This paper presents an empirical study conducted to find out the role of pre-employment training in enhancement of employability. The study was specifically focused upon the automobile cluster employing the fresh engineering diploma holders. The universe of the study consisted of 26 such industries. Stratified random sampling technique was employed for drawing the sample classified into two groups: - 1) Managerial level and 2) Supervisory level consisting of engineering diploma holders. Standardized scales were administered to 572 Ss out of which 12 responses were dropped down, and 560 Ss were retained in the final sample put to experimentation. Descriptive and analytical research techniques were applied for the analysis of the data collected during the experiment. Statistical tools like ‘Cronbach alpha coefficient', ‘Pearson correlation coefficient', ‘Analysis of variance (ANOVA)' etc were employed for treatment of the collected data for drawing the useful conclusions and testing of the hypotheses. From the experimental analysis the employability of diploma engineers was found to be associated with pre-employment training. Such a study focused on the fresh engineering diploma holders employable by the industries has yet not been reported in the literature.
