Top Five Job Sectors in India

IT and ITES:


Till the mid-1980s, IT & ITES as a sector barely existed. Computer science was a subject pursued only by the elite in engineering colleges. Then Y2K happened and Indian companies began recruiting engineers, even those from the non-IT segment, as poorly paid programmers to execute projects for their overseas clients.

It hasn't stopped since. Computer science has now become the hottest subject in educational institutions-from universities to IITs to even B-schools that are offering specializations in IT and systems.

The sector's growth story has been truly impressive. Touching $15.9 billion (Rs.67, 000 cr.) in 2003-4, the industry's contribution to India's GDP has risen from 1.4 per cent in 1998-99 to over 3 per cent now.

By 2008, the sector would be contributing 7 per cent to the GDP and 35 per cent to the exports. But the industry's significance in India's job market lie much beyond these numbers. With 8.5 lacs workers, the IT & ITES sector has a small employee base.

But in the past couple of years, it has been setting benchmarks for jobseekers and India Inc. Learning from the IT sector, corporate India is aggressively globalizing and tapping the exports market while adopting world-class employee management systems. The five-day week schedule, offices equipped with cafeterias, lounges and gyms, dollar salaries, overseas assignments-jobseekers from various sectors are getting a taste of the standard the IT sector has set.

Thankfully, this good news is no longer limited to the high-end white collar jobseekers. The buoyant BPO sector is absorbing English-speaking graduates in the thousands. In 2005, IT & ITES will be the biggest job generator, creating more than 2.75 lacs jobs. India's huge cost advantages with quality assurances and large pool of skilled manpower will keep the going smooth. More than 250 of the Fortune 500 firms outsource their IT needs to India. There is more growth in store.

It does not have the glamour of the IT world. Nor does it have a sizzling growth story like the telecom. But here's a turnaround story that nobody thought would ever happen. Three years ago, the Rs.1, 86,000 cr. textile and garment industry was known more for its problems than its opportunities.

True, the sector accounts for nearly 4 per cent of India's GDP and accounts for about 20 per cent of its earnings. With 83 million workers, it employs close to 8 per cent of the country's population. Yet, the textiles sector rarely made news in the job market. It looks like this all is beginning to change.

Industry estimates for 2005 make it the second largest job-generating sector after IT & ITES. After the removal of country-specific quota on garment exports from January 1, 2005, the industry has been hit by a wave of hope. The sector is undergoing an overhaul.

Export orders have surged. Post-quota regime, big Indian exporters are ramping up production as they expect no global buyer would want to put all its eggs in the China basket. It is estimated that annual exports will $13.5 billion (Rs.60, 500 cr.) to $50 billion by 2010. The industry is expected to make investments of Rs.18, 000 cr. in the next 12-18 months and create 12 million jobs (direct and indirect).

Thankfully the government is waking up now. It is considering flexible labor laws for the garment sector. Most textile and garment companies are on a recruitment spree. Orient Craft, which hired 3,500 people in the past two years, is looking at far bigger numbers in the next two years.

Headhunters and placement companies which rarely handled mandates from textile firms are setting up dedicated teams to manage their needs. What is interesting is that besides offering well-paying jobs, the industry offers plenty of blue-collar jobs as well. The only flipside: not-so-professional work environment. But improvement is on the cards.

India has the eighth largest telecom network in the world with an estimated size of 9 dollars billion

Name it and they have it. Here is a sector that has a job for virtually everyone-well-paid MBAs to plan their business growth, English-speaking graduates for their customer-care back office, low-end blue-collar workers for laying telecom networks, sales and marketing executives for pushing sales and engineers for the upcoming manufacturing and maintenance jobs.

The good news is that such a broadband growth story will continue in the future. It wasn't so in the 1990s when an extremely regulated sector with the PSU monopoly grew at a snail's pace thanks to high tariffs and choked infrastructure.

With privatization and dramatic policy initiatives, the sector has witnessed a virtual turnaround over the past decade. Tariffs have tumbled. Local mobile calls costRs12per minute in 1995 and long distance over Rs.40 per minute. Today, it costs less thanRs.3 per minute for calls to any part of the country. Growing at 20 per cent, telephone connections grew from 27.53 million in 2000 to 93 million by 2004. Tele-density has gone up from 2.86 per hundred people in 1999-2000 to 8.5 now.

