The author reflects on the large numbers of engineering graduates from many schools in India. The cream of such engineering graduates go abroad for jobs or are hired for jobs not in the engineering field. He comments that there is a serious loss in talent and a step toward bringing stability in the engineering employment market is for organizations not to entertain applicants who are frequent job hoppers.
