Techies look for a career change

Is the information technology sector losing its sheen? Several techies in the city are now looking at alternative career options and are pursuing their interests, hobbies and business ideas to diversify into new fields.Many believe that the effort to remain updated in the IT sector is difficult and by putting the same effort elsewhere, they can make it big.

Thus, several IT professionals are preparing to enter the civil services, while others are focused on floating business ventures like restaurants, customised shops, and even setting up their own rock bands. These alternatives are prompted by the growing economic uncertainties and the slow rate of growth in the information technology industry. “I have been taking coaching classes for the civil services since the past seven months and am now very focused on studies. I’ve been working as a software analyst for the past two years but the job has stagnated.

There are others who, like me, are ready to take the jump and try out other things,” said Vishal Jain, a techie. IAS study circles in the city have a large number of IT professionals with four or five years of experience. “At least 60 per cent of out students are IT professionals. They are showing an interest in permanent jobs and civil services is a preferred option,” said Krishna Reddy, the chairman of the Gandhi IAS Study Circle. A group of like-minded IT professionals from an IT major are about to launch their own icecream parlour. “I had this plan to set up a restaurant even while I was in college and now that I have found a likeminded group, I am going to take the jump,” said N.Akhil
