"There are more than 400 direct IT companies in Sri Lanka and at any given time, there are more than 1000 job vacancies available. But you still cannot grab an opportunity"

Although I am a graduate, but I’m still unable to find an opportunity in the IT industry. Why?

Because of the Sri Lankan education system and attitudes of parents, children are pushed to follow almost pre-defined path to obtain a degree qualification. Hence, all higher educational institutes including private and state universities are ready to offer a degree qualification after completing about 40 academic subjects as an institutional requirement. But, it is pretty obvious that there is a huge gap between a student who has just graduated in the IT field and factual IT industry out there. Therefore, 90% of the degree holders are reluctant to enter into the IT industry even they have been recognized by their degree qualifications.

Why do we have this gap?

Almost all the higher educational institutes in Sri Lanka, focus on providing knowledge based education system because of the university standards that they have to maintain. But the expectations of the IT industries are very high and more complicated due to the advancement of human needs and wants.

For an instance, think about the mobile phone that we used to use a decade ago. They were big, ugly and used only for the purpose of communication. But look, what has it become today? Mobile phones are so advanced that they are slim, smart, and we can do almost anything at our finger tips. So if we look around the environment that we live closely we can understand that technologies have evolved so much to accustomed to the human needs and wants.

How does DEP help you to get a good place in the IT Industry?

Well, IJSE has more than 12 years of experience of giving training and producing IT professionals in Sri Lanka. Hence, IJSE has taken further steps to uplift the life of young generation in the good manner by establishing the DEP. After carefully analyzing of industrial gaps of thousands of individual IT degree holders we introduced DEP to align them to enter into the top 10 IT companies with a good salary. The DEP has been designed to build up the professional body of a software engineer (and also applicable for business analysts, quality assurance engineers, and other few professions) by using three dedicated training sessions. DEP can be only obtained only through IJSE.

How do I complete this DEP within a short period (THE FAST TRACK)?

We enroll candidates who have some prior knowledge in IT. Let’s assume that you have a degree in physical science or bio science. But if you have still done some major IT subjects within the degree, you are still eligible for the DEP.

Because of our specialty and uniqueness, you are surely eligible for getting opportunities from the IT companies within a short period of time like 4 months .
