Subramanyam Reddy, CEO and Founder, KnowledgeHut upGrad, said, “Today, the employment ecosystem is undergoing massive disruption and becoming more competitive.” Even the ongoing tech turmoil and the ongoing recession are expected to change the course of jobs in the future.

Besides, working professionals or job seekers who are highly skilled in their respective domains are in high demand. To enable professionals to be market-ready, integrated upskilling is the need of the hour. Our aim behind this initiative is to create more awareness about tech skilling courses and provide users with a hands-on experience of evolved learning platforms.”

As the Indian economy expands and the number of digital services and possibilities increases, digital literacy is becoming an increasingly important skill set, particularly for gaining access to new job prospects.
