These jobs come with 0-2 years of experience.

Sharing his opinion on the job vacancies, Kaushik Banerjee, VP and business head at TeamLease and Freshersworld said the 70 percent decline during the lockdown was unseen even during the peak of the 2008-09 financial crisis. Job vacancies are up significantly from the March-April period. 

“Companies took tough calls - including layoffs - in the March-May period. But right after, they assessed their business potential and geared up for profiles they need to hire,” Banerjee said.

Even Pawan Goyal, chief business officer at said fresher jobs are down by two-thirds when compared to the pre-lockdown period, but still “around 900 companies have posted jobs for freshers in June (as on June 25), which adds up to 3,800 jobs.”  

Meanwhile, Sashi Kumar, managing director at Indeed India said: "The job market for freshers will likely be tougher than we have seen for a number of years. Fewer available jobs, combined with greater competition for those jobs, will squeeze out some new graduates. Freshers may need to consider their options and improve their qualifications and skills to make themselves more appealing in a tough job market."

Economic Times furter reports that recruitment and staffing firm CIEL HR Services, is currently hiring candidates for white-collar jobs which is now at 40 percent of pre-COVID-19 levels, said CEO Aditya Mishra. 

“Other roles such as finance, HR, admin, operations, engineering, production and quality are seeing less hiring, mostly to fill critical gaps in an organisation,” Mishra said.
