The latest technological trends is changing faster than the academic curriculum. The market requires highly skillful work force that academics (except few premier technology institutions in india) are not able to produce. The demand for skilled professionals is at an all time high.

One need to assess self, identify strengths/weakness and build competency in prefered field within engineering field. Skillful, knowledgeable and effective professional always get right job at the end.

Hope I have partly answered your question. If you have any other queries, feel free to ask.

Dear Aspirant,

Your question is absolutely a very good question.

Reason why lot of engineers are not able to get a good job are as below:

  1. Lack of English language competence. 97 percent of engineers in the country cannot speak English, required for high-end jobs - The National Spoken English Skills of Engineers Report 2015

  2. They do not understand and try to know what exactly Employability means.

Employability' in simple terms means the skills & education qualifications which helps a person to remain in demand, industry relevant, be capable, be adaptable, be flexible with the right behavioral, communication, inter-personal skills required for facing the challenges of the real practical world

  1. They lack in the below skills which are utmost required to be a good employee:
    Good Communication Skills
    Inter-personal skills
    Problem solving skills
    Demonstrating initiative
    Being self-motivated
    Being able to work under pressure and meet deadlines
    Organisational skills
    Team-work
    Ability to learn and adapt
    Numeracy skills
    Computer skills

  2. Expect salary according to the degree and not competence
    Switch jobs within 1-2 years
    See office colleagues as competitors rather than team members
    Write a Bio-data instead of Resume / CV
    Fail to read business newspapers to enhance business awareness

Best regards
