Job Opportunities In The IT Industry

piIndian IT sector is one of the rosy sectors that have managed a steady pace of growth in the past few years. After the IT boom in the Indian software industry in the 1990s, more & more IT businesses were established which subsequently spearheaded a demand for qualified techno-savvy manpower. In recent years, software exports have accounted for a considerable share of the total Indian exports & have also contributed greatly to the GDP.

While initially the IT industry was concentrated around Bangalore, Delhi & Mumbai, lately the focus has shifted to other cities like Hyderabad, Kolkota & Pune. Many reasons can be attributed for this. Some of the most common reasons stated are the abundance of engineering and IT colleges in & around these regions.

These locations are also the hub of upwardly mobile professionals.
