Indian management students prefer public sector jobs: StudyJuly 16th, 2012 - 10:41 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 16 (IANS) Indian management students prefer to work in public sector firms over private ones due to secure employment environment and high future earnings, followed by MNCs , a study said Monday.
The study — Preferred Employer 2012 — by online job portal FlikJobs.com and MyHiringClub.com reflected how youngsters are looking at job security as one of the most important parameters while choosing their future employers.
It also said that for women job seekers, a bank is an attractive workplace compared to men. Among management and engineering stream employees, Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) is first choice to work and among BCA/MCA stream employees, Google is first choice to join.
“Job security is a big factor driving job seekers to opt for a job in the public and government sector. Working in the PSUs and government organisation is stable and permanent,” said Rajesh Kumar, chief executive officer, FlikJobs.com and MyHiringClub.com
“Once selected in any government position, the person is recruited until the age of retirement. In special cases, like corruption, theft or other job-related dishonesty, the person is suspended and when proved guilty, dismissed. Now in current scenario, salary is also almost at par,” he added.
The study was conducted on 1,86,745 registered job seekers of FlikJobs.com. Among surveyed employees, 21 percent respondents were from PSUs and government departments while 33 percent of them want to work with private sector organisation and 67 percent are happy with their current position.
