It’s no secret that the digital wave is sweeping across the post-pandemic world. As the tech sector hits a record high growth at 15.5% one thing has become clear- businesses would need to keep abreast of digitalisation, and continuously innovate to stay at the forefront of the $227 Bn industry.
To keep up with this rapid pace of technological change, companies are ramping up the hiring wars to hire and retain skilled candidates. However, employers are coming to grips with the growing gap between formal education and the skills required in the workforce.
In fact, 74% of IT decision-makers in India identify a shortage of skilled IT personnel as one of the main threats to their business.
"In technology, it's about the people. Getting the best people, retaining them, nurturing a creative environment, and helping to find a way to innovate." - Marissa Mayer, CEO, Yahoo!

A Mechanical Engineer by education, Mohit Solanki dreamt of becoming a developer and refused to let his background stand in the way of his passion.
Just as he graduated from his engineering college, the world entered the pandemic era and the tech industry bloomed. Mohit realised that the way forward was digital, but without an extensive coding background, it would have been a pipedream at best. As he puts it:
“During my college time, I never thought I'd be able to code”.
But that’s when he came across Masai and decided to make the school the wind beneath his wings, using his penchant for hard work to cope with the dynamic curriculum the school offers. With a rigorous 37 weeks program built on an ever-shifting curriculum in line with industry demands, and a faculty consisting of industry veterans, Masai has transformed 2500+ individuals into fresh and highly skilled software developers and data analysts. Thanks to this intensive training focused on skill-building, 4 Masai graduates including Mohit landed jobs with CallHub as full-stack developers.
Mohit has been employed with CallHub for close to a year now. Once a novice in the industry, He is now a shining example of what Indian youth could achieve with access to the right resources and guidance.
During this time he has contributed to a number of projects. From building and managing KYC processes to creating new features like sample data, Mohit has been busy managing the frontend for the company.
Proactive in taking up projects, he notes that a wise techie knows testing himself with new and different projects is the only way to continually improve and deliver results in the tech world. Masai teaches its students to be life-long learners, and Mohit is no different.
This approach also finds a home in CallHub’s own ethos:
Another noteworthy project involves developing a tool that would make it easier for agents to manage and gather a repository of contacts, increasing their range and smoothening the process.
CallHub’s appreciation for Masai’s candidates was personally shared by their People and Culture Partner.
Indian IT decision-makers are now readily seeking skill-building institutes like Masai, bridging the gap between hungry employers and a skilled talent pool. To date over 2500+ Masai graduates have been placed with its over 2000+ hiring partners like Ola, Uber, Dream11, and Goldman Sachs.
