The conservative thinking of parents and the skill gap leading to a lack of jobs is restricting the potential and development of entertainment and media industry in India. Media and Entertainment Industry is ascending but simultaneously it is struggling with many skill advancement complications including the gigantic gap in supply and demand in terms of quality and quantity of workforce.
Media and Entertainment Skills Council (MESC) assisted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Development (MHRD) organised ‘Manthan: An Academia Meet’ at RFC. A platform was created for the dignitaries to connect, exchange ideas and build relations for creating career opportunities for the youth of India. This event brought together academicians, media and the entertainment industry, targeting the skill training and career opportunities in the media and entertainment industry.
Despite the general notion that India has a rich pool of creative youth, the country’s work in the media and entertainment industry hasn’t been globally recognised. This initiative will lead to the merger of two huge segments, the Media and Entertainment with Human Resource Development to garner all the unprecedented possibilities and opportunities by introducing relevant courses and flourishing the right skill set that will provide students with the complete knowledge in their chosen trades and make them ready. The focus will be on human, skill, creativity and innovation development to make future generations seekers, explorers, and believers. The purpose is to create entrepreneurs, who in turn will create jobs bridging the existing job gap in this burgeoning industry.