Today, India has the eighth largest telecom network in the world with an estimated size of $9 billion (Rs.40, 000 cr) and is expected to touch a high of $23 billion by 2010. Such a sharp growth has led the telecom companies to hunt for talent across all sectors. One can get brilliant customer-support staff from the hospitality and BPO sectors, sales executives from FMCG, systems experts from the IT sector and engineers from the manufacturing sector.

This offers a great opportunity for jobseekers to work with people from diverse background. But like the IT and services industry, here is a caveat. Since it is a very technology-led sector, obsolescence of skills is very high. "To ensure employability people will constantly need to update their skills," says Steve Correa, chief human resources officer, Hutchison Essar.

In the past two years, the retail loan market has grown over 100 per cent Every time you take a loan-home, vehicle or personal. Every time you use your credit card. Every time you buy an insurance policy, a share or a mutual fund. Through each of these transactions-and many more-you create a demand for one or the other financial services.

And that demand invariably translates into a job in one or the other financial services. Nowhere is this growth more visible than in the consumer banking industry where the number of savings accounts has gone up exponentially. ICICI Bank, for example, has seen its depositor base grow from six lakh in 2000 to 1.1 cr in 2005.Bank branches have become modern, and automation has taken over big time with banks across the spectrum installing ATM machines for cash withdrawals.

The erstwhile credit averse-country has seen a sharp growth in consumer lending since 1999 when the interest rates started dipping. In the past two years, the retail loan market has grown over 100 per cent from Rs.44, 100 cr in 2001-2 to Rs.1, 00,000 cr in 2003-4 and is expected touchRs.1, 34,000 cr by March 2005. The biggest surge has happened in home loans which comprise close to 47 per cent of the pie.

The credit card base has grown in tandem, touching 12 million by 2004-end as against 0.3 million in 1990. The insurance sector has been a new growth story. It is estimated that 700 insurance agents are being added every month by the industry. But better still is the fact that liberalization has also altered the landscape of the jobs the sector offers.

The demand for sales, marketing and call-centre executives is enormous. Headhunters estimate that 40 per cent of the new hiring is for sales people. The small breed of investment bankers, relationship managers and deal makers are among the best paid and the most sought after in the job market today.

India is the second largest emerging retail market in the world after China. Retail can be considered as a great job opportunity. Most middle-class Indians would have sneered at the thought of retail as a preferred choice for a career. And it is not without reason. Retail in India has largely been-and still is-an unorganized sector and the jobs it offered were never respectable, well-paying or inspirational. For the educated, middle-class Indians, becoming a sales agent or a merchandise manager was not an option to be considered.

All that has changed in the past five years as professional organizations have got into the fray in every segment. From coffee shops like Barista to grocery stores like Sabka Bazaar, food chains like McDonald's to fashion stores like Westside, gadget retailers like Sony World to fitness accessory sellers like Reebok, organized retailing is growing rapidly both in size and respectability. The retail industry has been booming.

According to retail expert KSA Techno Park, the industry has grown more than five times in as many years. From Rs.5, 000 cr in 1999 to Rs.28, 000 cr in 2004, India's organized retail market has made a giant leap. The total retail market is pegged atRs.8, 75,000 cr and a 2002 estimate puts employment at 42 million. Experts say the sector creates 1.4 million jobs every year. It is expected to grow by 25-30 per cent annually to touchRs.1, 00,000 cr by 2010.

A rising disposable income, changing lifestyles and growing consumerism will only bolster growth in retailing as is evident from the mushrooming of multiplexes, hypermarkets and malls. Over 100 malls are expected in Delhi and its suburbs in the next three years.

The national tally would go up from 20 to 900 by 2009. India is the second largest emerging retail market in the world after China. This is an employment-intensive sector. A rough estimate pegs the direct jobs offered by the organized sector at 50,000 and sees the boom spreading to smaller cities.

