As the job market shifts to a more tech-based form, there’s going to be a lot of new ways companies hire, but one entrepreneur believes there should also be a shift in the way graduate students approach the market.
That entrepreneur is Vijay Eswaran, the Executive Chair of QI Group Ltd. Eswaran told the Malaysian Star these graduate students should change their way of entering the job market from simply occupying a position, to taking the initiative to create jobs.
\While Eswaran also said he didn’t put a startup environment over an already established company environment, he did talk about the need in either case for beginners to be less risk averse in trying to get their own company going. He pointed to certain countries that were seeing good economic growth from more people becoming their own bosses.

Vijay Eswaran started QI Group after several years of doing different jobs across Europe and the US. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the London School of Economics and an MBA from Southern Illinois. He had returned to Asia in 1998 because he became interested in a multilevel marketing company that was being started.
Not long after helping start it, Eswaran and his friend Joseph Bismarck began leading it and named it QI Group. From this parent company, they founded QNet, QI Asset Management, QI University, QStride and Quex Courier.
Vijay Eswaran also founded the RYTHM Foundation and the Vijayratnam Foundation, the latter of which was named for his father under QI Group’s auspices. Eswaran has always believed philanthropy and business mix, but even more so he’s a strong advocate of spiritualism having a role at QI Group.
Not only has Eswaran given lectures about his leadership through spiritual concepts, he’s also wrote books on the topic including the bestseller “In The Sphere Of Silence.”
Eswaran has also been featured many times in Forbes Asia, and he was also the recipient of the 2012 New Global Indian award.
