Demand for freshers, which was the hardest hit following the lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, has seen an uptick since June and this trend is likely to continue till the end of this financial year, say experts.
The sectors that are witnessing significant uptrend include EdTech and e-Learning followed by healthcare, HR tech and FinTech.
“Freshers hiring had dropped down to mere 1.5 lakh during March 25-April 30, from the average 5 lakhs per month. However, the scenario is improving and currently there are around 3.5 lacs fresher job openings listed on the portal,” Teamlease.com and Freshersworld.com VP and Business Head Kaushik Banerjee told PTI.
Hiring began to look up for freshers in late June and is likely to pick up more strength during September-November period, he noted.
