Hiring Activity is double then Before-after COVID19

Who would have thought that a pandemic that took away millions of jobs across the world, would double up the opportunities once its impact slows down? Yes, you heard that right after the pandemic has begun to loosen its impact (which is great news), many companies and startups are looking out for potential candidates to be part of the company.

The best part about job vacancies coming back on track is that every sector can be seen hiring employees. Where earlier, the pharma/ medical, BPOs, and IT sectors used to hire the most employees, the unlock has seen significant hiring in telecom, real estate, and the retail sectors as well. And all this is because everyone today has become more practical than just living a life for a better future. It is being assumed that the hiring rate will soon increase to another level as many more new companies and ventures are working on expanding their businesses.

And for everyone who is seeking their first job, a job change, or a new opportunity because of any XYZ reason, we have shared a few hiring trends that you can keep in mind. These trends will help you understand the working and shaping of the current job market in terms of functional areas, cities, and experience levels.
