Addressing students, Dr. Kavita Daryani Rao, Vice Chancellor of JNAFAU recalled that Creative Multimedia was the first to tie-up with the University for the Visual Art Degree Program. She complimented the group for its unquestionable strength and consistency in imparting industry-focused career programs for 21 years and wished the group more success in the years to come.

Striking a chord with students, Mr. Anil Pant, MD & CEO of APTECH highlighted the prolific job opportunities in multimedia saying: “This is one sector which will never experience a recession due to the deep penetration of internet, explosive growth in mobile phones and advent of new content platforms.”

“Today, people across age groups, gender, social strata and region are consuming content. There is an audience for every genre of content and with spiralling demand, multimedia talent like you who are create that content will never be out of a job and will always enjoy job security.

Highlighting the surfeit of job opportunities in multimedia, Mr. Anil stated: “You guys (digital media students) attract multiple job opportunities. Many are in a comfortable position to tear up at least 2 job offers. Thankfully, you are not affected by the employment crisis facing fresh graduates in mainstream sectors like Engineering. Less than 15% of engineers today are getting jobs and the average starting salary of software engineers is very lower. Also, unlike software and related sectors where new skills are required to stay job-relevant due to rapid technology changes, the basic skills required in multimedia are the same, ensuring that talent will never go obsolete in this industry.”

While parents, for long, have preferred Engineering and other mainstream careers pathways to Multimedia which is not considered aspirational, rewarding and stable enough, Mr. Anil exclaimed: “Today, with the kind of prolific opportunities and demand for multimedia talent, I wish more parents would allow children to take up multimedia careers. This is the time. Collectively, across digital media and entertainment verticals, the industry needs more than 1,00,000 trained people today but is unable to meet demand. Too many jobs are being created but we just don’t have enough talent.”

Mr. Anil treated students to a screening of “Fattu Rap” – the latest promo of Arena Animation. Exhorting students to be proud of embracing a multimedia career, he said that India is has now emerged as a major destination for the biggest names in global media and entertainment. Commending the Founder and CEO of Creative Multimedia Group, Mr. Raja Sekhar Buggaveeti, he said: “Rajasekhar is the most passionate individual I’ve come across in the Multimedia training sector in India. Staying committed to Enhancing EmploymentTM for over two decades, producing 26,000 creative art professionals and facilitating jobs for them is no small achievement and I wish the government of Telengana recognizes his efforts.”

Mr. Neeraj Raj, Founder of Immertive Pvt. Ltd., an enterprise specializing in creating immersive experiences in healthcare using Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) technologies. Stating that Animation is no more just about entertainment, he said that specializations such as Medical Animation are gaining ground as distinct verticals and helping expand the animation sector.

Elaborated on the growing role of Animation in healthcare, he said: “Medical Animation is at the forefront of modern healthcare. Though intended for different audiences, it is most commonly used as an instructional/educational tool for medical professionals and patients. Offering an immersive experience, it shows how medicines work inside the body, how surgical procedures are done, how the brain reacts to different stimuli and other physiological changes.”

Mr. Neeraj said that Medical Animation is growing bigger as AR, VR, MR and other emerging technologies are helping improve the quality of medical animation while enabling newer applications. As a result, the field is expanding fast and creating more job opportunities. He wrapped up his presentation with a thank you note and congratulated Creative Multimedia for maintaining its excellent placement record for twenty one long years.

Enhancing Employability of Young India. Since 1998

1140-things-affect-unemployment-eligibility.imgcache.revd4e5ea876ae9ca38bc25a8a281747449

Unemployment has always been a thorn in the flesh for India. Recent trends are proving worrisome, especially for young aspirants prepping for a career in the real world. Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) data showed that the unemployment rate rose sharply to touch a 28-month high of 8.4% in the third week of April 2019. Since India’s Independence in 1947, unemployment has been hovering in the range of 5.74% (Average of 71 years). While the lowest unemployment rate was 2.9% (in the year 1953), the highest unemployment rate of 9.7% was registered in the year 1982.

The current rise in unemployment presents a disturbing picture highlighted by shrinking jobs and expanding pay crisis. While this trend can be attributed to several factors including slower job creation w.r.t the number of fresh graduates joining the workforce every month, one of the key reasons is sub-standard education for students which fails to provide them suitable jobs. As a result, many settle for low-salary, non-core jobs to earn a living and are thus not gainfully employed, while others remain unemployed for long periods, up to two years in many cases.

This begs the question: What’s the point in churning our degree-holders who lack employability skills and are unfit to be a productive part of the workforce? And spare a thought for the millions of career-aspirants who invest precious resources with the dream of gainful employment.