White Lies in Resumes

Lying in resume is a common game today which every one play while writing one. It is not a good idea. You may feel everything is fair is love and job and it is not morally wrong to lie, and perhaps a little white lie is perfectly ok. However, this notion is completely wrong. Lies have a way of snowballing. It's something you will have to pile it off because to hide one lie you will need to speak many more and it will put you in trouble. Lying on a resume is just plain dumb. The trend seems to be to check an applicant's references out more and more, unless you are a burger flipper. It’s not a good practice at all to lie in resume - even if it’s white lie because it is bound to twist the fact. There is a good possibility that it will come back to haunt you. Is it worth taking the chance of not getting a job or getting fired later on?. The best idea is to get real to write what exact you know, have been delivered till now and what you are capable off. There is no need to smart and frame all the lines made by you just for the sake of getting job, because even if you managed to get a job , but soon your higher authorities will get to know about your lies and soon you will be thrown out of job.

People who are educated and with intelligence can frame their resume in such a way that will show their strength and weaknesses will be overlooked. If you are in that category then prepare yourself in that way. Suppose you saw an advertisement of a job which is your dream job and you can do anything to get that job. But there is just one problem; they are looking for experienced person and though you know given a chance you will be able to do the job very well after getting some training but in reality you don’t have that particular experience so in that case write your cover letter that will show your enthusiasm, interest in that job, you will be better than others if they consider you as a candidate and this one honest statement will help you to get the job, instead of telling thousand of lies always. Sometimes jobseekers fudged the dates of last jobs to cover the resume gaps in continuity of jobs, which is completely unethical and illegal too. If there is any gap just address it honestly and admit your problem properly rather than creating bridge of lies.

Just be honest, be realistic and practical while writing resume and you will have a better future ahead.



What to Include in a Cover Letter

Cover letter is the descriptive version of the resume and there all the specific information about the job should be included. Your cover letter must consists of a information section where you will describe everything about your job, career, your qualification, after that it will have a contact section, a salutation and off course your signature.

Your cover letter should be different from others so the employer can get impressed you’re your description and therefore would like to call you for an interview.

When you are writing a cover letter to mail or to upload to a job board or company website, the first section of your cover letter should include information about your employment history. Try to focus on your strength that too in a narrative way and do not make it boring. Then give the contact number stating how the employer can contact you.  When you send an email cover letter, instead of giving your contact information in a listing manner include that in your signature.

It’s very important and a matter of seriousness to include an appropriate salutation at the beginning of the cover letter or message. If you have a name of the person to whom you can contact, always include their name in your letter.

The body of the cover letter is another most vital part of a cover letter or an email message while applying for the job is the body of your cover letter. The body of a cover letter will have the paragraphs where you are able to explain why you are interested in and qualified for the job for which you are applying.

When you're writing a cover letter to apply for a job it's important to close your letter in a professional manner.

But do not write an essay in the name of the cover letter as you are only describing your talents and positive sides and it should not taste the patience of the employer.

Job Growth in IT, Agriculture and Banking sectors in India

According to a new study conducted by the industry, body Assocham the key job creators in India this year would be the Information Technology, banking and agriculture industry.


"Information Technology (IT), pharmaceuticals, banking and agri-related industries such as farm equipment, fertilisers and seeds, will remain the largest employment generation sectors in 2014," the chamber said in its study.

However, the present state of the economy is not so good but these three fields will create lot of job opportunities in 2014. These three sectors in particular would remain the net aggregator of jobs in 2014, specially the IT sector will see the real boom this year as US economy is recovering.


The industry, body Assocham added, "The US economy is showing signs of improvement... A large number of American firms are expected to increase their IT spend as consumer sales pick up there and Continuous pressure on rupee will help increase the net income of IT companies and they will keep hiring”.

 According to the Assocham president Mr Rana Kapoor "Since our economy still remains a good mix of organised and unorganised, large corporate and small enterprises, a large number of people in rural India are dependent on agro based sectors or broadly agriculture  and tertiary industries; there are inherent and inbuilt strengths which come handy when the chips are down,".


Pharma sector will see its growth and will continue to hire in 2014. But as there has been  a setback in US and also due to more tightening of regulations in the US and some other markets overseas, the companies will have to invest more in improving their manufacturing and Research & Development. Also there is a good news on agricultural front that rabi crop has come back this year so agri based industries will do better this year.


"The positive spin off would be evident in a whole lot of industries which are directly linked such as tractor and farm equipment manufacturers, irrigation firms and those involved in developing and selling seeds and fertilisers", it said.

This year is expected to be a good one for banking sector; new job rise will be seen in 2014.  

