EWS

According to the recent report by job searching portal, it has been observed that the Indian job seekers are exploring Canada twice as much they did two years ago for outstation searches from the US to Canada. There is a rise in searches for Canada from 6 percent to 13 percent. The percentage for Indian job seekers opting for the USA has fallen from 60 percent to 50 percent, between the periods of August 2016 – July 2018.

The Indian opting for jobs in Canada as the post of business analyst, mechanical engineer, and software developer is rising, however, the UK has remained constant as with its position of tech magnet. Most Indians are looking to go to the UK to join the country as research fellowship followed by SAP consultants.

There has been observed a huge demand in the STEM sector outside India. The number of foreign applications for Canada has been massive not just due to the immigration policy, but also the growth potential offered by the technology industry.

The immigration policies in Canada and recent development in the UK, lead to Indian job seekers to be more inclined towards moving out.

In fact, the open immigration policy at Canada has become the alternative for Indians, as well as job seekers from other Latin countries too.

The expansions of such policies helps Indian seekers to see a good future in abroad by looking at opportunities offered in other countries.

On the other hand, UK kept its image consistent with proving itself as the tech magnet and banking magnet. Since 2015, job seekers based in other countries have typically accounted for between 8 percent and 10 percent of the overall job applications for tech jobs in the UK.

It was recorded that the maximum number of people looking for jobs in the UK were from India, the US, and France, followed by Poland and Ireland