The book ‘JOBONOMICS’* by Goutam Das presents an in-depth analysis of India’s employment crisis. With hard-hitting facts and real stories, the book highlights the magnitude of the problem and the immediate focus needed on skills-oriented education stating that “India has a culture of knowledge, not one of skilling.”

This culture has been impacting sectors across India for many years now. In fact, this piece is a continuation of our previous blog which touched upon the job crisis, pointing to the fact that unemployment is more prevalent in mainstream career pathways such as Engineering and Management which were until now highly sought-after and appealing.

Lately, Engineering has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. India produces 1.5 million engineers every year but barely 7% are employable according to an India Today Web Desk Report. In fact, a McKinsey report red-flagged the issue a decade ago revealing that only a quarter of India’s engineers were actually employable. This trend is influenced largely by the outdated and sub-standard education (inadequate, irrelevant and inferior) paradigms not just in engineering but management, science and arts too. Virtually every discipline is riddled with the same issue: sub-standard education leading to low employability of graduates.

How can India tackle this problem of low-quality education? Leading the way for academies/colleges across disciplines/sectors in India is Dilsukhnagar Arena, a revolutionary multimedia institute focused on experiential and innovative education. For over 21 years now, Dilsukhnagar Arena has been singularly committed to Enhancing EmployabilityTM. The famed institution widely acknowledged as the Largest and Best Digital Media Academy in India has successfully skilled over 26,000 students and enabled fruitful placements for them at top companies.

Here’s how Dilsukhnagar Arena got it right…….right from the beginning!

Driving Knowledge: To ensure that education evolves at the same pace as industry, Dilsukhnagar Arena works closely with top recruiters to update its multimedia courses according to current talent needs. This helps equip students with advanced knowledge to stay at the cutting-edge of the discipline and to be recognized as well-informed and industry-relevant talent.

Building Communication: Despite a sterling academic performance, candidates with poor English language skills can lose out on jobs as, English – the common language of the corporate world, is a vital employability skill. Dilsukhnagar Arena affords students a strong grounding in English to enhance their employability and to equip them with this vital advantage so they can stay confident during the interview and at the workplace.

Improving Competence: In most cases, education is not industry-aligned and fails to prepare students for employment. The resulting skill gap ensures that students are not readily employable. Dilsukhnagar Arena thrives on experiential training to close the skill gap through a variety of hands-on training programs: the reason for the high employability quotient of Dilsukhnagar Arena students and the academy’s popularity as the first port-of-call for leading recruiters across industries.

That’s not all, Dilsukhnagar Arena’s prolific mentoring, learning resources, and value-additions, all add to the superior training programs which are designed with the singular goal of Enhancing EmployabilityTM. Acknowledged for its benchmark training, Creative Multimedia, Dilsukhnagar Arena’s parent organization has been bestowed with the Best Digital Media Academy in India Award (thrice) and the Award for Academic Excellence (twice) by many reputed organizations.

Creative Multimedia 21 Years.jpg

Having facilitated employment for over 26,000 young Indians till date, Dilsukhnagar Arena Institute, with a rich legacy spanning 21 years, has contributed its bit to nation building ever since its inception way back in 1998 and is a veritable role model not just for Digital Media but for other disciplines across the board including Engineering, Management and Science in India.

Education must be a productive instruction and training procedure designed not just to impart knowledge but also help develop skills, especially for young people in colleges who are the immediate future of the nation. Irrespective of the discipline and the academy, the need of the hour is to scrap/refresh outdated curricula to meet the current industry requirements, ensure improved and adequate training infrastructure, and introduce experiential programs designed in collaboration with industry experts so that students acquire relevant, job-ready skills. This will help enhance the quality of education and improve student’s employability.

The goal should be to empower students with high employability skills and put them on the path to productive employment with better jobs and more rewarding work: the key to the improved socio-economic progress of India.

Digital Media Mania!

Growing preference for Digital Media & Entertainment careers over hitherto glamorous pathways such as Engineering and Management.

Creative Multimedia

Mayank was possibly in the happiest phase of his life. All of 22, the relief from chucking studies for good was visible on his face. Fresh as a dewdrop, the newly minted graduate was upbeat about his career and raring to step into the real world. A lucrative job, the satisfaction of standing on his own two feet and the pride in his parent’s eyes; his dream future was just before him. Sadly, life didn’t play along and the dream went bust. Mayank, an aspiring Engineer from a reputed college now finds himself jobless, even a full year after graduation.

His father, an employee with a Hyderabad-based PSU is a worried man. Mayank, from Dilsukhnagar Hyderabad, completed his B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering and was keen on building a career in the manufacturing sector. Unfortunately, he was unable to get a job through his skills are highly relevant in industries such as Aerospace, Automobiles, Defense, Electronics, Infrastructure, Marine, Metals, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceuticals and Energy.

