Will this work?
Everyone who is in the industry is so familiar with these words Shortage, Scarcity of talent & lack of skill set. Every IT company with its HR team is on the hunt for best of the breed programmers. Bigger fishes have been eating smaller companies experienced, self-groomed and technically matured staff easily due to their big name and big money. Even then there is still need to get more resources. YesterdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s newspaper carried a very interesting advertisement from Netsol.

Interesting.. I never knew that the 4 years IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve spent in college can be squeezed down into a 12 month program. Imagine, no numerical analysis, no automata, no discrete logic, no computer architecture, no Pakistan studies. You take this 12-month magic pill and youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be jack of all programming skills. For a few years, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be considered extremely lucky if you come across a 4 years BS program candidate, who is willing to learn, earn and work. As most of them are just curious about the Ã¢â‚¬Å“earningÃ¢â‚¬Â part.
WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s your take on the subject? Will it work? What are your reservations about the idea?
