The beautiful state of Himachal is famous for its scenery, mountains, and hospitality. It also has good connectivity between different north Indian states and cities. With all this, the tourism rate is high in Himachal. Now, not only just tourism but Himachal is soon going to be an IT hub of the country.
The availability of several educational institutions and upcoming web-based startups is the main cause for Himachal to transform into an IT hub.
The situation is very different 10 years ago. The private sector IT jobs were very rare in the region at that time. With no availability of good institutions, the youth of the region had to migrate to various other cities of the country. This led to the development of the respective cities. Even for higher education, the students had to move out of Himachal to attain quality education. They moved to cities like Delhi, Chandigarh, and Bangalore.
Many cities in the state have good IT startups and educational institutions. Some of them are Mandi, Shimla, Dharmashala, Solan
The current situation around Himachal is that the nearby cities like Punjab, Haryana, and Uttarakhand have attained new IT companies. This led to an increase in IT in Himachal as well. There are several jobs available in the region as full-time, part-time, or freelancing. This changed the situation of the graduates from the region to go to the other states for employment.
Many well-recognized universities have been started in the region, which is another reason for the increase in job opportunities. Some of the cities in the Himachal state like Mandi, Shimla, Solan, Dharmashala are being recognized as educational hubs of the state.
Coming to the jobs, Shimla became very famous for its web design startups like Netgen IT solutions. These startups are also looking for candidates to fill several vacant positions. It has been 5 years since Netgen started in the Himachal. Along with job opportunities, Netgen also offers training related to IT jobs like graphic designers, content creators, app developers.
