As per the findings based on analysis of data compiled from more than 50,000 job seekers and 3,000 employers across the country – conducted by Youth4work.com, job aspirants in the engineering arena seem to be facing tougher competition compared to their peers from the business administration stream. According to the study, there are 17 aspirants for every one engineering job available. There are more number of students passing out from high-quality engineering colleges, which in turn results in higher number of job aspirants than available opportunities. In comparison, students pursuing business administration have it easier with six job seekers per vacancy. There are opportunities for engineering graduates in the IT sector but same is not the case in many other industries, including automobile segment, which is seeing relatively slow growth.
