By 1990 Gujarat had achieved economic leadership in textile, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, cement, and many other industries. After India’s economic liberalization in 1990, Gujarat’s economy has grown by more than 12% every year. The welcoming attitude of the current government towards businesses has led to growing investment and economic development in the state.
Ahmedabad is the economic capital of Gujarat. The megacity has changed beyond recognition in the last decade. The infrastructure has developed; malls, numerous new buildings, flyovers, broader roads, BRTS, better water management system, and many other improvements have changed the face of the city. These advancements have led to the creation of a number of new jobs in Ahmedabad.
There is also a discernable shift in the work-culture of the city. Before a few years, students in school or college did not usually take up a job. But with increasing career consciousness and enterprising spirit, many young people still studying in college, or even in school, are getting a taste of work. For some, the reason is to augment their salary, while for others the desire for work stems from a deep need to be considered grown up and mature. Working also helps them understand the ways of the world, reveals to them their capability and interest, and teaches them how to achieve success in their professional life.
Many high school children use their summer vacations to make some money. Even kids from rich families work in restaurants as waiters for a particular number of hours and earn money. They also use their education to their advantage by giving tuitions to younger kids and charging good fees for it. Some of the brightest students also go and teach in tuition institutes and get paid per lecture. High availability of data-entry and computer-related jobs in Ahmedabad also provide work opportunity to students.
College students often take part time jobs and some even bunk their colleges and work fulltime. Enterprising college students also participate in different fairs and events and set up innovative food stalls and make money while getting a hands-on experience of business. Many college students with good communication skills work in call centers. The BPO sector has a strong presence in Ahmedabad and college students form a major chunk of its workforce.
The emergence of countless malls has also provided a splendid chance to college students seeking a job. Admittedly, the pay for such jobs is not high, but the experience counts in the long-term. Campus recruitments also play a major role in bringing the jobs in Ahmedabad to the attention of the students. Students also work freelance in writing, designing, modeling, animation, anchoring, acting and other creative fields. Some argue that working while studying has an adverse effect on the students’ careers, but the students enjoy the feeling of independence. The fact of students working while studying is becoming accepted in Ahmedabad and while there is a glut of jobs in the market, it is working well for everyone.
