How difficult is it to go back to work in India after a break?

Updated on : January 20, 2022 by Logan Stewart



How difficult is it to go back to work in India after a break?

The difficulty depends on the following factors:

  • What is the reason for the breakup
  • At what point in your career did you take the break?
  • Pause duration

In general, companies are more concerned with the skill you can offer the company (including previous experience in the skill set) and the extent to which it matches the job requirements. If a person meets these criteria, companies can negotiate the terms of compensation only by addressing the issue of work interruption, which sometimes has to be persuaded or persuaded by accepting your offer.

Depending on how you have planned the break, it could be easy or very difficult.

Option 1 (the safest) -

Take a sabbatical (unpaid leave) from your current employer.

Option 2 -

Resign from your current position, but agree in advance that you will be reinstated after your break.

A friend of mine has opted for this option and her employer said they would be happy to accept it if she decides to return. She was a high performer in a managerial role with good people skills. This could have been the reason.

Option 3: new job with delayed join date

Depending on how you have planned the break, it could be easy or very difficult.

Option 1 (the safest) -

Take a sabbatical (unpaid leave) from your current employer.

Option 2 -

Resign from your current position, but agree in advance that you will be reinstated after your break.

A friend of mine has opted for this option and her employer said they would be happy to accept it if she decides to return. She was a high performer in a managerial role with good people skills. This could have been the reason.

Option 3: new job with delayed join date

Get another job while working in your current position, and press the date of incorporation for the new job, resign your current position with the shortest notice period possible.

Make sure you transition from your current job correctly when planning your shorter notice period, as it is important not to burn any bridges when leaving an employer.

Join the new company after enjoying the break, perhaps with a higher pay package. :-)

Option 4: You have already left your job without getting another and are on the open market looking for a new one.

In India's mostly commodified IT industry job market, this is the riskiest option, unless it's really good.

Most hiring department human resources are risk averse and a hiatus in their employment could raise suspicion and sometimes their profile may not even be shortlisted. Depressing, but sadly true.

There are too many people competing for a low number of vacancies, the competition is high.

So what do you need to stand out and still get a job after your break?

1. Great ability to speak and relate to people: power of conviction

2. Certifications in your area of ​​expertise

3. Evidence from published white papers and conferences you attended (if you are seeking a senior position)

4. Evidence of cool things built or competitions won, on GitHub, TopCoder, etc.

5. Evidence of participation in the official user community in your area of ​​expertise. Some examples are SAP Community Network, Oracle forums, MSDN, etc.

I wish you the best!

No,

  • It is not at all difficult to find a job in India unless you have the ability to do that particular job.
  • If a person is unable to do a particular job, they will not get a job anywhere in the world, not just in India.
  • Obtaining a graduate degree is not a big deal in today's world. Although people are leaving college with good grades, communication skills are a barrier to finding a job.
  • Do you really think that a company that interviewed you will reject you if they think you are fit for the job? No company will leave a person who has things.
  • There are many hoop jobs

  • There are many jobs around you, all you need to do is find the one that suits you best.
  • POPULATION is not a big deal, don't blame India for having a high population rate, I'm sure a person who meets the job criteria will definitely get it.

Let's take an example, there are 100 engineers who graduated from X university, do you really think all 100 are really ready to take engineering jobs? Just think about your class, are all your classmates on the same page? out of every 100 students, only 10 are those who will have a good knowledge of the subject. Rest everyone, just come in. Would a company that invests so much money in employees be willing to hire the remaining 90?

Example 2: If you are an employer and you do interviews (you have 100 openings), there are 100 members who come to the interview with the same college degree. You find out that out of those 100 only 10 are able to get a job, will you go ahead and hire the 100 or will you just hire the 10 talented ones?

THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES AROUND, YOU MUST BE THE RIGHT PERSON TO TAKE ONE.

Earning a college degree does not qualify you for a job.

An apprenticeship:

People out of work, don't be offended by reading my answer. I have friends who were born and raised in villages without a medium level of ENGLISH, but they were good academically and had a very good knowledge of the subject. Today they are working with good companies and one of them even earns more than me. I used to have the misconception that a man cannot get a good job without communication skills, after this I think that success depends entirely on INTELLIGENCE, HARD WORK, KNOWLEDGE.

Talent cannot be hidden, talented people will not go unnoticed. If you can't get a job, ask yourself (Why can't I get it?) Instead of asking (Why is it hard to get a job in India?).

Now if you want to do (Why am I not getting a job?) This question, here is my answer: I am 23 years old and I have never had a job, what should I do? There is something wrong with my?

Thanks :)

You can? Yes.

Want? It depends on so much ...

First, to get a work visa, the H1B, you will need a company willing to sponsor you. You must have 12 years of documented professional experience or a minimum of 4 years of college.

The problem is that there are not enough visas for applicants, so if you do not have a master's degree from an American university, which gives you preference, you will have a 1 in 3 chance of getting the visa. This means that companies now give preference to people with master's degrees from American universities (which is exactly the point).

So the requirements really are:

So the requirements really are:

  1. Find a company willing to hire and sponsor you
    1. Many companies advertise for jobs and say "no sponsorship opportunities."
  2. University degree or minimum 12 years of documented professional experience
  3. Have a master's degree from an American university.
    1. If you don't, you will have a one in three chance of getting the visa, and most companies are unwilling to accept those odds.

Or you can get a job at a company that is based here in your own country and see if they are willing to transfer it to the headquarters. It is a less risky visa.

Finally, the other option is to marry a resident (green card holder) or a US citizen. They can sponsor you for residency and then you can work wherever you want.

Since your question is not clear in what domain or field you want to know about job prospects, I will try to give my answer in general.

There are many ways to get a job with no experience and with a degree, listing a few:

  1. On-Campus Placements - This is one of the easiest ways, especially if you are studying at Elite University. Every year multinational companies and startups come onto campus and recruit freshmen from related fields.
  2. Off Campus: If you are not lucky enough to find a job through campus, there are a plethora of websites where you apply for jobs and show up for an interview to find out more.

  3. Employment Testing - This is an effective way to stand out from the crowd of inexperienced job seekers. E litmus, AMCAT, CO-Cubes are good platforms that give you the opportunity to appear in the interview of good companies if you score well in these tests.
  4. Online challenges: this is specific to technical roles mainly. There are online platforms that access candidates' problem-solving and scheduling skills and, based on performance, invite you into the interview process. Hacker Rank and Hacker Earth. They are widely known websites where you can not only participate in the challenge of an interview, but you can also hone your skills by practicing technical problems.
  5. Through the Help of some Institutes: This option is also valid only for technical and engineering jobs. Today there are many online platforms such as Ninzas coding where you can enroll in a course of your skill and after successful completion placement support will also be provided to you.

If you are willing to pay some amount, there are also many options like Interview Bit where you can enroll in a course with prepaid or postpaid option and then these institutes will guarantee your work base, you have to pay only if you want to get a job. of some minimal package, for example. 6 LPA. If you can't get a job with a decided minimum package, you don't need to pay anything.

Due to the increasing competition, it is definitely a challenge to get the desired job without experience, especially if you are not from elite universities, but it is not impossible. Today there are many platforms and options that give you the opportunity to show your talent, improve your skills and get a decent job.

All the best.

Through this account, you can view current job vacancies at the company and apply for your job of interest. The website also emails you about recruiting tours, if any, that match your skill set.

You can share your resume through your friends / family currently working at the company you want to work for and they can share it with their respective human resources. The employee reference is a reliable source.

If you want to go in person, you can always send your hard copy of the resume to a specific company that you are targeting.

You can create / update your profile on Linkedin, join job groups, it will also update you about current job vacancies, you can also join to create your profile on various job boards like naukri

After the social media boom, you can update your social media profile and follow specific workgroups or companies.

Newspapers may not be a good idea unless they are specific to just jobs. Most organizations avoid this as a source, as it involves huge costs.

The idea is to reach out through many mediums and not limit yourself to one.

You can participate in youth festivals, CSR activities, code contests, etc. made by various organizations and see it as an opportunity to seek employment.

Look for certification or small assignments related to your area of ​​expertise.

Get to know your academics, assignments, and work on your strengths.

Hope this answer helps.

In India there are many job portals that offer various functions. If you give an email notification, a resume, and good opportunities, then you lack data security. If you score the point in safety, you will miss some other point. So far, I have used more than 8-9 job portals myself, but have not received satisfactory services from anyone. But I recently visited a job portal, and believe me, it looks promising in every possible way.

· From great opportunities to an effective and attractive way to represent your profile to employers / candidates.
· From creating online resumes to uploading one in PDF / Word
· Video Resume Maker
· Apply via online resume, resume upload, and LinkedIn too.
I guess these many reasons are enough to at least give it a try.
Personally, I suggest you visit the stealjobs dot website at least once and you will see the difference for yourself.

It is also important to note that India's Logistics Performance Index is 54 out of 150 countries that require improvement, and the cost of logistics is high and the industry needs professionals to make the sector competitive internationally and domestically. With Prime Minister Modi's emphasis, the focus is on Make in India, infrastructure development is taking place at a faster pace with multimodal emphasis.