Mayank’s case is not an isolated one. This is the plight of lakhs of engineering graduates in India who find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. The employability rate of fresh graduates is declining steeply. Studies indicate that nearly 40 percent of the 15 lakh engineers India produces every year are not readily employable. Another study by ASSOCHAM reveals that only 7 percent of MBA graduates are employable. With the exception of government-run IIMs (Indian Institutes of Management) and a few others, a majority of the 5,000+ business schools in India are producing ill-equipped graduates who are unable to find gainful employment.

While there are several reasons for this sad state of affairs including the obsolete curriculum, and poor training, one of the key factors is the mushrooming of engineering and management institutes and the widening demand-supply gap with more graduates chasing fewer jobs.

While students across career streams, and the industry, in general, are grappling with this crisis, nowhere is it more concentrated than in hitherto mainstream career pathways such as Engineering and Management. As a result, students are increasingly scouting for superior alternatives. In the recent past, the academic sector has been witnessing a major shift to digital media and other new-generation career pathways which are proving to be more rewarding, secure and growth-friendly.

The Indian Media and Entertainment (M&E) sector is going great guns, growing at 13.4% year-on-year (YOY) to touch INR 1.67 trillion in 2018. It is expected to cross INR 2.35 trillion ($33.6 billion) by 2021, at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.6%, according to a FICCI and EY report. The movie industry, of course, is a major contributor to growth. Just one look at the index of films in leading film database websites will give you an idea of the huge business generated annually. The M&E sector is entering a phase of accelerated growth, powered by many factors including new video streaming platforms, the spread of regional content, growth of smartphones and penetration of affordable broadband. Truly, these are exciting times and a harbinger of the huge growth ahead for the M&E industry.

1004.jpg

This huge growth is likely to translate into a plethora of jobs and boost opportunities for students learning Animation, VFX, Gaming, Graphic Design, Web designer courses and UI/UX Design courses. In fact, the media and entertainment sector’s growth is directly proportional to the population growth, as virtually every individual consumes entertainment in some form or the other. In this context, it’s safe to say that a career in M&E offers a secure and stable future with strong potential for career growth.

Today, jobs in media and entertainment are becoming more and more attractive. In fact, exciting and rewarding job opportunities exist not just in M&E sector companies but across other businesses including Animation & VFX Studios, Gaming Studios, Film Production Houses, Television Channels, Content Production Companies, Advertising & PR Agencies, Digital Marketing Firms, IT & ITeS Enterprises, Infrastructure & Real Estate Companies, Education & Training Companies, Pharma Research Firms, Industrial Design Agencies and e-Commerce & e-Education companies to name a few.

While an Animation/VFX/Gaming fresher commands INR 25,000 – 30,000 per month as starting salary, Graphic and Web Design freshers command INR 20,000 – 25,000 per month in the job market depending on various factors including the recruiter, the job role and the candidate’s caliber. Importantly, as this is a highly creative field, the growth potential is unlimited. Exceptionally talented candidates with 5+ years of high-quality experience are well-positioned to attract six figures salaries and more.

Some of the big recruiters of digital media talent across industries include Walt Disney Studios, Amazon, Deloitte, HCL, Infosys, Microsoft, MPC, Technicolor, TCS, Prime Focus, Deluxe Digital, Cyient, Prana Studios, Makuta, Green Gold Animation, Reliance Digital, DQ Entertainment, Orient Blackswan, Thomson Reuters, Tech Mahindra and EA to name a few. All these companies are many sought-after companies offering rewarding jobs with tremendous scope for career growth.

The shift, or perhaps more appropriately, ‘Exodus’ from conventional career streams to Digital Media & Entertainment is visible and is gaining traction even as technology and trends unshackle growth.

P.S.: Watch out for our next blog “Enhancing Employability of Young India. Since 1998”, a narrative on how India’s best digital media academy has been playing the training game smartly to help its students avoid the “unemployability issues” plaguing fresh graduates of engineering and other mainstream disciplines in India.

As a mentor, he earlier taught figure drawing and character design at Animation Art School-Goa and is currently teaching design fundamentals at Gurukul School of Design apart from delivering guest lectures frequently.

Bringing his vast experience to the workshop, Mr. Aditya took students on a steep learning curve, covering different facets of the craft, while offering the techniques and tips vital to creating professional character design. Commencing at eight in the morning, the workshop was split into three sessions and wrapped up at four in the evening. Students had many takeaways from the workshop: step by step, hands-on methods to draw; using a reference to improve drawing skills, developing character from rough sketches to developed concepts, line & stroke techniques, building versatility and key skills needed to create a fully illustrated character.
