As in many other knowledge intensive industries, India is demonstrating significant growth and leadership in the semiconductor industry, through the execution of the most complex and latest technology designs. The Indian semiconductor industry ecosystem comprises VLSI design, hardware/board design and embedded software offering services and solutions across the whole design lifecycle from chip architecture, design, development, verification and validation all the way to tape out. Several companies have also announced big ticket investments in fabs and manufacturing facilities in India marking a new beginning in this industry spanning the complete semiconductor industry lifecycle.

The industry currently employs engineering professionals spread across Analog, Digital, EDA, Hardware/ Board, DSP, Multimedia and the Embedded Software design domains; Eighty percent of the total workforce employed by the Indian semiconductor industry, works in the embedded software space.

CareerNet has developed core expertise in recruiting semiconductor professionals over several years since the firm's establishment in 1999. CareerNet estimates that around 200 semiconductor companies including the global top 10 fabless companies, IDM's and EDA firms currently operate facilities in India; 120 of those are chip design operations, while the other 80 do software development. CareerNet has been able to successfully cater to the talent acquisition needs of over 70 such companies which form our valuable clientele. CareerNet, with its team of human resource consultants, has been able to identify the depth of talent and expertise that our clients demand and address the very high end requirements of talent acquisition.

The massive growth in this industry globally, and locally in India, over the past few years, has led to a severe scarcity of talent. CareerNet's focused approach has enabled our clients in recruiting over 400 professionals in the past one year across various positions both in MNCs as well as startup companies. The semiconductor industry in India has spread well beyond Bangalore creating "hotspots" in the National Capital Region (Delhi), Hyderabad, Pune and Chennai; CareerNet's deep and wide network, including access to qualified expatriate Indians has resulted in our unparalleled leadership in this space.
