  • Young Indians are seeking more and more instant gratification early in their careers
  • There has been an increase in interest in online learning of 46 per cent over the past three years
  • There could be a rise in off-beat careers in the future such as spa management, pet-grooming, gemology and pottery

New Delhi, June 23, 2017: Young Indians are keen on unconventional and new career choices, online learning and engagement at work, a study said on Friday.

Conducted by education technology firm Talentedge in collaboration with global research firm Kantar TNS, it suggested there could be a rise in off-beat careers in the future such as spa management, pet-grooming, gemology and pottery.

Young Indians have had a nascent realisation that acquiring add-on specialised certification will give one an edge.

“The future of Young India is unpredictable and so it is important for them to be more agile and flexible than ever before, and, therefore, must work on constant up-skilling and education,” said Aditya Malik, CEO and MD, Talentedge, in a statement.

According to the study, youth are seeking more and more instant gratification early in their careers, requiring employers to constantly keep the young employees engaged and stimulated.

“If a company needs to keep young employees motivated, it must create a sense of growth by giving them short term goals and ensure a work-life balance,” added Ritika Goswami, Account Director, Kantar TNS India. (IANS)

Commuters in the national capital can now view “auto-rickshaw” routes as well as fares on Google Maps app, tech giant Google Monday said.

“Starting today, commuters in Delhi will be able to see a new public transport mode in Google Maps — auto-rickshaws. By selecting this mode of transport, commuters will be able to view suggested routes for the ride as well as the estimated auto-rickshaw fares,” Google said in a statement.

The new feature will reflect fares based on the official fare model shared by the Delhi Traffic Police, it said.

The latest version of the application includes enhanced voice input.

This feature will be available in the Google Maps app on the Android devices.

The idea is to incorporate one of most commonly used modes of public transport in Google Maps and share transparent information about the price of journey, Google Maps Product Manager Vishal Dutta said.

“Currently, for an unfamiliar journey, commuters often overpay and don’t have an idea about the distance or best route,” he added.

Dutta said the feature will also help the users plan their journey better.

“…so they could look at the expected cost of the auto-rickshaw ride and decide whether they want to take it all the way, or perhaps take a different mode of transport instead — like a bus or the metro,” he explained.
