Who is an NTAT Certified Intern and Why Hire One?
The dream of every organisation is to hire interns who are technically sound and require very little if any, training. However, this dream is in stark contrast to reality. How can companies find their dream interns who are passionate about pursuing an internship if all they have is a one-page resume as a judging parameter?
Well, by hiring an NTAT Certified Intern!
Who is an NTAT Certified Intern?
NTAT certified interns are students who have gone through on-site screening of skill evaluation through Switch Idea.
NTAT Score quantifies the employability skills of a candidate on various aspects including their domain skills, communication skills, aptitude and general awareness through a well-designed program.
In short, NTAT certified interns are passionate internship applicants whose skills are validated and evaluated thereby ensuring employers get access only to the qualified and verified interns.
Why Should You Hire an NTAT Certified Intern?
NTAT Certified interns go through Strict Background Verification
An NTAT certified candidate goes through a manual background verification. From the candidate's identity to his college associations, degrees, and everything in between is manually verified by Switch Idea Placement team. Not only that, but Switch Idea also maintains a comprehensive document bank of the intern's personal and professional documents, which is accessible to the employers. It saves a lot of time and effort needed for background verification and ensures that you have access only to the right candidates.
NTAT Interns are Domain Specific
Instead of settling down for an internship in any available domain, these students are very clear about their interest area and work to polish their skills in it. In addition to evaluation in logical reasoning, aptitude, and other sections, an NTAT verified intern also goes through evaluation in a technical domain of his choice. Thus, if you are hiring a Java intern, be assured of his skills in Java and so on.
NTAT Interns' Skills are validated
As an employer, you can be assured that an NTAT certified intern possesses all the skills mentioned in his resume/profile. There is no need to screen the candidates for skills saving you one more step in your journey to find qualified interns.
NTAT Interns are Academically Sound
NTAT does not allow students who have any year gap during their academic career thus ensuring that every NTAT certified intern is serious about his academic performance and is academically strong.
