IT INDUSTRY IS REBOOTING IN 2017 RE-SKILLING MINIMAL FRESH RECRUITMENT MAY BE THE NEW FOCUS OF IT STAFFING COMPANIES

By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : It is to be noted that any amount of automation of processes cannot totally eliminate Information technology work force and jobs even though few people are predicting the landscape of the $150 billion Indian IT industry is changing, perhaps more quickly than ever, as companies hire fewer fresher's due to automation of entry-level jobs but these fears were expressed since from the day computers were introduced in India but nothing such thing happened .Even though Most large IT services companies have been investing in automation of processes in their traditional businesses like business process outsourcing (BPO) and application and infrastructure management, which means fewer engineers, will be required at the lower end of the pyramid but such predictions are made at regular interventions buy few but they are not to happen . And with US President Donald Trump insisting that IT service providers to hire more US citizens at home, the need to send Indian experts abroad may reduce."There is nothing wrong in the focus the industry had on hiring will shift into re-skilling the existing work force for oher skills .

It is for the industry to identify the opportunities and move ahead," Indian IT companies can hire American and sell American and make killing profits in America as American IT companies hire Indian and sell Indian and make killing profits in India . "Make in India American products” "The Indian industry will continue to do well if they learn that there are no easy pickings any longer." And that's true of all companies, irrespective of their size..The US was teaching all countries Globalization and now suddenly talking localization "Buy American and hire American”. Investors from around the world, including in the City of London, will be listening carefully for how America's Donald Trump is set to sign an executive order to overhaul the H-1B & L-1 visa programmes, which let tens of thousands of Indians work in the US, drove tech stocks down and sparked speculation in the IT sector about an uncertain future. Indian business experts predict that Indian IT companies can outsmart any trade barriers created by Donald Trump as they are listening this since the days of his election campaign.India need to remember late Dewang Mehta, the chief lobbyist for India's fledgling software services industry, carried off both with aplomb, convincing businesses that at the stroke of midnight of the new millennium, their computer systems would crash because old programs measured years in two digits instead of four.

Finding work is perhaps single most the toughest part for a freelancer. He has to knock on many doors and spend time, money and energy trying to get work. You can grab freelancing assignments not only in your city or in India but literally in any corner of the world. According to one report , every third user of Freelancer.com is from India.The US-based website helps freelancers get assignments and takes a cut when the deal is done . It's a trend that is slowly catching on. A growing number of professionals is junking regular employment to try their hands at freelancing. They are driven by the dream to be independent and work on theirown terms without the straitjacket of a 9-to-5 job. To be fair, freelancing does unshackle the individual from the tyranny of corporate hierarchy. The jobs are everywhere. What you need to do is find the niche that matches your expertise. "Don't go by just the current demand, but also assess how it will shape up in the coming years.It pays to keep yourself abreast of the latest developments in your chosen field.

For starters, there is no stability of income as in a regular job. As they say, you have to dig a well every day to drink water. You can never be sure about the next project. For those saddled with financial responsibilities, it can lead to a sticky situation if there is a long dry spell on the work front. The other problem is that when you start out, you cannot quote very high rates.
