Read About IITTM
“Anything you do, I can do better” a very well known saying that comes to mind when we think about career.
The Indian job market is undergoing a process of resurgence, close to a million jobs are opening up this year. The Week’s - IMRB survey on hot jobs 2010, which covered emerging career options for beginners, comes up with the finding that 61 percent of employers are keen to recruit freshers or beginners.
With more and more vacancies being created and filled across sectors, the Indian job market is striking the right chord with the country’s working class.
Employment has featured as an important item in the development agenda in India. Approaches to the subject have, however, varied in different periods during the last over 50 years. In the initial years of development planning, unemployment was not expected to emerge as a major problem; yet care was taken to see that employment of a reasonable magnitude is generated in the development process to productively employ the growing labour force.
A reasonably high rate of economic growth combined with an emphasis on labour intensive sectors like the small scale industry was envisaged to achieve this goal. The rate and structure of growth rather than technology were seen as the instruments of employment generation.
IT, Banking and Telecom: are shooting up in the hiring spree, the jobs in these fields are in record numbers, they are providing a very friendly environment for the employee, thus increasing the work span of the employee in the company. Other sectors are also in the job market, but hold a different perspective.
Education, Training and Consultancy: India has the largest student population in the world with 13.5 crore children in primary schools. And this large body of students needs educational infrastructure and teaching staff. The country faces a shortage of at least two lakh schools. To plug the gap, investments are flowing in. We see a surge in education, especially in the private sector; vocational training, professional training, as well as growth in private schools have been aiding this momentum.
Energy generation & supply: Major projects are not expected to come on-stream this year. Bulk of the growth is likely to come from the city utilities. However, this sector is expected to generate many more jobs in the coming years.
Healthcare: Private healthcare boom continues notwithstanding the slowdown. Over the last 18 months, when most industries were busy restructuring operations, cleaning up books or optimizing their costs, Indian pharmaceutical and healthcare industry was adding manpower and giving salary increases. Next year looks bright with addition of many new hospital beds, deeper penetration of super-specialty healthcare, greater coverage of insurance facilities and increasing medical tourism.
Hospitality & Travel: India is expected to add about 15,600 hotel rooms in 2010. And by 2011, 40 new international hotel brands will be operational in India. Add to this, close to 415 projects or 68,480 rooms are under various stages of development and 41 per cent of these projects may start adding to existing inventory from 2010. This is not a small figure and even if one presumes a moderate figure of two people to service per room, the number of people that the sector will need to recruit is 32,000. Business travel is coming back to track and positive sentiments of consumers to spend on travel and tourism has been helping this sector sustain this momentum. This sector is likely to generate the 2nd largest number of jobs in the country in the coming days.
Real Estate & Construction: Smaller towns and suburban townships are growing with lower value housing. Infrastructure growth continues in many ways and appears to be accelerating. From unskilled site workers to highly skilled talent like engineers, foremen, crane operators, project managers and architects, this sector is expected to explode with new jobs.
Transport, Storage & Communication: Economic growth will push transport forward and new jobs will get created in this segment. Storage is yet not on a high growth path. Communication sector policies such as 3G introduction are likely to aid the growth creating new jobs. This sector however has been improving its operational efficiencies in many ways thus, not creating jobs in proportion with the sector growth.
Auto sector, light engineering, minerals and metals are expected to show some resurgence. Recent trends of increasing sales of automobiles and consumer goods are testimony of this growth. SSIs still appear to be cautious, still impacted by liquidity constraints. This sector has enhanced its productivity levels and optimized costs over the last year. The year ahead will witness growth in jobs and change in hiring trends. We will see hiring more freshers and people with specialized skills. So it is important to think of the right career and make this choice today. The foundation to a great career lies in the right education, but to choose the right education, we need to see the bigger picture and find out for ourselves - which sector would "I" fit in best?
