AasaanJobs, an HR marketplace connecting employers, consultants and job seekers on Friday announced that it has witnessed a massive spike in job applications from candidates in the second quarter of the year, recording profile upgrades from over 260,000 candidates.
The Banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sector registered the maximum surge on the platform, with a growth rate of 17.70 percent. This was followed by the recruitment, staffing and RPO sector with 13.80 percent, IT- software sector with 10.10 percent, BPO-ITES with 7.30 percent, e-commerce with 6.70 percent and FMCG and F&B industry with 4.40 percent growth.
“The amazing number of profile updating indicates a marked improvement in the job market as well if we compare it with the situation that existed over the past quarters. Trends also testify the fact, how BFSI is leading the most in-demand industry, followed closely by other sectors and disciplines such as HR, IT and ITES, e-commerce and F&B. The pro-digitization and automation endeavours of the government have added the much-needed fillip to the banking sector,” said Dinesh Goel, CEO, Aasaanjobs.
There were about 260,000 job seekers who applied on the platform, and around 7000 jobs were posted this quarter.
