Non-tech graduates replace engineers in ITeS, finance, infra sectors

With the global economy still sluggish and the IT recovery still uncertain, companies are trying to contain costs, and non-engineering graduates are seen as a viable option to keep costs under control and also get certain kinds of work done that was previously done by engineers. Non-tech grads are seen to fit well in areas like testing, infrastructure, ITeS and finance & accounting. BAs are hired for data entry, voice-related work and administration. Many BSc grads are seen to be capable of handling certain R&D jobs. Blogging, content management and digital marketing are other non-tech job options in tech firms. Besides their aptitude and learning, fresh non-tech grads are available for an annual salary of Rs 2 lakh; about half of what fresh tech grads are typically paid.
