This is in continuation of my previous article Embedded Jobs for Freshers
As we all know that there is shortage of good embedded firmware professionals in India. It is getting difficult to hire experienced folks for small/medium size companies. Many start-up companies are ready to provide competitive salary package and good working environment.
We recently advertised for Sr IoT firmware engineers and got only 32 applications. On the other hand the 1-2 yr experience hardware engineer requirement crossed 700 applications.
What is the solution ?
I think companies should start considering working professionals who are interested to enter in the firmware development field. I used to come across multiple such folks on regular basis. This includes contract based embedded professionals in hardware design/testing/Quality/support/IT. Most of these professionals are aware of the product development cycle and can do firmware development if they get proper training.
Companies may also consider diploma, M.Sc, MCA etc candidates for Embedded firmware role.
How to identify good candidates ?
I know that it is difficult to consider options mentioned in the solution but I noticed majority of such applications in all kind of embedded jobs. So we are providing hiring support service for identifying genuine candidates as per company budget.
