- More jobs: with the progress in various industries, more jobs have come up, creating more demand. In the last decade, a lot of industries have grown rapidly. Consider, for instance, the Software industry - the stock price of TCS has grown from Rs. 127 per share in 2009 to Rs. 1,900 per share today. This shows how rapidly the industry has grown. Undoubtedly this has created a lot of jobs for all kinds of college students.
- Improvement in students’ skills: the number of good students has increased. Today, students are aware that Competitive Programming, Machine Learning, Backend Development, etc. are some skills which could be picked up in a matter of 3 - 6 months and would help them nail a job at a top tech company. There are innumerable success stories of students from Tier 2/3 colleges who have successfully cracked top companies.
- Decreased bias: companies are now focusing on skills rather than brand/tags (IIT/IIM/NIT/BITS). Companies like Microsoft, Amazon, etc. are well-known international brands who are known to hire from Tier 2 and 3 colleges. Of course, they have a hiring bar and they hire only the best students. However, times have changed now and these companies no more are restricted to Tier 1 colleges.
