We don't just offer a course but the essential roadmap for academics to be fully equipped to enter the job market.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, university graduates have struggled to enter the job market and compete among other graduates for suitable placement in different industries. These graduates' marketability has always been a challenge of immense proportions when they try to secure a spot in the job market. A hiring manager would always consider the potential candidates' skills as the main deciding factor in hiring them.

We at GemRain Consulting are proud to present the GemRain Industrial-Prep for Academics (GR-IPA) training courses to offer all universities and higher education institutions to participate in the abovementioned programs. Our GR-IPA series of courses are specially crafted to prepare the students with the necessary competencies of different technologies such as Microsoft, Python, and many more.
