STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) job roles in India have witnessed an overall increase of 44 per cent between November 2016 and November 2019, reveals a recent report.
According to data from job site Indeed, STEM-related jobs are among the most promising for job seekers, as these job openings have seen consistent growth in the past three years in the country.
In the last year (November 2018 to November 2019), postings for STEM roles grew 5 per cent. While the overall job searches for these roles decreased by 14% in the past three years (November 2016 to November 2019).
"As job postings in STEM have seen consistent growth in India over the past three years, it is promising to see job seekers take an increasing interest in these roles as well. With advancements in several areas of science and technology such as robotics, IoT, and so on, there is likely to be demand for tech talent across sectors. However, as the skills required for these jobs become more advanced with time, it is important for job seekers to continuously upskill themselves to stay relevant in the field, said Venkata Machavarapu, Head of Engineering, India and Site Director at Indeed India.
The data calculated for this report was based on job searches and postings on the Indeed platform from November 2016 to November 2019.
The report further showed that Delhi led the way for STEM jobs with 31 per cent of overall postings among metros, followed by Mumbai (21 per cent), Bengaluru (14 per cent), Pune (12 per cent), Hyderabad (12 per cent) and Chennai (10 per cent).
However, in terms of regions, with 34 per cent postings the West has surpassed the rest of the country to seal the top spot. The North and South are at second number with 31 per cent of postings from each of these regions. The East saw only 4 per cent of all STEM job postings.
The top five job roles in demand are software engineer, php developer, .net developer, android developer and full stack developer.
As per the report, the demand for talent in STEM is in line with the interests of job seekers as the roles of php developer, software engineer, .net developer and android developer are also among the most searched titles for STEM jobs by job seekers in the country.
