Various studies including those done by IT industry body, Nasscom have shown that 75-80% of graduates seeking jobs in the IT industry do not have the relevant skills and are hence, unemployable. To remedy that, CMC has taken the initiative in providing job-enabling training and education at the CMC Academy. Backed by CMC’s unique Learning Methodology and its deep understanding of the industry needs, these programs help in making students industry ready. CMC’s unique ‘CMC Communication Edge’ program for communication & presentation skills, interview skills and overall personality development help prepare students for the industry. CMC also offers assistance in placement on select programs.
