The Indian IT men are not only hot in Job Market, but they are hottest in Marriage market as well. Nowadays, every mother wants her daughter to be married to a software professional.
Indian IT guys are in huge demand…and why should they not be?
A young Indian IT professional in India is earning more than double the average salary than any other profession. They are also likely to see their salaries jump more than any other professional in the country right now – with salaries rising about 20% a year on average. In last few years, people have left their jobs in other engineering streams and joined the Software bandwagon. Even then, India faces a huge scarcity of software guys as per the recent Nasscom Survey. Infact, by 2010, the demand and supply gap is going to be as wide as half a million jobs.
Not very long ago, an ideal candidate for marriage was a person having decent government job. That was looked upon as a security for life. Every parent wanted their daughter married to a settled government employee. Not any more !
The statistics from sites like Jeevan Sathi and Bharat Matrimony show that nearly 80% of people are looking for a software professional match. Even better, if the guy is settled abroad or has chances of moving abroad. I guess the attraction for west has not diminished a bit.
In early days, a software person was known to be a geek, a nerd and not exactly a marriage material, but with technology coming in vogue, they are now the most sought after professionals. It is also because the priorities for match making have not changed.
The biggest thing to look for in a potential candidate is MONEY (very relative term), and IT men seem to have that in abundant now-a-days.The young IT generation in India is really a fortunate lot.
Make hay while the sun shines !
