Why is this tech job not for everyone?
Technical careers, which are the careers for people with technical skills, are not for every company.
It is a tough niche.
Many companies want people with a lot of technical knowledge and are not looking for a skilled worker who will help their business.
So, when it comes to the hiring process, they are very conscious of the fact that they are looking for people who have the right skills and experience.
“This is the reason why many companies don’t hire people with the right qualifications,” says Nandan Khandelwal, co-founder and CEO of Khandelsy, a social media management company.
“It is a big challenge when you have to work in a field like software, where people tend to be highly educated, and yet they do not have the required technical skills.”
That is why some companies choose to hire for specific roles instead of for the entire spectrum of technical skills.
“They don’t want to waste time and effort to find people with exactly the right qualities for the position,” says Suresh Khanna, an associate professor of business at Duke University.
Many of these companies have started offering training courses for people in these skills.
However, it is not always easy for a company to find qualified candidates for these jobs.
“Companies have started to look at hiring for specific skills and the more they are able to do that, the easier it is to find the right candidate,” says Mr Khanna.
In India, the IT industry is expected to grow by 6% in 2020, up from 4.5% in 2016.
According to a report by NITI Aayog, the Indian government, industry and IT ministry is trying to recruit a lot more people with different skills to fill these jobs, as the country faces a shortage of skilled people.
However in many parts of the country, the demand for these types of jobs has been met by companies with only very limited or no knowledge of technical fields.
According the IT sector in India, about 30% of the people in the country are employed in the IT sectors, compared to around 25% in the US and less than 20% in China.
So how can the demand be met in India if there is no demand for the technical jobs?
The challenge for a lot companies in the technology sector is finding qualified candidates.
In fact, many companies do not want to hire candidates who are only interested in technology or in specific technical fields, says Mr Khandelingwal.
“So, they have a limited pool of candidates.
We are not seeing this in India because we have a very competitive global market and we are a global company, which has a global business model.
This means that if we are looking at hiring candidates who have a particular technical skill, then we have to find a candidate that has a specific technical skill and has an interest in our product.
We have to think about the technical skills and how we can fit them into our business model.”
A key question that many companies have is how to attract candidates with these skills who are willing to work for less than their salaries.
“A lot of the companies in India are using a model where they offer a training course and then they offer to hire them on a part-time basis,” says Prof Khandela.
However the problem is, the companies have to convince these people that they will be able to make a decent salary if they are to become full-time employees.
Many IT companies are starting to use part- time work to attract more people to these jobs too.
“In India, there is a large number of part-timers who are working in this sector.
This is one of the reasons why many IT companies prefer to offer training courses and part–time work,” says Dr Khan.
It may not be easy for them to attract and retain the people who are interested in the particular technical skills that they have, but there are some tools that they can use to help them.
“There are some things that are being used that have some sort of social impact,” says Ramesh Rajagopalan, head of HR, technology, and operations at Infosys.
For instance, they can advertise their training courses on social media, or they can create a video or audio tutorial.
“If you do not know about a certain skill, you can share it online or on your personal social media pages.
People will find it easily.
There is also a tool that is being used in India called Geeks for Work, which is basically a tool to make it easier for people to connect to their company.
In some ways, we are seeing more and more companies trying to create their own social media platforms and create a social presence for their companies, which can help them attract people with this particular skill,” says Professor Khanna of Duke University, adding that these companies can also create a website and make it easy for their employees to find jobs.
In addition, there are companies that are offering training for specific fields.
Some of these services can be accessed through websites like LinkedIn
