American IT Workers: Unemployable?
I saw this article today: Top Indian CEO: Most American Grads Are ‘Unemployable’
Vineet Nayar, the CEO of HCL Technologies, one of India’s biggest IT services vendors, states that American IT graduates are focused on making top dollar, but are not willing to learn the basic principles and methodologies that are used to manage IT on their own, resulting in higher training costs to his company. The article goes on to explain that this is not only his opinion, but similar opinions are held by the CEO’s of top American IT firms, such as Cisco’s John Chambers. Is this a failure of our education system, or is it a cultural expectation that has been set by the extreme success stories of companies such as Cisco, Microsoft, Intel, Google, etc?
