Being relevant and competitive is the mantra for survival today. The job market is squeezing day by day. Only having a graduate degree in different finance-related majors like Bcom, Mcom, MBA and BCCA etc. has long been insufficient to land a job. So, if you are jobless after graduating or feel the risk of being unemployed after graduation hanging over your head, it’s not at all a surprise.
It’s beneficial to look for short-term courses after Bcom or even if you are pursuing Bcom to make yourself gain an edge among your peers and strengthen your chance to land your dream job.
Let’s have a walkthrough of all the aspects of short-term certificate courses after and during graduation.
Why do I need to take Short – term certificate courses after BCom?
Surveys reveal that there is a disconnect between the curriculum that is taught in the college and the actual job requirements. As a result, the pass-outs lack the knowledge and skill set for the modern methods and practices used in accounting today. If you are a fresh BCom graduate or are still pursuing graduation, all you have is some theoretical knowledge, which is devoid of real-life requirements. This makes your employability hostile. Certificate courses after BCom or any other stream can bridge this gap for you.
Most businesses today expect fresh employees to become productive within a short period of time after joining. This requires good basic knowledge of the modern techniques that are followed in businesses. With merely a graduate degree or commerce elective in high school, it’ll be an uphill task for you to cope with the challenges in current-day business finance. This is the reason fresh graduates are increasingly opting for short-term courses after BCom or even when they are still studying in college to upskill themselves.
Your prospective employers can judge whether you have the desire to learn new things and develop your skill set by looking at short-term programmes on your resume. After completing your degree or 12th grade, you can do a lot of good to yourself by taking up job-oriented certificate courses during graduation or after BCom or any other degree.
