Thinking of Moving to Cities in Search of Jobs? Think Twice, Rural Tamilnadu Joins Information Technology Highway
US real estate firms have spawned new job opportunities for TN rural women. Thanks to their outsourced projects on maintenance service billing and invoice processing, Indian KPO (knowledge processing outsourcing) companies have roped in rural women for the job that does not call for niche skill sets. Companies such as Episource, a KPO firm headquartered in the US, has opened new avenues to graduate women in areas such as Jolarpet, Koundapadi and Villivakkam to eke out a living of their own. In association with women self-help groups, the company has helped women in these rural areas to set up small brick-and-mortar centres to do some processing work for the company.
