Factors that Enhance Job Opportunities for LIS Aspirants in India


All my dear and near LIS friends !!!

As we aware that how important is a job in our life. Being an LIS professional, for all of us, it is essential to know, what are the key factors that enhance the job opportunity for LIS Students. All we have struggled hard from our BLIS to Research degree and even after that to get a job. So, I would request you to share your valuable experience and input to determine these factors for getting a job in LIS.

Theefore, you are requested to kindly spare few minutes in your precious time to complete a survey, which is otherwise not possible to complete my study. It is assured that the information provided by you will be used for the academic purpose only and it will be kept confidential.

Please go through The Questionnaire

I would like to also urge you all to kindly share the link among other LIS Professionals and encourage to fill out the questionnaire, please.

Dear Sri O.P. Saini,

Thanks for your post.

I attended your questionnaire.

However, practically speaking, to enhance job opportunities, the very first issue is to restrict the number of Universities to conduct teaching of LIS!!

I fully understand it will taste to be extremely bitter for many of our LIS professionals but deep in their hearts, they will feel that my statement is true in every practical sense.

I really feel perturbed when I see ads for contractual posts under various lucrative terminologies of designations like ExecutivesTrainees, Associates, Interns where the bright young professionals elapse their best years of productive professional lives without any hope for a permanent job. It is really painful!! But at the same time, if supply is abundant, the market falls!! and employers adopts "hire & fire" principles!

It is so nice of you sir, 

First of all please accept my sincere thanks for filling up your input.

It the quality of teaching , not the numbers of university that harm the LIS professionals a lot. If the education opportunity are at large scale, no problem. The problem is that what we are delivering to students, how much extent of practicals or hands on training, the students have in the class.

If we are not offering latest syllabus then how a student get a job.

Yes ! mushrooming of educational institutions in LIS in India is a big problem. Because the govt. does not have any control on them.

Other hand , I know several students also Who want shortcut for getting a job.

It true sir, that the truth always bitter in taste. But it is up to us, to make our students aware with the truth.

The study has taken into account to keep in mind the same objective.. to let students know how they are capable to get a job in LIS ? 

I will surely share the major findings on this platform.

Besides, I have designed another study specifically for teachers by which I intended to know their perception on working librarians. What they think of us..... And so on....

Your insight are solicited on the topic, please.



Respected All the Respondent,
I feel immense pleasure to express my sincere thank and acknowledge to you for spending your valuable time to respond my online questionnaires i.e. "The factor that enhances the job opportunities for LIS professionals in India''.
This is a small scale study that aims to get the experience of LIS professionals and their struggle for getting a job of their choice.
I think the study could not be completed without your cooperation. I would like to thank all LIS members who have given their input for the study through this wonderful platform. However, the study is still on, those who have not given their responses, they can also welcome to give their response up to July 30, 2018.
A special thank to Dr. Badan Berman, for the opportunity to collect data through this platform.
I solicited your help.
Thank you so much, all.
Regards !!
O. P. Saini
