With employment prospects being generated by the private and public sector undertakings acquiring a newer dimension in the present-day industrial scenario, students should grab every opportunity by developing their skills in tune with the expectations of employers, said A.V. Krishnan, Executive Director, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) Tiruchi.
