  • Jobs are less and more qualified people are there in the country. How to create more jobs is a very big question now. Not only for engineers but also for other educated people also there are no jobs. Another problem we see these days is nobody wants to have filed jobs. All want a job in front of a laptop in an AC room. Even though there are many posts for engineers, they prefer IT jobs.

    You can try various procedures for getting a job.

    1. Register your name on or These two are very good almost all the recruiters will look at these sites for selecting a good candidate for their requirement. You will also get alerts and you can also select the jobs you want in this portal. You can also go through the various posts that are advertised on this site and you can apply for suitable posts.
    2. Other Job Portals. There are many portals for recruiting. You can register your name there and you may get good job advertisements from there also.
    3. On the India Study Channel, you have a job section. In that section, various jobs advertised elsewhere will be published. You can refer and apply for suitable posts. Similarly, you can refer to various newspapers wherein you will see various advertisements and apply for them.
    4. If you have any friends working in IT industries you can ask them to refer your CV to any suitable job and the chances of getting selected will be more here.
    5. Many government jobs are looking for your score in the GATE examination. So an Engineer can prepare well for this examination and get a good score. If your score is good you will get selected for government jobs.
    6. Walk-in interviews and recruitment drives are being advertised and you can see the details in the papers and accordingly you can attend.
    7. There are good placement agencies and they will also try for the jobs. Earlier days they used to charge money only after you got selected and some agents are not collecting any money from the candidates. The recruiters are paying them. But these are asking for some money for registration. If the agency is reliable and the charges are low you can pay and register. Otherwise, it is not advisable to pay and register there. You can promise them after getting a job and joining there.

  • Since the absorption rate of Enginners are slow due to sluggish demand in the various manufacturing industries and also in the IT companies due to less projects in their hands. However, such a grim situation should not frustrate the candidates opting for Engineering in the various streams, rather they should focus their goal in updating their knowledge in their streams so as to get lucrative assignments in MNC's. They need to be efficient in their communication skill as well to impress the employers.
    The following tips would prove to be helpful in getting a proper assignment -
    1) Make an attractive resume indicating your positive attributes in both your academic achievements and extra curricular activities. Year wise indicate your scorings reflecting your performance.

  • It is true that the demand of engineers is not commensurate with their coming out of the colleges and universities and that is creating a big unemployment situation. There are many recruitment agencies but they would only help as a conduit for application transfer from the candidate to the company and if the candidate is selected they would take their fee. Some of these are not reliable also. One has to be cautious on that front. Still, there are some avenues where one has to try to go ahead himself for making a career. Some of the measures are suggested as follows -

    1. Upload the CV in reputed job channels - This is one thing that is to be done as a primary means so that one can get all the job alerts by email. Theindiajobs, Naukri, Monster, TimesJobs, Jobket, Naukrihub, Careerjet, CareerAge etc are some of these sites.

    2. Apply for PSU entrance exam - There are many PSUs which take engineering radiates for their executive posts and every year they conduct exam for the vacancies. This is a very good opportunity for the engineers and one cannot only opt for his core area but also for other functions like stores, management, safety etc.

    3. Prepare for administrative services - Every year there are many administrative posts advertised by the central Govt or various state Govt. Though competition is tough in it but it is worth trying as it is considered as the top career today.

    4. Technical jobs in private companies - Many private organisations offer temporary jobs to the engineering graduate. But these jobs do not pay much. Fresh engineering graduates do not like to join such positions but for gaining experience it is not a bad idea. One should not shy away from them. It is only a step for future jobs.

    5. Teaching in coaching centres - As a stop gap arrangement one can also search for teaching in some coaching centre. This is good for revising ones own knowledge also which would be helpful in appearing in competitive exams.

    6. Join an entrepreneurship group - Many people have created their own entrepreneurship group and are engaged in different services. They take Mudra loan or other loans for their working. One can join a group of ones liking and learn the intricacies of business environment.

    i) Employment Exchanges: It is a set-up to bring both employers and job seekers looking for prospective jobs under one platform. The role of employment exchange is to register entries for job seekers and then send a notification to the registered members about the vacancies received from time-to-time as per the Employment Exchanges Act, 1959 that covers all institutions/organizations in public sector and non- agricultural establishments.

    ii) Educational Institutions / Campus Recruitment: This is the best and easiest way of getting a job of your choice with a fine salary and getting into a genuine company. Many colleges have a tie-up with reputed companies that hire qualified and ambitious students directly from universities, vocational schools/colleges and management institutes.

    iii) Professional Agencies / Placement Consultants: Many professional agencies provide their services to big and reputed companies for enlisting new people for jobs. They also have registration with a nominal fee wherein they provide new openings in companies and organizations at regular intervals as per your registered profile.

    iv) Advertisement / Telecasting / Web Publishing: It has become the most suited and used method wherein the vacancies for a said post along with job descriptions, job specifications, qualification required, experience, etc are printed in media like paper, shown on TV or put in website for widespread transfer of information and to receive applications from most suited applicants across country.
