Once hot topic in the marriage industry, IT engineers now are no longer a topic of discussion, says the traditional matchmakers and matrimonial website trends.
A number of reasons have lions share to this—layoffs and uncertainty in the IT industry; elevated protectionist emotion in the U.S. under the management of Donald Trump; and the risk of mechanization probably impacting more jobs. That indicates Indian firms are employing more individuals in the U.S., in place of sending over engineers from home ground. Software employees have certainly lost much of their status, particularly when it comes to prearranged weddings.
A latest ad posted by the parents in a matrimonial column of a future Tamil bride, for example, finished thus: “(Hunt for) doctor, IAS/IPS, and businessman. Software engineers kindheartedly do not contact.”
Since the start of 2017, the number of ladies looking for IT engineers has declined, claimed CEO of Shaadi.com, Gourav Rakshit. Shaadi.com is one of the biggest matrimonial sites in the country.
“We have also concurrently witnessed that a number of ladies seeking life partners in the U.S. have been lowering swiftly, particularly since November 2016,” Rakshit claimed to the media. “What’s fascinating is that the above 2 may be connected considering political developments in the U.S.
Indian ladies are more prone to move post marriage, which is why potential grooms have been strike harder by the modification in awareness about IT.
At Shaadi.com, almost 7% of ladies are seeking potential husbands in the U.S. The amount has been on a sturdy turn down due to a broader trend, claimed Rakshit. Chances in India have been rising constantly and ladies today are more uncertain to interrupt their lives and careers to settle overseas. “On the other hand, we have witnessed a sharper reduction in February 2017 (15%) and November 2016 (11%),” he claimed to the media.
Senior Vice-President at Jeevansathi.com, Rohan Mathur, claimed that for the U.S.-based forecasts, there is a marginal plunge of almost 2% in interest for marriage established in last few months. “However it is not a prickly drop as one may have anticipated seeing the discussion over IT job layoffs,” he further added.
