Be Happy – India Welcomes You in 2010 With Open Arms

It is heartening news to everyone that recession is receding all over the world – somewhere it is faster and in some countries, it has slower pace. But it is receding. In India, the pace of growth which had slackened as a consequence of the recession in other parts has picked up. The reports from Engineering and business school campus recruitment show that the stage is set for a faster growth in the New Year 2010 to make you happy by early accomplishment of your dreams for a good settlement.


The Healthcare sector is an area of assured growth. India has virtually become a medical hub for cheaper treatment even for the complicated diseases. The increasing number of healthcare jobs is directly attributable to the incoming tourists for treatment as well as the large population, the entry of an increasing number of private healthcare providers, better spread of health insurance, increased life expectancy and the rise in health awareness among the common people. Hence, qualified and experienced doctors, surgeons, medical and surgical specialists, dentists, physiotherapists, nurses, occupational therapists, para-medical staff and other health professionals are in good demand. Consequently, there is also an expansion in the number of administrative and support roles that need to be filled. With more and more health and hospital management courses/programmes and institutes coming up, both medical and non-medical graduates can seek opening through this sector.


Biotechnology, genetics, biomedical engineering, energy technology and nanotechnology are the various inter disciplinary choices worth exploring or looking up. If you have the ability, passion, enthusiasm for higher studies and research, BTech (Biotech) and BSc (Biotech) programmes are popular with students who have completed their +2 exams. Engineering aspirants are showing keen interest in power/energy, oil and gas engineering and allied disciplines. Also, youngsters are getting serious about tapping the emerging opportunities in the field of nanotechnology.


This industry is growing up at a faster pace with increasing opportunities in the clinical research, drug development, marketing and distribution with increasing demand by the Healthcare Sector. Aspirants in this particular field should be aware of the fact that BPharma/MPharma postgraduate programmes in clinical research/bioinformatics or MBA Pharmaceutical management could accelerate one’s career in this specific field.


BPOs are hiring perhaps more circumspectly graduates of different disciplines based on their skills, voice and communication skills. Knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) is an extension of business process outsourcing for professionals in a range of fields.

Legal Process Outsourcing is expected to grow fast due to a significant cost advantage in India. It is estimated that about 78000 jobs are likely to be generated by 2015. At present, the processes being outsourced to India include patent application drafting, legal research, pre-litigation documentation, advising clients, analysing drafted documents, writing software licensing agreements and also drafting distribution agreements.


As far as science or engineering graduates with a law degree are concerned, patent law practice is an emerging field that is worth exploring. However, becoming a patent agent or examiner does not require a law degree. But a strong science or engineering qualification is imperative.


The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education as mandated by the 86th amendment to the Constitution of India envisages free and compulsory education to all children in 6-14 age group. Accordingly the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) for the Universalisation of Elementary Education (UEE) which will be implemented in coordination with the state governments will provide for more schools, taking into account those inhabitations where there are not any schooling facilities.

It will also strengthen the existing school infrastructure and ensure basic amenities with additional class rooms, toilets, drinking water, maintenance grant and school improvement grants. Trained teachers, equipped to handle the emerging challenges of a changing education system would therefore be more in demand.


Developing India’s infrastructure is imperative. While national capital, Delhi is undergoing massive transformation and enhancement for the Commonwealth Games 2010, huge infrastructural projects (airports, railways, roads etc.) are coming up across the country. Construction project management and allied activities are popular career options today.

However, it is not only the technical and engineering professionals who are enthusiastic about the opportunities. Service and equipment providers in these sectors, managers, accountants, trained and untrained labour, technicians, surveyors and various other professionals and personnel are all keen to make the most of a range of new openings.


The Commonwealth Games will enhance tourist inflow to lead to better and more openings in the field of tourism, hospitality, sports/event management and allied services. Professional services would also be in demand across all levels – from that of hotel management and culinary arts to experienced chefs and waiters backed by skilled certification schemes of the National
Council for Hotel Management & Catering Technology.


Every emerging economy requires a lot of proper accountancy of the earning and expenses. Same way, India provides accountancy, banking and insurance as the evergreen and popular career options. Last year banking sector had bumper recruitment and it is expected that it would continue in the New Year 2010 as well. Since barely 10% of the Indian population have the privilege of health insurance, there is a strong potential for growth and jobs in health insurance sector.


Media and entertainment continue to rule the career popularity charts. Demand for jobs in mass communication, broadcasting, advertising and public relations or media management programmes is gradually increasing among undergraduates and graduates.


Green careers like environmental conservation, energy efficiency, energy management, renewable energy generation or recycling and waste management and reduction are being more and more popular with growing awareness about the global warming. +2 or college graduates from all fields get interest in these areas. While the bulk of the choices are science and technology oriented, working for non-governmental organizations is also good option.


According to the CII-Ernst Young Report titled India 2012 Technology growth continues.” India’s telecom services industry revenues are projected to reach US$ 54 billion in 2012 up from US$ 31 billion in 2008. The Indian Telecom Industry registered the highest number of subscriber additions at 15.84 millions in March 2008 – it is a global record. Engineering graduates from telecommunication, electronics, and communication engineering and allied disciplines are eager to join this sector. Similar enthusiasm was observed in IT Sector. MBA (telecom) is a popular choice for engineering graduates.


According to the estimates of ASSOCHAM Business Barometer (ABB) by the year 2010 retail business will cross figure of US$ 21.5 billion with 2000000 jobs will be up for grabs in the retail sector. MBA in retail and post graduates diploma programmes in retail management are getting popular.


To accomplish your dreams, you need to be better equipped with education and more flexibility to respond to the changed circumstances, increased knowledge and skills of the existing range of jobs. You need to have life long skills development choice for a good and happy life for ever.
