"Out Of Syllabus"

I would like to share the release of my next book “Out Of Syllabus – Career Success tips that no one taught YOU”. This book’s idea and genesis was from my varied interactions with students from a diverse range of educational institutions. The overriding sentiment that dominates any student’s mind today is with regard to placement. Unfortunately, this is more in terms of designation, salary, etc., and not in terms of learning.

The other side of the story is the lack of employability skills in these young adults. The question that haunts HR Managers is this lack of employability skills.

OUT OF SYLLABUS” has been conceived and written to provide inputs with regard to all these important inputs which is not a part of most educational syllabus and therefore never taught to anyone. This book aims to address the issue of employability skills and provide a hands on and practical guide to career planning and gaining employability skills. "Out Of Syllabus" addresses all those gaps with regard to employability skills, career planning and career success.

The initial response to the book on Flipkart has been very encouraging and it is now available in many leading book stores. The New Indian Express had carried a detailed interview of mine about the book which has captured the essence of “Out Of Syllabus” very well.

The inputs contained in “Out Of Syllabus” is now being rolled out as a career success training program and the first few programs have been received very well. A brief version of this program was delivered at an educational institute in Chennai as part of the Business Line Club initiative and the same was covered in The Hindu Business Line.

I look forward to your feedback about the book and also request you to write to me if you would like to organise the “Out Of Syllabus” training program.
