Bengaluru: India is expected to see a revival of jobs in the second half of this year fuelled by demand from IT services, ecommerce, logistics,” said Suraj Moraje, Group CEO and executive director, Quess Corp NSE -1.20 %.
The staffing major said even though there was a significant drop in demand in Q1 (April-June), it has seen a surge in queries from ecommerce, logistics, IT services and some other sectors. Education sector, however, continues to see a decline in demand.
“I think the worst is behind us,” said Moraje, adding that: “On Monster (job portal) there were 38000 job posting a month in Q1; while in Q2 we had 64000 job posting a month.”
“We are pivoting towards the sectors where we see growth. We are putting a lot of focus on ecommerce and logistics. The IT services segment has done very well for us, we want to focus on that more,” added Moraje.
