Udacity Partners with InShorts and Urban Clap to Bridge The Industry-Academia Divide
Students who take up any Nanodegree courses from Android Development, IOS, Full Stack, Front End, Data Analysis or Machine Learning at Udacity will get an opportunity to directly interview with these leading startups.
Udacity, a global leader in disruptive learning technologies, has partnered with leading tech startups such as InShorts, Urban Clap, Daily Hunt, Wittyfeed and more to help their Nanodegree holders land a high paying job. With rapidly changing technologies, the global demand for new-age skill sets in digital and analytics is largely unmet by traditional education system, which leaves students in a perennial fix. In a bid to bridge this industry-academia gap, Udacity has partnered with these startups to help students access job opportunities easily.
Students who take up any Nanodegree courses from Android Development, IOS, Full Stack, Front End, Data Analysis or Machine Learning at Udacity will get an opportunity to directly interview with these leading startups. The average salary offered for this would be around 6-18 lakhs for 0-3 years of experience. Students who are in their final year or pre-final year of their undergraduate courses can also take up this programme.
The courses offered by Udacity are specially designed by industry leaders AT&T, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, Amazon, Cloudera etc.. The idea is to have industry perspective in mentoring candidates who will soon be available in the job market. Taking the same idea forward, the Get Hired initiative is aimed at connecting industry ready candidates with leading tech startups for jobs with high paying salaries.
Vardhan Koshal, Country Manager at Udacity said, “The industry for on-demand online courses is on a rise and there is a significant opportunity for students to upskill themselves. Our Get Hired initiative will help students get first-hand industry experience and knowledge, which in turn will make them ready for real life job challenges. We are very excited to partner with leading startups of the country who will provide Nanodegree graduates a wide range of career opportunities.“
Commenting on the partnership, Deepit Purkayastha, Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Inshorts, said, "At Inshorts we intend to make content consumption and discovery on mobile very easy and technology serves as the strongest enabler towards this goal. We are always on the lookout for top quality tech talent. We are pleased to partner with Udacity to discover candidates who have the right skills and necessary exposure to build world-class mobile experiences.”
