Hi guys, It seems Many Western companies are starting their bases in india. As indias operational cost is less and best man power. These days i can see almost 4 to 5 walk-ins every week in bangalore. Hope this trend comntinues every where --Sridhar
But I think attractive jobs are still rare in India.Mostly are customer support software/patchup types.Unless companies take interest in developing systems for Indian market, I don't think job market will change much.There is wide scope of developing software/hardware systems from scratch for Indian market.Farming is still done traditionally in many parts of India.Companies who boast they have 'brightest' people can contribute to this.Similar with linguistic softwares,India has 15 major state languages and few percent population speak/write english.Rest depend on local newspaper.Getting easy internet access and searching the information in google is miles away.

The main problem while dealing with clients from Indian market is the costing of the project. Not many indian clients pay well enough to recover the salaries of the ppl involved and other expenses. This typically results in very low profit. Hence, development for Indian market is mainly for Banking, few govrnment organizations, and big players. As for linguistic software for Indian market, there are few companies doing this. CDAC, Mithi are doing great job in this field. There are lot of sites in Indian languagges on the net itself. But, you are right about the availability of attractive jobs in India, they are still rare. That's why I was also surprised to know abt Banglore. - Manish
Thats right Manish.CDAC/NCST are doing commendable work.My point is if they want to do some thing big,they must change their policies.Common man should be at the center stage participating in this activities.But what we see in our research labs/institutes is bunch of people doing some weird work neglecting citizen. Lets be real.Country has 38 defence factories who claim to manufacture(?) arms and ammunitions.Despite spending millions each year for the last 55 years on defence sector,still these people ask the Govt to import some defence products from Poland/Russia etc. Same thing can be said about computers and related technologies.Here again there are arm chaired theoreticians enjoying Govt benifts for years in the name of doing some project.These people are far away from reality bcos of same reason of neglecting common man.
I will agree with manish and rahul. Even though India had lot of odds. Still IT is growing here. Because ofthe talent. At the same time talent is also killing point here. there lacks of Computer engineers are coming out every year. and job market is not growing in that phase...
It means our mission is in jeapordy! Quick, read this tiny ad!
