According to India-based job portal Naukri.com, hiring activity increased by 15 per cent this past month with emphasis on the IT sector.
Suresh, Chief Sales Officer, Naukri.com, said while YOY growth is only at 1%, February’s results should be considered a big win.
“The good news is the month-on-month growth of over 15% in February compared with January. We can expect the job market to be volatile for the next few months before it tends to move north again,” he said in an interview with Business Standard.
“Key industries like IT-Software and BPO/ITES saw an eight per cent and 21% growth respectively in February compared with January,” he added.
