The National capital region of Delhi -- which includes Noida and Gurgaon -- ranks second with 11 percent of tech jobs available in the country. And Pune is a surprise no. 3 with 10% of the IT related jobs, overtaking Hyderabad ( 9%), Mumbai (8%) and Chennai ( 7%).|
Bringing up the rear are Mohali ( Chandigarh) with 4% and Ahmedabad with 3%.
These are the findings of a survey conducted by Indeed, the leading global job site
According to a previous study by Indeed, Bangalore, is also the leading city in India for jobs related to blockchain, an upcoming segment in the technology space.
Other findings: While the actively job seeking age group of 20-29 year olds continue to show a relatively high level of interest in the technology sector – indeed, the age group is also the most actively hired; interestingly, senior job-seekers above the age of 55 are also showing significant interest in the sector. Conversely, the 40-49 age group shows the least interest in the sector.
Says Sashi Kumar, Managing Director, Indeed: “Today organizations must keep constantly evolving in order to keep pace with the advent of new technologies, be it artificial intelligence, machine learning, or big data analytics. New technologies bring with them opportunities for employment, as new job roles emerge in their wake. However, while there are ample jobs available in India, the need of the hour is talent that is adequately skilled to fulfil the responsibilities the job entails. Employers all over the world are in search of employees with the ability to continuously upskill themselves, and thus continue to stay relevant to the organisation.”
