Basically, IT companies are the service providers,therefore recruitment and thus absorbtion of the candidates depends upon the project they get
therefore more project more working force they need ,out of which they absorb the best possible talents and rest of them are laid off.

Yes.When the world and business is reeling under recession, it is bound to affect all I.T.companies too as all I.T.companies are directly related to out sourcing and other related jobs.so the input will be drasticallt reduced and no company will afford to keep the people on job as they are not running the charity institutions!
Ultimatelt the axe will fall on the people working on those companies and none can blame for that.the fittest will survive based on their worth.

Remind it that the IT sector is developed sector there is no chance of cut of service providers throughout hte global outlook not comparable to bpo or call center, IT is a research & development career training programme.

I for one think not an inevitable thing - for there are vast potential in IT sector to absorb ten to hundred times jobs as and when the expansion of economic activities takes place in the far off flung places away from the metros - for example in district level activities - IT sector has a vast & great expansion aspects where scope to provide hundred to thousand times more jobs than the present number - only time will prove the importance IT sector will play in the economic aspects - thankyou
