The IT Sector In Kerala And The Progress Boom In Its Job Opportunities
Despite the pandemic, India’s workforce remains hopeful about the future of employment, according to a research, with a large number of professionals contemplating shifting careers this year. LinkedIn, the world’s largest online professional network, released fresh job-seeker data on January 18, 2022, revealing that 82% of professionals in India are contemplating a career move in 2022.
The poll found that professionals are leaving their present positions owing to a lack of work-life balance, a lack of money, or bigger career goals, based on the replies of 1,111 professionals in India. Flexible working conditions will be a top concern for professionals in India when seeking for new jobs in the new year. People are rethinking their jobs and looking for new work prospects in response to their increased sense of purpose and objectives in life as a result of the epidemic.
Due to Covid-19, at least two out of every three job applicants in India are considering a career change. Professionals in India are looking for methods to advance their careers and enhance their abilities. According to the Amazon Job Seeker Insight Survey, over 90% of respondents stated they are interested in acquiring new skills.
In India, job applicants are concerned about the job search process for the first time. About 51% of job searchers want to pursue possibilities in sectors where they have previously worked. When looking for a job, 55% of professionals say remuneration is one of the most important factors they consider. Following the epidemic, job security is a top issue for 56% of them. When seeking a career, chances to learn and grow are a top priority for half of the professionals (49 percent). When it comes to choosing a career, having a safe office environment is a top consideration for 47% of professionals.
In Kerala, for example, the IT business, which had not been operating very well before to Covid, has seen enormous growth this year. Following Covid, numerous organizations from the education and other sectors have been pushing ahead with digitization efforts. This has resulted in a significant reduction in employment opportunities in the IT sector.
In comparison to 2019, the year 2021 has seen the greatest surge in employment since the days of the IT boom. Though the IT business was in a bind shortly following Covid’s arrival, things started to improve as demand for IT professionals increased. This has also resulted in a large number of worldwide corporations contacting the IT sector for various services.
The sector has also seen a decrease in the migration of IT employees to Bengaluru, Chennai, New Delhi, and Mumbai, as more opportunities and greater wage prospects have led to many graduates preferring to stay in Kerala. The robust market revival and growth of the industry will benefit Kerala-based businesses. The neighborhood was home to the bulk of the state’s IT businesses who participated in this year’s Gitex Global 2021, Dubai, and international tech expo.
There was a time when recent engineering graduates had to spend months or years looking for jobs in our industry. However, circumstances have changed dramatically in recent years, as the need for experienced professionals has surged. This has been a huge relief for the business. International firms are pleased with how the IT sector in Kerala is operating, which has contributed to this economic development.
