From health to jobs, Covid-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of life! Last year when the pandemic struck India, many sectors including the IT sector suffered huge losses, which led to massive layoffs, pay cuts and hiring freezes.
But now a lot of good news is trickling in and especially the IT job market in India is booming again. Almost after one-and-a-half-year into the pandemic, the job market is gradually experiencing high-activity along with salary growth as well. IT giants TCS, Infosys, Wipro and other big tech companies are aggressively hiring candidates across the country this year.
Reports suggest that big IT companies are now offering higher pay packages in the range of 70-120 per cent. Referring to the Indeep Report, which analysed the impact of the pandemic on India’s job market, a national news portal (thefederal.com) reported that the demand for IT professionals has risen as much as 400%.
The report noted that the demand for niche and super niche skill-centric jobs is witnessing a surge. And not just jobs offers, companies are also offering higher salary packages and even bonuses to joinees.
The report noted that full-time engineers are being offered salary hikes in between the range of 70-120% while last year, the figure was in the range of 20-30%.
