As per the report, more than 1.2 lac students mentioned Python as a major skill in their resume while applying for internship and job opportunities. This is certainly because Python is a versatile, easy to learn, and high-level programming language featuring a large number of work-from-home opportunities.

Another important learning from the report is that out of the total enrolments in online skill-based courses, 66% of the enrolments came from engineering (B.Tech, BE, BCA, and MCA) students which highlight that STEM students are exploring new career possibilities in non-technical fields as well.
