Employment Report: Freelance Jobs In India Grew 22 Percent In January 2021

Postings for freelance jobs spiked between May and June 2020, a nearly two-fold increase from the same period in 2019

With the pandemic disrupting the job market, hiring for freelance jobs in India grew 22 percent in January 2021 compared to a year ago, said a report from job site Indeed on Friday. The data also showed that postings for freelance jobs spiked between May and June 2020, a nearly two-fold increase from the same period in 2019.

With the implementation of work-from-home structures, job search activity post-March 2020 was consistently higher than pre-pandemic levels, peaking in April 2020. However, data showed that at any point in time, freelance job postings have outstripped freelance job searches. The growth was driven by creative, tech, sales, and recruitment fields as these sectors contributed to 55 percent of the freelance jobs posted on Indeed.
