- Lack of Mentorship: this is by far the biggest issue that they face. Most of them are on their own, without any proper guidance. The Professors are hardly concerned about students’ learning. The seniors are incompetent. As a result, the students are seriously misguided. Most of them end-up at IT services companies, slogging for half of the day on a minimum salary, not being aware of the opportunities in life that they are losing.
- Lack of Motivation: due to the above factors, most of the students easily lose motivation and give-up in life. The little kid who was dreaming of becoming a pilot ends up working at Infosys or TCS for a salary of 3 lakhs a year.
- Lack of Awareness: the students tend to stay within their cocoon of what their seniors and Professors teach them and thus they lose out on a large number of opportunities due to lack of awareness. For instance, even today, most students depend on campus placements to get a job, not knowing that there are great online portals for jobs and internships.
