Improving chances

Speaking on the launch Mohan Lakhamraju, CEO and Founder, Great Learning said, “We believe that the pandemic should not get in the way of young aspirants starting their careers. Hence, we want to provide students in the final year of their colleges and freshers an opportunity to crack sought-after jobs. We have a pool of companies who have partnered with us to open up vacancies on CareerPlus. The rigorous preparatory assistance and job ready tests we provide to aspirants ensures that they have a better chance of cracking job interviews and companies also need to spend less time and effort to find high quality candidates. This is one of our many endeavours to help learners in achieving their desired professional career trajectory irrespective of the external factors.”

CareerPlus is part of Great Learning’s open learning platform — Great Learning Academy. CareerPlus provides aspirants with specially designed job preparation programmes that consist of self-paced videos, quizzes and doubt-clearing live sessions delivered by subject matter experts.

To help aspirants when applying to specific jobs, further preparatory programmes on high demand technical skills such as Java, Python programming, SQL, data structures and algorithms, digital marketing, and sales are also offered.
