Electrical Jobs in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata etc
Alternative Jobs for Electrical/ Electronics Engineering (other than R&D/ Maintenance/
QA/ Projects etc).
While good percentage of Electrical/ Electronics Engineers take up jobs in Factories/
Plants or at Sites in roles like Maintenance, Production, Quality, Design
& Development, Projects etc., there are few alternatives given below for people
who do not want to work in these roles
IT Software's/ Systems/ Embedded Design: Lot of engineers get into software development
or system admin or Embedded Design field as normally, growth and salaries in these
fields are quite good especially if, at one stage a person gets into a good company.
Some people get into IT after having joined roles of production or quality etc by
doing a training in SAP (though we not recommend it as a person may never find his
first job in SAP easily).
Telecom: Telecom is a very large sector with some very large companies who are almost
always hiring. Growth and salaries are again quite good in this sector and this
also offers some very interesting job profiles as well.
Sales & Marketing: If you have good communication skills or good confidence
level you may get into the field of sales or business development. In this field
if you perform well, growth may be much faster than in say production or maintenance
roles. Normally the job profile includes approaching large industries to sell machinery,
capital goods or raw materials etc. Be aware that targets in this field may provide
frustration and stress at times.
Purchase or Vendor Development: Some Electrical/ Electronics Engineers may take
up this field. It involves interaction with people, traveling and negotiations.
