“It always seems impossible until it’s done,” Anonymous

The year 2019 has been one of, if not the best year in terms of job and career trends in decades. Hiring statistics are on the rise and the number of job openings in most companies, giants and startups seems to be hitting an all-time high. Even though most of these trends are obvious and professionals can find and understand them easily, some stories go unnoticed. So, just like every other fortnight, Edureka Career Watch is back with the most compelling career and job news in the industry.

So, without any more delay, let’s look at what the job market has in store for us this week.

Union Budget 2019: Focus on Technology Skills and Research

The Indian government Union Budget for the year 2019 is out and presents some intriguing facts. With a focus on making India a $5 trillion economy within a few years, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated that it is high time the country focused on training and development of professionals working in technology fields. The new policy hopes to provide skill training to over 10 million people in digital technologies like AI, IoT and big data. The skill shortage in fields like AI, data science and robotic process automation has been prevalent for a while in the subcontinent and this new decision by the central government will help fill the skill gap in these important domains.

India is home to a large population of IT professionals and skilling up is the only way these professionals can secure their jobs.
