Job opportunities in the telecom sector likely to take a boost: Study

Job opportunities in the telecom sector are likely to increase by 30 lakh by 2018, a study has said.

This phenomenon is most likely to happen because of the roll-out of 4G technology with an increase in data, entry of new players in the market, introduction of digital wallets and the popularity of smartphones leading to consistent increase in demand for technology.

Emerging technologies such as 5G, M2M and the evolution of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) are expected to create employment avenues for almost 8,70,000 individuals by 2021, revealed a joint study by Assocham-KPMG.

It said the existing manpower in the sector may not be adequate both in number as well as in skill to cater to the upcoming demand.
