    As a part of our regular endeavor, we share our placement reports in an open manner like we have been doing in the past. This news post will share the insights about 2022 placements.

    Emerging Post Pandemic

    The pandemic has changed our lives drastically for the past 2+ years. As the world emerges out of pandemic, there are a lot more career opportunities now than there were before the pandemic. This is mainly due to flexible work arrangements and some related factors. According to us in team Emertxe, we see there are 4 main causes for a spike in job opportunities in the core Electronics and IoT segment after the pandemic:

    1. MNC's are Hiring Beyond IIT's/NIT's :

    MNCs especially from the core Electronics / Embedded segment, used to recruit from prestigious Tier-1 Engineering colleges like the IITs and NITs. For these Tier-1 Engineering College Students, working with startups or becoming entrepreneurs has become very attractive due to the startup boom witnessed in India.


    Added to that Tier-2 and Tier-3 Engineering graduates are more suitable for generic IT skill based jobs due to the skill-gap. Because of this MNCs are unable to hire them. Hence they are exploring channels beyond typical campus hiring to fulfill their manpower needs.


    This is exactly the gap we at Emertxe is able to plug by primarily skilling Tier-2 and Tier-3 Engineering students and making them job ready in the fields of Embedded Systems and IoT. Because of the quality manpower offering, Emertxe has emerged as the MNCs’ top choice for employment channels.

    2. Remote Working Has Been Normalized :

    Remote working emerged as a driving force when the company lacked office space and wanted to attract more staff. Additionally, there was an increase in the number of working women since they valued remote work more than the office did. As it shed light on a healthy work-life balance and helped individuals become less stressed and more productive.


    Companies also became more comfortable in getting more work done remotely. As a combination of all these aspects more work started moving to India based Core Embedded and IoT companies.

    3. New Age Domains :

    More and more career prospects in the core have emerged as the New Age sectors are increasingly driven towards the core fields, such as Electric Vehicles, Industry 4.0 and Robotics. This is mainly due to the fact that these new age devices became a primary source to generate the data. As we all know data is the new oil, hence gaining prominence.

    4. India Becoming The Electronics Hardware Hub :

    The pandemic has also led to shortage in Electronic parts, thereby creating the Semiconductor Crisis. Added to that, many geo-political factors have turned out advantageous for India by making it an Electronics Hardware Hub. The government is trying to capitalize this by investing 76,000 crores on semiconductors which is expected to create 85,000 new job opportunities each year.


    However, the supply side of Engineers is unchanged. While the quantity of engineers tends to increase year on year, their quality in terms of skills still remains a big challenge. Majority of the students have learnt engineering in a theoretical fashion, lacking the expectations from the industry.


    Due to this gap, the larger chunk of engineering graduates remain unemployed. On one side students do not achieve their career goals and objectives by getting into a job, on the other side companies struggle with a lack of productive employees. As more opportunities emerge post pandemic, team Emertxe is committed to make a difference with our continued focus on providing hands-on skill building programs in Embedded Systems and IoT.

    2022 : An Amazing Year of Placements at Emertxe

    The year 2022 has been incredible for Emertxe Placements. As mentioned above, the post pandemic world has opened up so many job possibilities.

    Career Transition and Career Break Success Stories

    Apart from adding significant value for the entry level engineers / freshers, the year 2022 also saw significant success stories coming from the Upskilling segment. At a high level this segment is divided into two categories.

    1. Working Professionals looking for Career Transition :

    These are the folks who after their graduation, would have been forced to join any job that comes their way. They come from a wide spectrum of profiles which include IT / Application Engineers, Marketing / Sales Professionals, Engineering College Faculties who want to transition into corporate careers etc.


    For these professions we provide  online classes in the evening slot, making it convenient for them to attend the classes. By building on their skills they are able to give a facelift to their profiles and achieve career break. Here is the set of working professional success stories in the recent months of 2022.

    2. Resuming Career After a Break :

    These are the people who have been out of the workforce for a very long time. Taking a significant career break, perhaps as a result of the woman relocating to a different place post marriage, looking forward to resume their career after maternity break.


    And another set of people are those preparing for competitive exams but haven’t been successful. After several failed attempts to appear for exams like UPSC and IAS the moment of realization hit them in a way that they too want to join core companies and get settled in their life.


    Here is the set of success stories coming from the career break categories. Low self-esteem, lower confidence, self doubt, and acceptance at the workplace are common issues in both categories as they are aspiring for something bigger and better for themselves. We resolve these challenges by focusing on skill development and giving facelift to their profile.

    Why is Online Learning Here to Stay?

    One of the shining positive results during the pandemic came in the form of online learning. It has become an accepted phenomenon among all. Universities and colleges are making preparations for the future as well as the present.


    As a result, more and more higher education programs are adding online courses to their list of available classes. Every adult, at whatever stage of their lives, can benefit from online learning. For those with a lifelong goal of continuing to learn, online education is also a choice for those wishing to develop knowledge and experience at a particular skill set.


    Here at Emertxe, we are observing success stories from both online and offline courses. We all know that  an online classroom cannot completely replace a physical one. However, at Emertxe, we have built a digital environment supported by a strong model of structured intervention.


    This guarantees that the entire learning process—which includes conceptual understanding, practical application, assignments, regular examinations, and interview preparation sessions—takes place without any compromise on the overall effectiveness of delivery.  Here, students can ask mentors questions during live sessions. To enhance the involvement and engagement from our students,  mentors also continue to hold Q&A sessions, quizzes, and online competitions, among other activities.


    In addition to the regular classes, there will be additional interview preparation and resume preparation sessions as well. As a result of this approach, we are seeing students from online courses are getting immensely benefited as a whole. Another benefit of taking an online course is that it is cost effective and  that you may attend sessions in the comfort of your own home, saving money on travel expenses, stay etc.


    In summary we see online learning is here to stay and we at Emertxe are looking forward to create maximum impact by leveraging our digital infrastructure.
