    Don't get me wrong but what choices does a student who has graduated recently have ?


    India's economy is going downhill from bad to worse to worst.There is hardly any job apart from a few handful in IT and Banking.

    There are close to no jobs for people who have studied core engineering like mechanical,electrical,civil etc etc because thanks to our government policy there is hardly any manufacturing in india.The few handful of jobs in core sector is taken away by extraordinarily genius people or those who know right palm to grease.Others stand no chance.

    There was no new job creation going on even when india was growing at 8-10%,so how does one expect jobs when India is faltering at below par levels of growth ?

    Besides Indian education is the mother of all substandard education system in the world which emphasizes on rote mugging rather than understanding the concept.As a result most graduates even after completion of their courses barely know anything about their subjects.


    And thanks to Indian government policy nobody is ready to invest in india or create a new industry or a plant.

    All in all for time being the future of india atleast for next 5-6 years look bleak and before the rupee tumbles to 70,80,90 rupees a dollar it's better to leave india for a better life abroad.

    Yes, if you think you are getting underpaid for your qualifications, you should make every effort to seek a career abroad. Then again, the demand for mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering is low the world over.

    What about Army, Navy, Air Force or govt jobs ? These are in fact stable and pay well too.

    That's strange. Because I see opportunities for talented individuals in this sector every day of the week. Of course, the sheer volume of engineers being churned out (we produce the largest no. in the world) means that only a fraction will achieve the jobs they seek.

    If you are open to alternative employment, like engineering consulting for example, send me a msg and we can share coordinates.

    There are jobs in Core Sector (PSU's and Private). It was always like this only, so don't blame your incompetence in finding a Job on Government.
    Also going abroad for MS/M.Eng is no solution for your woes.

    Those who want to emigrate should also have money to do so and sustain themselves out where they go.

    If they have no jobs and no money.

    End of story!

    Do you think the whole graduate population of india would end up joining military?

    And as far as govt jobs are concerned there are very limited seats of which 50% are reserved.

    Opportunities for talented individual is there everywhere but i am talking about a totally different subject.


    If a country produces XYZ number of graduates then it should atleast ensure job opportunities for them.But that is not the case in our country.

    Here we have 10-20 lakh people running after 10-20 jobs.


    Bottomline is that India does not create enough jobs and job opportunities for it's growing population because the govt has consistently neglected infrastructure development,industrial development or basically any kind of development and scared away investment and ruined the economy completely.


    As far as i am concerned i am self employed.


    Aree Bhai,i am not concerned about myself, i am more than capable enough to feed myself.I am talking about ordinary indians whose hopes and aspirations are being crushed by a callous government.

    I have repeatedly said time and again,there are jobs but not enough jobs for the people of this country.

    @CrYsls This is a great discussion.
    My take in short... yes, you should go wherever there's most opportunity and where your prospects are the brightest.

    I am very saddened to hear about India, and I wholeheartedly agree that the Indian government is largely responsible for the pathetic state of affairs. This is digressing a bit, but I honestly believe that one of the main reasons the Indian establishment does not invest in mass infrastructure projects or promote market liberalization, labor reform etc. is because the political class is afraid that they will lose their hold over economic activity.

    there's no denying that. But I'm just trying to understand your concern here. is it that you are concerned about those 10-20 lakh people or are you concerned about yourself? Because from your original post, I got that latter posture. there's a dearth of "skilled" jobs everywhere, maybe not as acute as in India, but it exists. If you believe you are a skilled individual capable enough to do a job better than most else, then why be scared of the competition?

    @CrYsIs .. go wherever you can have gainful employment. It all depends on you, going abroad is nothing wrong.

    More like, afraid to lose their vote-bank which is predominantly poor. They have vested interest to keep them that way. Here I'm referring to Congress & other assorted socialist parties.

    Oh absolutely, we are both referring to the same thing- yours being more detailed of course. "Socialist" politicians make their living by gorging funds meant for moribund "social welfare programs". Their "business model" if you will rests on two critical requirements.... 1) Perpetuation of poverty by blocking access to tools of social mobility and 2) engineering conditions that can be used to maintain a constant state of "outrage".

    Having said that I'm not sure if the non socialist parties are really offering a genuine solution because although their model of crony capitalism may seem ostensibly business friendly, it happens to be just as extractive and exclusive.
    The bottom line is that the entire spectrum of of the Indian political class seek to use their political power to maintain a tight hold over economic tools to enrich themselves and bestow favors upon their minions.

    The only question now is which is the lesser of two evils. My guess is that if the center right parties were to heavily mitigate or abandon their religious chauvinism and instead concentrate on pro business economic activity (even if it's crony capitalism) the chances of success are higher.

    lol bro there are lots of bakras in india.

    why do job when you can earn from business.
    well it's my final year and iam looking for some ideas to start a new business.
    india is full of bakras who will make money for you but only if you can manipulate them or in simple language handle them properly.

    if you are in big cities and you don't have no idea then move to tier 2 cities and apply old business ideas.
    hell a chaat wallah and chole bhature wallah has income more then a wipro software engineer or even the politicians. :gangnam:
