The energy sector will be another sector to witness opportunities as lot of green field projects are taking off this year. The roles will be both in the new plants as well as maintenance roles in plants commissioned last year.

Electronics sector will be a mixed bag. While some areas like embedded systems development will witness hiring, other areas such as VLSI design will not find high hiring numbers.

The IT sector will remain the largest recruiter of fresh technical talent. We expect about 200,000 fresh technical graduates to get absorbed in calendar year 2011. This number is at the least 5 times the number of fresh engineers taken by any other single sector. Though there will not be a huge salary differential in IT sector, the large hiring number makes it one of the most promising sector for fresh engineers.

Let us take a more detailed analysis of opportunities in this sector.
