Thousands of recent graduates in civil and mechanical engineering are now furiously battling for a shrinking pool of jobs and facing an increasingly uncertain future due to attenuating economy. According to data, one out of every three graduates of civil and mechanical engineering in cities are unemployed. With the economy expanding slowly, about 50,000 graduates in civil, mechanical engineering entering the market every year. Due to the slowing economy and the competition between experienced workers and newcomers with engineering degrees for entry-level positions, MSME and MNC businesses are reluctant to hire. Such positions have vanished from the tech and other sectors, which typically hire new talent.Analysts blame a slowing economy crippled by Covid-19 lockdowns, as well as the large cohort entering the labour force during the graduating season, for the slim prospects facing Engineering youth. Long lines of recent graduates in civil and mechanical engineering are standing in queue for jobs.However, headhunters are claiming that because there were so few open positions, they are selectively choosing Engineers from prestigious universities.
