A little more than seven in 10 companies in India are keen on moving to a completely remote setup

India's hiring rate recovered moderately from 10 percent in April to 35 percent in May, but working women and young professionals remain vulnerable to economic turbulence and burnout is a reality, according to LinkedIn, the global professional networking platform. Releasing new data on Tuesday, LinkedIn said working women are four times less confident than their male counterparts about getting a job. And the average time taken for new graduates to find jobs has increased from two to over three months.

As India slowly recovers from the second Covid wave, the workforce is beset with economic uncertainty, coupled with low confidence and optimism levels about their professional future, according to LinkedIn data. Commenting on how 'remote work' (working from home) is here to stay, LinkedIn stated that it offered "a glimmer of hope to new graduates, women professionals, and the future workforce."

A little more than seven in 10 companies in India are keen on moving to a completely remote setup. The proportion of entry-level jobs labeled as 'remote' has increased by nine times between 2020 and 2021. The demand for IT talent continues to surge. Application developers, software engineers, and SAP specialists are the top three most in-demand professionals today. Knowledge of SQL and JavaScript is the most sought-after skillset on LinkedIn.

Even as digital transformation continues to shape the industrial landscape, sectors such as finance, corporate services, and manufacturing have seen a growth in hiring, thanks to the resumption of economic activity, the LinkedIn data showed. More than nine in 10 companies in India, however, are merging roles and looking to fill open roles internally. A worrying aspect of the LinkedIn report is the finding that India's workforce has slowly but surely arrived at the brink of a collective burnout.

This sentiment reflects strongly across the rising demand for flexibility in India as every second job-seeker prioritizes location, hours, and work-life balance when looking for a job today. India's overall workforce confidence has declined after peaking in early March, according to the report. The aftermath of the second Covid-19 wave has left professionals in India -- particularly Gen Z and working women -- increasingly vulnerable to the economic uncertainty in the job market, the LinkedIn study revealed.

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
