  1. This is an encouraging sign.
    This is an encouraging sign. However, the salaries are not picking up. i believe the HR departments are using this time to properly balance the salary growth which had grown out of proportion in the last 5-6 years.

  2. Please tell us how have you
    Please tell us how have you arrived at this figure? The methodology used and the actual figures. Timesjobs is right now in a mess. Most of the employees have resigned. The rest who havent got a job are still searching. They have got nothing to do so they have put up these figures to attract eyeballs to the website. Go search a job for yourself and then encourage others , otherwise dont fool people. What naukri does u need to follow that , so when naukri came out with the survey u also cannot remain away from being a copy cat.

  3. Cool… that’s a welcome
    Cool… that’s a welcome news. Infact , most of indian employers for last six months (barring IT) have been cautious. Their bottomline is quite strong but followed phrase “savings for the rainy day”. Many have started recruiting full-on in major metros.The report can be trusted coming from Times group.
