The ‘search’ for jobs in sectors such as hospitality and tourism has increased since May amid easing lockdown measures in the country. This information is given in a report.
According to the report of the global job site ‘INDID’, during May to August 2020, search for jobs has increased by 30 percent. The data shows that the country’s hospitality or hotel and tourism sectors are returning on track. When compared to last year, the reduction in jobs in these areas has come down to 58 percent in September. In May this year, the decrease was 69 percent.
The report is based on searches and jobs on Indide’s site during March to August. The report said that jobs in the tourism industry declined by 49 percent from March to August compared to the same period last year.
Overall, jobs declined 56 percent in August compared to the same month last year. At the same time, the search for jobs decreased by 44 percent compared to the same period last year. The report said that the search for jobs in the tourism sector has been steadily increasing since May.
“After the shock of the hospitality sector due to the corona virus epidemic, the perception of job seekers for these roles is improving, which is encouraging,” said Shashi Kumar, managing director of Indide India. Kumar said that one out of every eight jobs in India is directly or indirectly linked to the tourism sector. This sector has a significant contribution in the country’s economy.
