They said, “At CGC, it has been our endeavour to provide world class education to our students while simultaneously honing their practical and soft skills to provide recruiters with industry-ready professionals. India Skills report 2018 has termed the hiring outlook for 2018 as positive and estimates it to rise by 10-15 per cent this year alone. This is a very promising scenario especially for job aspirants. Getting this award would only strengthen our resolve to enhance the benchmark of quality technical education being imparted at CGC and contribute towards making Punjab a promising talent pool provider for top job recruiters to hire from.”
