Careers for BE/BTech or BA/BCom fresh grads

Are you struggling to find employment after graduation, engineering or an MBA? You’re not alone. If you see the statistics below you find that employment and employability is a challenge across the board. 

60% of the 8 lacs engineers graduating from technical institutions across the country every year remain unemployed (Source: AICTE) . 6-7% of MBA graduates from Indian B-schools get campus placements. 66% of  IITians graduating in 2017 got campus placements according to data made available by IITs to the human resource development (HRD) ministry. Out of 9,104 students in 17 IITs who applied this year, only 6,013 got jobs through campus placement.

No Placement from IITs (2017, %) 34%
Unemployed after BE/BTech  (2017, %) 60%
Unemployed after MBA (overall, 2017 in %) 93%


Industry sectors across the board are facing acute manpower shortage and this includes IT, BFSI, pharma, healthcare, infrastructure, retail, auto and consumer durables, amongst others. Why are these places not filled especially in the knowledge economy?

The problem with the education system is that 90% of jobs across sectors are skill-based but only 4% of the population in India is currently skilled (in the 15-25 age group, 2018 data). Compare this with 60-80% worldwide and this skill rate (technical, quantitative, qualitative) is 47% in China, 74% in Germany, 80% in Japan and 96% in South Korea.

Where does this skill gap come from?

  • Analytical Reasoning as a skill gap is 31% of all college grads in India.
  • Quantitative Ability as a skill gap is 52% across all college grads in India.
  • Technical or direct employment skills including coding, one of the most highly sought after and well-compensated skills, has a 96% skill gap! It is no surprise then, that this gap in domain/coding skills makes graduates unemployable for core engineering jobs.
