    How are the job opportunities in Pune or Mumbai as compared to that in Kolkata especially IT jobs?


    Looking for a change in your career with a shift to the IT sector as well as relocating to a city in Maharashtra? You could check out the feedback provided at this Ask Expert page to know if there are good IT job prospects in Pune, Mumbai or Thane.

    I completed B.Tech. EE from Kolkata in 2017. After working in an industrial automation panel manufacturing company in Kolkata in 2018, I went to Pune in 2019 and after trying there to search for jobs in a few months, I got one opportunity in Thane district in a PLC-based control panel manufacturing company in June 2019. Recently I lost this job because of COVID-19 and I had to return to Kolkata this year because of the pandemic. I also realized that a factory job is not suitable for me. I have an interest in data analysis, AI, and ML. I am preparing for a job role as a data analyst. Is it worth searching for this job role at the entry-level in Pune or Thane/Mumbai?

    Some general information for wanting to seek a job there - During the one-year stay in Maharashtra both in Pune and Thane, I was fond of the culture of Maharashtra, food, and people of Maharashtra, as well as the weather (except summer and monsoon), which is much better than my state West Bengal and other states I visited. I was also fond of the scenic view of Pune and Thane such as the beautiful Pune Mumbai Expressway, hills, and mountains in Thane and Pune district, and also several sea beaches in Mumbai within a few kilometers radius which I don't even find in West Bengal other than Digha, Darjeeling and small hills at Puruliya. I found that the people of Maharashtra are adjustable and humble and don't quarrel over small things which is exactly the opposite in Kolkata and West Bengal as per my observation. Therefore I loved the places and culture in Maharashtra and had a plan to stay and settle there. Moreover, I have a rented a flat at Bhiwandi near Thane with a rent of Rs.7000 per month, and my father government service employee) is paying the rent.

  • Jobs are generally company wise and it is difficult to pin point jobs as place wise. Still there are some industries which are crowded in some part of the country. For example in the field of general business trading of commodities even Kolkata is a good market. If you consider IT and related scopes then Bangalore, Hyderabad, and some cities in South Indian states are better destinations. At the same time in electrical goods and other such assemblies, Delhi would be a better place to search for a job. Mumbai, Pune, Thane is also good from the point of IT, some select industries and some new technologies. So this is only a general point of view and is not going to help much in job hunting so what I would suggest is that register in some of the good job portals like Naukri, Monster India, Indeed etc. This will help you to get updated about the openings especially in the area of your interest that is data analyst. Go through all the offers in these sites which match with your expectations and apply there.

    Another thing is that there are some consulting agencies which charge fees but guiding in details for a career or even help in getting some job of choice. They have a lot of networking and some people are benefited by their service in this matter. You can go through more details about them and whichever appears suiting to your requirement you can register there for the help in getting a job. Do not pay any fee beforehand as we do not know how reliable they are but if you are satisfied with their services you can pay the fee later if they agree for such an offer from your side. Some of these consulting services are CFT Consulting, Kelly Services India, Reflik, Ma Foi Randstad Placement Consultants, Atheva Service, Team Lease, Covent Informatics, TVS Allegis Job Placement Consultants, Contiq Global, Genius Consultants Limited, and Adecco India.

  • Very sorry to have heard that you have lost your job you were doing in Thane due to pandemic situation and at present you are in Kolkata having no job at this moment. This is a pandemic phase and this has affected many capable youths in securing right jobs matching their qualifications and experience. However, you have to proceed with an optimistic note and you may take the following activities so as to get an assignment of your interest -
    1) There are several portals such as Naukari.com, Monster India, Times of India.com etc helping you to get a job of your interest. However, prior to applying, you have to fix your mind which type of job, you would like to persue. In case of data analytics, collect feed back from your known colleagues how best you can update your knowledge so as to get a gainful,employment.
    2) There are some paid consultants offering you a job on a guarantee basis but you have to take adequate care not to pay any money in advance. They accept the money once you are employed. Some of such consultants are Genious Consultant Ltd, Kelley India, Reflik etc.
