Gurgaon headed for a job boom worth 12,000 vacancies
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.
This is the best opportunity for employees who are unsatisfied with their latest appraisal. The promising employment scene in the city has become as a relief for those who feel their increments were not motivating enough to stay put in their current jobs.
Some interesting updates from the Gurgaon job market:
• Foodpanda, a popular online food delivery company, based in Gurgaon, plans to hire 2,000 employees in the next one year.
