Excerpted from the India Career Guide
The increase in Indians’ incomes will drive the expansion of industries such as tourism, education and health care. This trend, accompanied by higher savings, will fuel more growth.
This growth will demand educated workers, and is increasing opportunities for women.
In fact, women are being wooed at major consultancies in India. For example, more than 30 percent of new hires by the Boston Consulting Group are women. In addition, the number of women at the partner and director level is on the rise at firms including Bain & Company, McKinsey and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Lack of skills is a common reason for vacancies in India. In fact, about half of employers in India are having difficulty finding the right talent. Some of the areas with positions that are hardest to fill include:
