IT graduates not 'well-trained, ready-to-go'

"There is a disconnect between students getting high-tech degrees and what employers are looking for in those graduates.

"Employers agree that colleges and universities need to provide their students with the essential skills required to run IT departments, yet only 8% of hiring managers would rate IT graduates hired as "well-trained, ready-to-go," according to a survey of 376 organizations that are members of the IBM user group Share and Database Trends and Applications subscribers.

"The study found nearly 4 out of 10 respondents report that their IT hires are not sufficiently prepared to perform jobs within their companies, and another 44% say, at a minimum, that there are noticeable gaps in their skills."
