Jobs in India will be back by the end of this year as most global enterprises are likely to resume their expansion activities, after having put them on hold for over a couple of years now, said Pamela Berklich, senior vice president, Kelly Services, a global recruitment process outsourcing services firm.
“India, China and Latin America are high-growth geographies and therefore no global corporate can afford to put their expansion and hiring activities in these geographies on the back burner. Jobs will be back across domains of IT, e-commerce, healthcare, pharma , retail and telecom,” she said .
Early this year, Career-Builder, one of the largest online employment websites, surveyed the hiring outlook for 2013 in the ten largest world economies and found that India and Brazil were the most confident, with more than two-thirds of employers in these markets planning to add full-time, permanent headcount. Hiring activity in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) was projected to be significantly higher than in other markets.
