The study conducted by NASSCOM and KPMG, shows that there would be dearth of IT talent by the year 2010, in the country.
The estimation comes more than 2.35 lakh jobs in IT and ITES sectors that may go weird for lack properly trained personnel. Human Resources executives and educational institution representatives discussed the issue in detail at the `HR Summit' organised by NASSCOM on `Profile of the emerging IT-ITES workforce: shaping the talent pool' in Chennai recently. The key factor emerged in the summit was not the `number of students', but the `average suitability of students for the market'. As a solution, it was highlighted on the relevance of 'softskills' which is important for the students to know how to behave in a cross-cultural work environment. That is the present and the future of IT sector. On contrary, it was also perceived that, certain jobs would require less of communication skills and 'more of coding'. It is better to work on one's strengths and the upcoming graduates should be groomed to face the situation.
