Are you a student looking out seriously to start your career in a top notch company? Or are you a software professional looking to hone your skills in other domains and verticals? Or are you looking out for websites in the internet which can hone your technical skills and competencies? Or even are you a recruiter hunting for some bright and right candidates for your multi-national company?
If you fall among any one of these categories, then dive in into the world of InterviewStreet.com. InterviewStreet, basically, is a portal for students to interact with professionals from their industry in the form of virtual interviews.
I would blindly state that the curriculum inculcated in the professional institutions are of mere use in the industry. The educational programs are structured by the parent universities for a decade or two. And in this radical world where everything changes, so does the technologies used in the industry. Finally, the students end up learning those technologies which are no longer in vogue with the industry or to put in simple terms, those technologies that are obsolete.
Who do you blame? The Industry? Universities? Or the entire Education system? Frankly, I find this situation similar to accusing the political system. We know that it is of no use and yet we do it.
Ok! Lets not get into politics right now!! Now this is where I find InterviewStreet pretty useful. Not only because it connects corporates to campuses but also it bridges the gap between what is taught in colleges and what is expected by the companies, which is what the students crave for. What are you waiting for? Try it!!
