Below are my few observations about India as a SaaS market. I hope this will helpful for other SaaS B2B startups that are focusing on India as a market.

Search for ‘Soft Skills’ on Google, you will find 2, 58, 00,000 results. Huge database… Isn’t it? What was recapitulated in these searches was “what do recruiters expect from candidates while hiring?” The recruiter is the facilitator between the candidate and his next career move. Although recruiters play their cards close to the chest, definitely there are ways top talent can stand out and be discovered. Now to stand out among all other, a candidate needs to get in front of the recruiter and show him or her why he is the right one for the job. Apart from degree, credentials and technical knowledge, what will make a candidate stand out is his Soft Skills. Soft skills portray how one acts in his life and work. Studies reveal that 75 percent of success depends on people skills (soft skills) and 25 percent on technical knowledge. That does not mean technical knowledge is not important but soft skills defines who you are and how you act. Ironically, soft skills are the hardest skills to develop.

This is not just a story but an occurrence that can happen anywhere! Once upon a time but not very long ago, in the far away land or very nearby destination known for global IT outsourcing, lived a young Software Engineer, Rahul. He was ambitious, talented and highly motivated and a true symbol of the entire younger generation. He was a trained Software Engineer working in the same field with a highly reputed Software Company. Being in this field for quite some time, Rahul was well-versed with his job and with time his assignments became a monotonous routine. It was obvious that he was bored with his current job; hence started looking around for new challenging software development assignments.