"The NPAs would be reduced since the focus is very much there on the issue and there are signs of recovery in some segments of the economy. Besides, a huge number of backlog vacancies have to be filled up in public sector banks."

There is good news for the private banking sector, they will get new licenses before April; will throw up new job opportunities. While the new banks will leverage technology, job opportunities will arise both in brick and mortar as also in development and implementation of technology solutions.

Jobs in India

India is growing every day, every Indians who are studying in some colleges, studying IT, engineering or other courses, all of them dream with eyes wide open. This dream always helps people to reach to the target of professional goals. Though the unprecedented scenario of the current economic meltdown, where lay-offs are being tallied in millions, businesses are cutting costs drastically and employees are ungrudgingly taking salary cuts, but now jobs in India has found a new hike and job seekers’ career move and the accompanying promotion and salary hike seems like  not an exceptional case.

One can peruse his goal relentlessly, armed with the requisite credentials and skill sets. Businesses are still hiring, but now they are only looking for skilled and competent people and this is a hard reality.  This has happened because companies have become more realistic in hiring in comparison to the earlier exuberant plans and jobs in India are mainly available for the people who are truly deserving and talented. 

In an emerging economy, each sector holds vast potential for growth. The survey established that sectors like pharmaceuticals, IT/ITeS, FMCG, education and infrastructure, among others, are scaling up on the growth curve and are recruiting (See Table: Emerging Sectors). Industry experts agree. The information technology sector, which suffered a setback in 2008, is expected to look up this year. According to the National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM), the Indian IT-BPO industry will see sustainable growth over the next two years. "IT sector will see steady growth of 20% in the near future," says Goel. A recent forecast of Pharmexcil, the apex body of pharma exporters, says that the pharmaceutical industry is also expected to grow at 20%. In the interim budget, the government proposed to increase expenditure in various infrastructure schemes. It provided for a 72% increase in spending, from Rs 6,866 crore in 2008-09 to Rs 11,842 crore in 2009-10, under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. It also proposed to increase the outlay for Bharat Nirman programme by Rs 40,900 crore for 2009-10. Approvals are in for 37 new projects worth Rs 70,000 crore. 


Jobs in IT in India

There is good news for all the IT professionals in India or for all those who are the IT aspirants’ global economic scenario has been improving and a renewed wave of reforms are back in India, IT giant Infosys says” it is bullish over better growth prospects of IT sector in 2013 and expects greater job creation this year”.

"I believe 2013 to be better than 2012 for IT sector as globally lots of uncertainties have been removed, US elections are over, Europe is not going to split and people believe that it is going to stay together," Infosys Co-founder and Executive Co-Chairman told PTI here.

He was attending the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum along with the top executives of a host of other Indian IT firms such as TCS, Wipro, HCL and Mahindra Satyam-Tech Mahindra.

"When I say 2013 is going to be better, this means that growth opportunities for Indian IT industry are going to be better and that is what I expect," he said.

"That also means that more jobs will be created by the industry. 25 lakh people are currently employed by IT industry and even if you look at 10 per cent growths, then you are looking at 2-2.5 lakh additional people being hired by the industry and that is very good”.

Kris as he is popular in this name said that a clearer picture would emerge after Infosys and other IT firms announce their full fiscal results for 2012-13.

His view regarding the broader economic scenario was something like this, "Reforms that have happened in last few months have improved the sentiments, increased the confidence, and I expect the growth to reach 7 per cent or more in 2013”.

"This is a right signal to the investment community saying that we continue to emphasize on economic growth and on attracting investment and continue to focus on making sure that jobs are created with economic growth.”

"It's actually a very positive thing and the reaction that I am getting from the foreign investment community and the business leaders here is that they want this to be continued and sustained and I am hoping that we will see more announcements and more initiatives from the government and that will help us achieve a seven per cent growth and even more," he said.

S Gopalakrishnan, along with NR Narayana Murthy and five others, founded Infosys in 1981.

The other IT giants in India like TCS, Wipro and other companies, echoed his view. So, you should keep our fingers crossed and keep your resumes ready so that you don’t miss a single opportunity of getting the right jobs. In addition you must learn and try to gather knowledge as much as you can, because if you are not well prepared you may not get jobs in spite of innumerable number of vacancies in IT jobs.
