The year 2014 is coming with a bag full of hopes for the job seekers. They can look forward to a prosperous new year as the job market is expecting more than 850,000 new openings across various sectors, including Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and healthcare, says a survey. Coming against the backdrop of uncertain economic conditions, the projected number of new jobs in the next year is higher than the estimated 790,000 employment opportunities created this year, according to the survey by recruitment platform MyHiringClub.com.
"Last calendar year was not good either for job seekers or for employers due to uncertain and fluctuated economical and political conditions. 2014 is coming with positive vibes for job-seekers and expected to create 850,000 new jobs in different sectors," says Rajesh Kumar, CEO, MyHiringClub.com.
Besides FMCG, the country is expecting more jobs in healthcare, IT, retail and hospitality sectors. In addition to that, the survey says that all the opportunities will be projecting for the organized sector. The findings are the outcome of the study conducted among more than 5,600 firms across 12 industry sectors. "Finding employees who have employability or job readiness skills that help fit into and remain in the work environment is a real problem and threatening to growth. These issues need to be addressed on priority," says Kumar.
