Last weekend over 8,000 people were waiting in line on Sunday morning for a job interview for a position in Bangalore, reports Metro.

It concerned a trainee position as an engineer in the IT company HCL Technologies - not really a particularly special position in itself.

However, the number of applicants says fairly much about what is happening in the labor market in India these days, where there are far more educated and qualified applicants than there are jobs.

The interviews were scheduled to start at 10 o'clock on Sunday morning, but the company was forced to start the written tests an hour earlier because so many people had gathered outside already at 7 o'clock.

People traveled from around the country to attend the interview.

Finally so many applicants had turned up that everyone was sent home after two hours.

- This is not the way to conduct an interview with thousands of unemployed youths who stood there for hours and thought that their turn would come, says Sajid B, to Bangalore Mirror.

Bangalore is regarded as India's answer to Silicon Valley, and is one of the most popular places to work for IT specialists.

A spokesperson for HCL Technologies says to Bangalore Mirror that they were surprised how many people showed up.

- We did not expect that so many people would come today. We had to stop the interview process and ask job applicants to leave their CV with us.
