January 12th, 2013

Due to the large population of India, it is really very difficult for an individual to find a job in here. But due to the phenomenal development of the IT sector in India there is a large hub of jobs in India available in that sector.

If we consider both non-profit and profit activities, the contribution of the IT and IES sector has been really phenomenal as far as the last decade is concerned. It has resulted in the ride of GDP, employment generation and foreign exchange earnings as well which can surely not be neglected.

The IT sector has a really bright future not in India but even abroad. The IT sector requires talented and multi skilled people which helps then bag a job not only in IT sector but makes them fit for other domains as well. Information Technology is one of the most diverse and a really dynamic industry.

The IT industry is and always has been the largest employer all over the nation. One of the edges of this sector over the others is that it provides a chance to the talent in non-metro cities to move forward and prove themselves useful for the nation’s progress. As far as the figures go, almost 30 % to 50 % of the IT employments are from the non-metro cities.

The IT sector has a peaking growth rate, especially in India. The number of people employed by the IT sector has increased from 670,000 to 2,572,000 in the last decade itself which is evident that the IT sector serves a lot when it comes to employment opportunities. And this sector is anticipated to grow even more within the next 5 to 10 years significantly.

The most popular and key recruiters in the IT industry as far as India is concerned are:

  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • Cognizant
  • Accenture
  • Microsoft
  • IBM
  • Dell
  • Oracle
  • Tata Cons.
  • Wipro
  • Infosys

The main areas of specialization in the IT industry are enlisted as follows:

  • Operating Jobs, Computer Operators and Data Entry which does not require any particular and specialized training mostly.
  • Database Warehousing and Management.
  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
  • EDP / E – Commerce.
  • Application Programming.
  • Networking.
  • System Development, Programming and Software Engineering that requires a specialized training and skills.
  • Maintenance Services.
  • Computer Manufacturing.
  • Product Quality Control and Reliability Testing.
  • Research and Development for Peripheral Integration.
  • Designing.
  • And many more domains which are not possible to enlist all here shortly.

The salary packages offered by the IT industry are pretty much just and encouraging for an individual to opt for and grow in this field. But the major problem here is that the availability of engineers and software professionals is way more than the requirement by the Information Technology industry. As a consequence of which the IT sector is not able to hire all the equally talented and interested professionals every single time. Also some of the times, the interested candidates do not have a full and in-depth knowledge required in the IT sector and are not able to meet the requirements and standards of the IT industry. There are some really basic skills such that communication skills and soft skills that should at least be focused on by the interested candidates and will help them a lot not only in the IT industry but wherever they tend to go later on in their lives. Just emphasize on all these areas and you will be definitely able to succeed ahead in your life for sure.

The IT / IES industry promises you that there are ample job opportunities there and if you have the proper skill set, it has much more to offer to you.
