Job Postings Increase In All Sectors; Engineering, Healthcare Job Fare The Best, Says Latest Data

KOLKATA: The number of job postings in India has increased in all industries, while engineering and healthcare have shown the best recovery so far, shows data from job site Indeed.

The trend in job postings in India — a real-time measure of labor market activity in July — is 42% lower than in 2019. Compared to 50% slower than in 2019 in June 2020, continuing their gradual, but incomplete rebound.

Indeed’s latest data shows a sign of progress in all sectors. Civil Engineering job postings were 26% lower than in June 2019 whereas in July they are lower by 10%. Other streams in engineering also show significant improvement.

Job opportunities have improved in nearly all sectors. Some sectors where hiring appetite looks relatively strong, at least compared to the overall average, are those that didn’t experience sharp declines in March and April.
