12000 vacancies on grabs, e-commerce start-ups on a hiring spree especially in NCR region!

According to Economic Times online, the city of Gurgaon is headed for an unprecedented boom in the job space. Ever-mushrooming start-ups and e-commerce companies are generating thousands of vacancies in Gurgaon.

“Last year, business expansion had brought 7,000-8,000 vacancies but this year, the number will easily cross 12,000,” says Udit Mittal, managing director of Gurgaon-based Unison International Consulting.

Kuldeep Bhayana, entrepreneur and venture capitalist who helped set up 30 start-ups in Gurgaon early this year, is equally optimistic about its job market. “There is an array of new jobs in the market. And the best thing about the start-up culture is that the jobs are created across all verticals unlike the IT sector where boom generates jobs only for engineers. E-commerce companies are hiring people in support functions, operations, engineering, finance, etc,” he says.
