A fresher in transition from campus to corporate has a big challenge to adapt to the change, their travel is from assignments and semesters to team work and deadlines. Student-life is mostly care-free, typically students live their own timings, bunk classes, skip lessons and still make their grades. Their professors are focused on enhancing learning quotient and look at improving their subject matter understanding; they evaluate them on their overall learning ability and implementation to a certain extent. However, in an organisational setting, one is not only expected to be on time, attend meetings, take decisions, but also understand team based working in order to deliver on time within acceptable quality. From a manager’s perspective, there is a constant pressure to deliver and meet deadlines using existing and derived knowledge.
Campus to Corporate transitions needs more attention as they involve a lot of planning. Even though one has high ranks throughout the academic career, once stepped into the world of computers and business, it’s the ability to deploy knowledge that counts and not the grades on the papers.
This change requires an understanding of realities in a corporate environment like the required attitude, importance of learning as a continuous exercise over earning, excellence, ownership, creativity and innovation, initiative to solve problems, internal motivation to overcome internal interference like self-doubt, limiting beliefs, and negative memories. Wherever one comes from, at entry level, all freshers are lined up at a common starting point and their growth depends on their attitude, skill and performance. For the corporate, a highly internally motivated long term performing and learning individuals will take the organisation to greater heights, as a team.
