Srinivasan Ramanujam, Founder at Career Mudhra




Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Srinivasan Ramanujam: I have started this Software Training & Placements services company because I would like to use my expertise on selecting the right course for every student’s career. Career is important in everyone’s life however, this has not been fixed at any cost in our life. Because, our priority for choosing the right career is always secondary.


Though a lot of students have studied Engineering in Computer Science, they never choose the right career in their life. After their professional education, they again go for post graduate or some other studies since they don’t have a clear vision in their mind.And most importantly, they don’t know the realistic world or real time industrial experience.


The industry expects skilled people and the companies never find the skilled people as they are working and they are very limited.That means, industry requires more skilled people but you can’t find people in the job market.


There’s a huge gap between the fresh graduate versus the industry expectations. Any fresh graduate doesn’t understand what is the right skill we need to possess to be eligible for any company.


So, there’s a lack of career counseling. That’s where CAREER MUDHRA comes into place to help those people/students to identify their skills and enhance their skills in a practical manner.


Great Companies: What are the various Services provided by Career Mudhra

Srinivasan Ramanujam: We are providing Digital Marketing Course, Data Science course with 100% assistance.


Even for some cases, for digital marketing courses, whoever is performing well, we are giving 100% placement services.Since, we have our one development company and we have a lot of requirements for Digital Marketers.


Also, we are getting so many requests from the other placement consultancies and from the recruiters and from the corporates. So, we will refer the candidates for their companies for work.


Great Companies: What makes Career Mudhra different from hundreds of other Software Training Firms?

Srinivasan Ramanujam: We have our unique selling proposition of career counseling, choosing the right course with respect to their skill set and the most important one is a practical guidance for each course.


For each and every concept, we are teaching them to be industry ready. Without understanding a single concept, they can’t go to another one.They have to finish their assignments after each session and they have to submit and get it approved by their industrial experts trainers.


Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?

Srinivasan Ramanujam: Getting clients to learn new things is always a challenging one. People will give a second thought when it comes to education and learning. So, getting the prospect for software training is a major challenge. However, we are overcome with a lot of ideas like we give free videos in our Career Mudhra application (which is also available on Career Mudhra YouTube channel).


And a lot of e-books to be downloaded for each course.And after their course, almost all the students from Career Mudhra got placed in reputed industries like Infosys and also the mid-segment companies.


So, by word of mouth and also their confidence on how we are training them make them feel happy and get placements in their respective fields. With this experience, students have got their trust.
