Land Of Opportunities- Not USA But India

Land Of Opportunities- Not USA But India

We know many students who land in USA for studies hardly find an opportunity to work after their education, and hence flying back to homeland these days. 

Though USA is called 'land of opportunities', now it appears India should be called so but not USA. 

Last month, sectors such as hospitality, oil and gas, and Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) saw a rise in hiring in India, as per a report released on Tuesday. 

The hospitality and travel sector particularly saw a 16% increase and boosted by the growing travel and tourism activities, according to the 'Naukri JobSpeak Index'.

Roles like front office managers, housekeeping supervisors and F and B service professionals were highly sought after in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. 

Pawan Goyal, Chief Business Officer of Naukri.com, noted that although the overall hiring index remained steady, there was significant growth in hospitality, oil, gas and FMCG sectors.

In April, the oil and gas industry saw a 15% increase in new job creation, with roles like petroleum engineers and drilling engineers in demand, especially in cities like Ahmedabad, Vadodara, and Jaipur.

FMCG sector hiring grew by 11% compared to the previous year, driven by rising demand in rural areas.

Non-metro cities continued to perform well, surpassing metros, while senior professionals remained in high demand.

The IT sector saw a modest 2% growth in April, with roles in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) showing a 19% increase in hiring compared to the previous year.
