In India hiring activity picked up in December showing +7% growth when compared to a year ago, according to the latest Naukri job index. This is despite December being a traditionally slow month for recruitment.
“It is definitely a positive sign that hiring activity perked up in the final month of 2012. Job creation in this quarter will take place in the new emerging growth sectors rather than the traditional ones,” said Hitesh Oberoi, CEO at Info Edge India.
A number of sectors were upbeat with their hiring plans in December, including the telecom, pharma, construction and insurance sectors. Demand for professionals in engineering (+10%), supply chain (+13%) and banking (+18%) all increased.
