The IT & telecom sectors clocked a whopping 31 per cent rise in demand for talent, with the overall TimesJobs.com RecruiteX demand index growing by 18 per cent between March 2014 and March 2015.

“The growth of Indian economy has fueled MNC interest in India resulting in rising demand for professionals with experience in Indian contexts. Further, the trend of tech professionals from large organizations making a move to join startups as the top bosses is further pushing up attrition and demand for skilled professionals. This trend is expected to continue in the coming quarter,” said, Vivek Madhukar, COO, TimesJobs.com.
