The rising costs of higher education with lowering rates of unemployment has made academicians and students raise doubts about the advantage of pursuing such higher education in spite of we being wrong in accepting that education is worth it only if it has a commercial value. In a country like India there is no doubt that many pressures are at play when it comes to analysing the role of education in creating employability. Employability, however one should remember just not mean getting a job. It is more about developing the attributes, techniques or experience which would enable a student to get a job and when placed progress within the same thereby building a career and in due course ensure career development. Thus it would require learning with a lesser focus on ‘employ’ and more focus on ‘ability’. This study focusses attention on knowing the type of career related information made available by students, practical experience and exposure provided to students, key skills and competencies developed among students through career oriented activities, type of direct career help expected by students from their institutions and know expectations of students with respect to their career development from their respective institutions. The results of the study show large gaps between what is desired and what is provided.
