There was a drop in the entry level
SCIKEY co-founder Karunjit Kumar Dhir said that there has been a 4 per cent drop in hiring for entry-level and freshers during the lockdown period. It has been a tough patch for most sectors since the lockdown. However, tech companies have gained a good momentum on hiring. Due to the shift to remote working and increased demand for some online services, technology has been immune to the lockdown.
Hiring increase is a good sign
The rise in tech hiring shows that such roles remain in demand due to increased competition and the demand for new digital technology-led projects during the pandemic. This is a positive indicator that businesses are looking to execute their growth plans. We are moving towards, not just survival or business continuity strategy. He added, “As the economy continues to grow slowly with unlock measures and increased mobility, we expect an increase in hiring activity in the rest of the sectors as well. There will be further improvement.
