"Oh I'm sorry, what was the question again? I was busy thinking about that cake I had for breakfast this morning."

Vineet Nayar, some CEO of some company (HCL Technologies),  said that most american college graduates are unemployable. In other news, Vinnet Nayar is named the biggest douche in corporate America.

“Many American grads looking to enter the tech field are preoccupied with getting rich, Vineet said. They’re far less inclined than students from developing countries like India, China, Brazil, South Africa, and Ireland to spend their time learning the “boring” details of tech process, methodology, and tools–ITIL, Six Sigma, and the like.

As a result, Vineet said, most Americans are just too expensive to train–despite the Indian IT industry’s reputation for having the most exhaustive boot camps in the world. To some extent, he said, students from other highly developed countries fall into the same rut.

In an interview following his presentation, Vineet said HCL and other employers need to have a greater influence on the tech curricula of U.S. colleges and universities, to make them more real-world and rigorous. For the most part, he said, those institutions haven’t been receptive to such industry partnerships.”

As if it isn’t hard enough to get a job these days. American college grads are very hard working. Excuse me, I’ll be back after my 3 hour lunch break…
