New Delhi: Lockdown-driven layoffs and fear of job loss have resulted in an increase of at least 30 per cent in job-seekers’ resumes in the past 30-45 days, according to at least half a dozen recruitment firms ET spoke to.
Sectors such as entertainment, hospitality, aviation, tourism, travel and retail, real estate, manufacturing and construction have been among the worst-hit due to the lockdown. Workers from these sectors are therefore at the forefront of those seeking new job opportunities.
Placement firm TeamLease Services has received 22,367 resumes in May from hospitality sectors alone, up a staggering 444 per cent from 4,109 in the previous month.
Professionals who are proactively looking out have either been handed out pink slips or are facing job threats as their companies take the restructuring route, said executives aware of the matter.
