Hiring For Indian Employees Improve By 25% In 30 Days! These Jobs In High Demand (LinkedIn Report)
LinkedIn data has found that hiring in India recovered from 10% in April to 35% in May.
But financial uncertainty remains, which has made professionals vulnerable after the second wave of the pandemic receded.
This can be seen in the April 2021 hiring rate which was just 10%, a sharp fall from 50% in March.
The new recovery to 35% can be attributed to easing of lockdown restrictions and resumption of economic activity.
Those at risk for economic turbulence include working women and young professionals.
LinkedIn says that working women are “4x less confident than working men.”
New graduates and young professionals are also undergoing a rough patch as reflected by the time it took for them to find employment- which is 2-3 months on average.
Industries That Hire The Most And Least
The main industries which have been found to actively recruit comprise finance, corporate services, manufacturing, healthcare, and hardware & networking.
On the flip side, industries that have reduced their hiring include consumer goods, media & communications, automotive, marketing & advertising and staffing & recruiting.
Internal hiring to fill open roles has also picked up pace.
The highest internal mobility rate in 2020 was found to involve the functions of product management, consulting, and program & project management.
Specialised engineering, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and data science roles were in top demand in 2020.
IT roles continue to enjoy popularity with application developers, software engineers, and SAP specialists being the top 3 in-demand jobs today.
India’s workforce is experiencing strong collective burnout as the hustle continues for upskilling, tech-proofing, and recruiting continues.
This can be seen in job seekers looking for flexibility with regards to location, hours, and work-life balance.
