  • The Statement

[Indian Chapter] Understanding the Disconnect Between Skills and Jobs in India Using NLP

Challenge Started!

This Omdena Local Chapter Challenge runs for 4 weeks and is a unique experience to try and grow your skills in a collaborative and safe environment with a diverse mix of people from all over the world. 

You will work on solving a local problem, initiated by the Nellore, India Chapter.


The problem

The forthcoming includes many factors to consider, such as:

  • There is a skill gap between Industry and the skills that are taught in educational institutions.
  • Disconnect existing between the skills needed by an organization and the present capabilities of its workforce.


The project goals

We envision an AI solution that can aggregate various public big data to help better assess the demand and supply of jobs and job seekers. Ultimately the outcomes can influence curriculum, learning approaches, public-private partnerships for job training, higher education policy, and industrial policy.

The AI solution can compare supply data from unemployment data, graduation data, jobs data, etc., and demand data from online job postings, numbers and types of private sector companies in specific sectors, etc. to identify gaps or skills mismatches. It can also be used to compare skills training offered online, apprentice programs, and on-the-job training opportunities.

Finally, the AI solution can use sentiment analysis and natural language processing to have a better understanding of how companies, schools, and individuals feel about the education they receive, the jobs available, the skill levels of job seekers, and policies that incentivize greater skills/jobs alignment.
