The most sought after skilled worker in Chennai?


Call centre exec?




Throw in your answer and the reason why you think so. I believe we’ll have some very interesting facts to this case.

I have an answer too.

I think it’s the driver. The pix below illustrate why.

    call center execs – chennai seems to have (relatively) less call centers, and the number is growing swiftly

    Plumber or electrician! Both are hard to come by for love or money.

    Not only for skilled mazdurs but even for helpers there is always much demand. Small Scale and Tiney Industries are being killed due to want of workers. Due to competition such workers migrating for a small increments offerred by competitors or contemplators. Now it is not industries’s say but to workers market and they are deciding their wages and perquisites. But small and Tiny industries are now not in a place to even decide the price of their own products and being killed daily. But it is sure that this is not healthy for economics on a long run.

    My first thought was that it would be something to do with the building industry, and I’d guess that it would be one of the crafts that require at least a little knowledge, such as plumbing, electrical, carpentry.

    A few years ago I heard that some people in London take up plumbing because they know they’ll never be out of a job!

    journalist is not a contender. anyone saying otherwise invites my wrath.

    in fact, you dont need any special skills to be a journalist, if u ask me.

    only when u do things that normal people dont understand like the IT guys do, can u actually say u are skilled at something.

    nothing interesting or creative in the writings, the photos illustrate nothing.
    dumb, useless, hopless….

    The bus drivers don’t use skill to move; they use bloody-minded violence and bully-boy tactics.

    Police at junctions take no notice when buses blast through a red light without even pausing, and nothing short of killing someone has any effect on the driver’s career.

    If professional drivers in Chennai, starting with the buses, were properly trained and regulated, and caused to be subject to law, it would not only make the streets safer for everybody, but it would set a good example to others.

    Maybe an articulate politician with good body language, miming ability, with intense theatrical expressions (arched eyebrows, gesticulations etc)and capable of delivering marathon public speeches, splashed with quotations, to hold the crowds in rapt attention. Speeches and dialogue delivery should be power-packed, not necessarily rich in content. Perhaps such talented people are more sought after.
