U.S based Indian Professionals Fleeing Back Home, Looking for Jobs in India

February 3, 20178:27 am413 views

Businesses and tech companies in U.S seem to not be quite happy with the Trump immigration ban and U.S President’s inauguration Pledge ‘Buy American-hire American’. This has once again stoked interest among Indian professionals working overseas to come back home and seek for jobs in India.

They are increasingly reaching out to manpower consultants in the country to explore equivalent options. Recruitment firms such as BTI Consultants, RGF Executive Search, Transearch, The Head Hunters, and Antal International have reported doubling up enquiries from Indian professionals in the last couple of months, after the Republican winner declares his policy stance during the inauguration.

Nervousness seems to have gripped Indian companies who have significant employee base in the U.S. Most of the queries generated are for positions such as project managers and above who have completed more than three years in the U.S, after which one gets a H1B visa extension or about the six-year period. These professionals are unsure today, if they do get an extension of their visa or even qualify for a green card.

While other leading firms leading search firms such as Korn/Ferry and Heidrick & Struggles say search mandates are in a wait and-watch mode, Economic Times reported. Recruitment experts predict that the exodus of talent migration to U.S will definitely come to stop for at least a year, post this ban.

In these times of uncertainty with most of the companies being reliant on U.S, it is a worrisome period for players in Banking, Pharma, IT and finance sectors.

A wait and watch period for companies to see if this ban would help boost the Indian economy in a positive light and impact on sectors in the U.S with many best talent from India contributing to the U.S economy for long.
