While the BFSI and Telecom industries recorded the maximum increase in hiring activity, the hiring scenario in the Oil and Gas and real estate industries continues to be dismal.
In continuation with the trend witnessed previous month, consulting and medical/pharma professionals continue to witness a high growth in demand in the July’15 index as well. While the hiring activity in Delhi-NCR continued to be stable, Bangalore, Pune and Hyderabad let the tally registered a Y-o-Y growth between 15% – 20% in hiring activity in July 2015 as reflected by the Naukri Job Speak Index.
V Suresh, Executive Vice President and Chief Sales Officer, Naukri.com said, “Job market continues to sustain the momentum gained in the first quarter with an impressive 11% YOY growth in July. Sectors like IT, Banking and Pharma have been leading this growth for the past few months and we can expect the other sectors to pick up in the next six months or so. In my view the financial year 2015-16 will be a year to cheer for the job-seekers.”
