Hi Mayank,
Hope you are doing great.
I am Jitendranath, 45 years, from Hyderabad. I am writing this after
reading your article on Rediff.
Basically I am a mechanical engineer having 20+ years of experience in the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) and manufacturing industry in the procurement/SCM function.
I worked with companies like Fenner and Kirby in Hyderabad before moving to Thermax, Pune, where I worked for 6+ years. I then returned to Hyderabad with the intention of starting a small business.
But, even after four years, I couldn't succeed in establishing my business and lost all the capital. So I started searching for suitable positions.
I have had no success since the past two years as the EPC and manufacturing industry is itself struggling for several years (since 2012) from scams like coalgate, policy paralysis, demonetisation, GST and now COVID-19.
Even though there are a few jobs in the market, I may not be meeting their requirements.
Could you please help me?
How I should change and develop my skills to meet current and future demand so that I get a suitable job? I am the single source of income for my family of six.
Thanks and regards,
Jitendranath V


Hi Jitendranath.

I believe you have the right foundation to restart your corporate career.

You can plan that with these specific points:

1. With your background in EPC, and with the economy looking up, you can focus on infrastructure and the real estate industry.

2. You can also explore opportunities in international markets like the Middle East and Canada.

3. With 20 years of experience, you must continue to focus on managerial and leadership competencies.

All the best.
