Mumbai: Global tech major IBM chief Ginni Rometty has said Indians lack the required skillsets even as new-age jobs galore, and exhorted all to look at education beyond obtaining/giving away degrees.
The USD 180-billion domestic software industry directly employs over 4 million.
In remarks that come amid similar concerns voiced by other tech leaders domestically, Rometty, the chairman, president and chief executive of IBM, said this is a global problem and not just limited to Indian shores.
“In India, you have the same issues. Open jobs, (but) no matching skillsets,” she said, speaking at a company conference here Wednesday.
