This is in continuation of my article Hire a fresher .
Embedded system product based companies generally prefer min 1-2 yrs experienced candidate. I can think of few well known reasons for that :
- Experienced person can provide output just in few days of joining
- Experienced person can work independently
- Experienced person used to have some understanding of both hardware and software
- Understand the development eco-system
- Properly document the work assigned
- Can reduce Time to market
- Can create reliable product
How Freshers can get job ?
Both start-up and MNC companies hire freshers as well because of following reasons :
- Trained freshers can provide output at lower salary.
- Freshers can be used for multiple tasks including hardware , software, testing and documentation
- Many freshers can be good as compared to 2-3 years experienced folks.
How to find good freshers ?
We provide hiring support services. Here is one such service which includes training as well.
How to retain employees ?
This is another challenging task for employers. Here is one survey from Linkedin
As per above survey, voting is based on different priorities. I am sharing comment of Gaurav Gupta , Ph.D. which correctly put in different phases of life :
- Work Life balance
- Working environment
How can any company meet requirement of all phases together ?
This is challenging for start-up companies. I had discussed this in Career counsellor in India
Companies should come with some innovative ways to fulfil requirement of all categories we mentioned above. For example . Half day leave on Saturday or providing some perks for those who work on saturday.
