The common concerns of a job seeker in IT such as cut off mark, back papers, year gaps has no room in the present industrial scenario when the job aspirants have an adequate prelude to the contemporary technologies and international certification.

The vision of the finishing school is so modulated that it covers up any inadequacies of the job seekers with latest updates in technology, soft skills and live industrial exposure which are among the top listed priorities of the employer. Coherent analysis of the placement data through IPSR placement division has brought out some interesting and aspiring facts, that students with career gaps, back paper, year gaps and successfully updated through finishing school curriculum have proved to be more successful in defining a career in IT than there alternative counterpart.
