India predicts a 34% increase in 5G-related jobs

According to recent research released on Tuesday, job listings for telecoms and 5G have surged by 33.7% over the past year as businesses consider adopting the technology more quickly in light of its rollout in India.

The country’s employment of jobs like telecommunications engineer increased by 16% between August and September 2022.

According to data from the top job site Indeed, the average pay for top positions like technical support, BPO executive, and customer care professional is, respectively, Rs 3,53,298, Rs 3,29,520, and Rs 3,06,680.

In India, the implementation of 5G has been highly anticipated, and companies have already started hiring for the development of 5G-specific technology and services. In the upcoming quarters, we probably will see a rise in recruiting for these positions, according to a career expert.

Demand for cybersecurity is probably going to rise as India deploys 5G.

Between August 2019 and August 2022, there is already a skill gap of 25.5% in security, and the introduction of 5G services will result in a significant increase in the number of security-related employment, according to the analysis.

According to the official, there will be a greater need for qualified personnel who can develop security systems and strengthen network architectures to accommodate the new technologies.

Given that businesses were becoming more distant, there were more devices online, more people were making purchases online, and security concerns were at an all-time high, the pandemic accelerated the need for effective cybersecurity policies.

According to the data, “cybersecurity”-related job posts increased by 81% between August 2019 and August 2022.
