions providing quality higher education.
  • Lack of flexibility, recognition of prior learning and employer linkages.
  • Lack of English knowledge and cognitive skills in students.

How to resolve this problem:

  • Imparting higher education, the unconventional way!
  • Introducing scholarships for deserving students
  • Providing proper counselling to students
  • Workshops and Seminars to create awareness on employability skills.

What is our initiative:
Inspiria” – Inspire to achieve!

Objective :  “Make Indian Youth Employable”


We believe that unemployability is a bigger problem than unemployment and hence we have set ourselves into a mission to address this problem.

As the first step towards addressing this issue, we set out to identify traits / skills which are required in order to achieve success. The 10 employability skills which most employers look for are:

  • Perseverance
  • Strong self-belief
  • Humility
  • Positivity
  • Innovative problem solving
  • Masterful communication
  • Collaboration
  • Passion for quality
  • Personal excellence
  • Independence

At Inspiria Knowledge Campus we equip the students with those ‘Employability Skills’ and provide them appropriate industry-specific training so that they can carry out their role in any field to the best of their ability.

  1. The metrics you have provided, have u done this study ? Are these numbers true ? How have you measured these metrics ? what statistics have you used ? What was the criterion to decide whether the candidate is eligible or not? Before making any bullshit comments, you should do proper study. Just for you advertisement don’t do it. It about our country and you just cant humiliate citizens of India for your personal gains. Grow up and find some really useful way to advertise your product or institute whatever 🙁
