India’s IP-driven incubation lab, BridgeLabz Solutions LLP surveyed over 1500 fresh tech graduates and working professionals during the lockdown. The online survey intended to reveal top issues faced by engineers during the COVID-19 lockdown and how they are coping with them.
As per the survey, 71.95% of the respondents representing almost equal numbers of men and women are currently looking out for a job. When probed further, finding a job amidst the nationwide lockdown emerged as the top challenge for fresh tech graduates and experienced professionals with a majority of engineers, at 76.89%, presently bearing the brunt of the economic slowdown. It also shows that 24.92% of the working engineers who were planning to switch their jobs are currently stuck as the pandemic has affected the hiring process in organisations across the country.
In addition, the survey reveals some noteworthy patterns. It says, 15.53% of engineering graduates are struggling to stay relevant in the industry with their existing skillset. Thus, it can be concluded that the ever-evolving technological space and cut-throat competition requires constant up-gradation of the skills to survive in the industry.
