Due to Covid-19 Hiring in India Down 7%, Says Report

Watch out for Jobs that are in demand

Amid a nearly seven percent decline in the number of jobs posted in the first quarter of this year compared to a year ago due to the Covid-19 pandemic, demand has gone up significantly for certain roles such as IT designers, sales, and operations and change management, says a new report.

Employers have indicated a 500 percent surge in requirement of communication and presentation skills in Q1 of this year, compared to last year, showed data from SCIKEY Talent Commerce Platform, a talent marketplace.

The major reason for this increase in communication skills is owing to virtual jobs during the coronavirus pandemic in India.

Another skill that has come to the forefront due to Covid-19 is change and implementation.

There has been a significant rise in skills including Javascript, Oracle, HTML and Node.js in Q1 2020.
