Jump-starting my career to giving it wings - The growth industry

Some plan their professional journey meticulously. From school itself, they are sure of what they want
to become. Few succeed in following their passion, unfortunately few don’t.

For most, having a career in BPM sector does not feature in “what will I become when I grow up plan”.
And honestly, it wasn’t the case for me either. With the organic path my career took, and now having
spent over 20 years in the industry, I wonder at times why that was? Hold on. Hear me out and I’ll prove
my point.

The BPM industry has been on a growth path for the last 15 years. In the last few years, this growth has
been fueled with tech infusion on digital services, AI & big data analytics, DevOps, RPA, blockchain,
AR/VR and much more.

customers around the world.

And India is at the center of it all.

approximately 8x larger than the size of its fresh talent pool. By 2024, this demand is expected to
become 20x the available fresh talent pool.

At Concentrix, for example, there are some amazing learning, development & re-skilling opportunities
that are provided for staff so that they can migrate from being a generalist & become a specialist in key
growth & demand domains.
