After the global economic meltdown, many companies stopped the hiring process. In fact, many companies had to cut down on their manpower to stay afloat. With economy recovering across countries, manpower consultants suggest that hiring or recruitment process is increasing. Hiring is not particular to any one sector but across sectors. Some sectors have recovered faster than others and are keen on hiring. Retail and telecommunication are two sectors where hiring process are in full swing. Information Technology sector which was hit badly by recession is also on the recovery mode. But the positions they are hiring is for key roles such as programmers and not on a higher bandwidth.
Many companies are hiring although with caution but the number of positions has been increasing steadily. Real estate is another sector which was worst hit during the recession. However, this is one sector which is yet to recover from the consequence of recession. The real estate market is still down as people are cautious and are on tight budget and know one is interested in selling or buying property. Banking is another sector which saw many lay offs during the recession. Many recognized banks went bankrupt and millions lost their jobs. This is another sector which cannot accommodate any more hiring and are working on less manpower. Even in retail and telecommunication the hiring is concentrated on key sales and marketing jobs.
Though the good news is, hiring has been increasing; companies are hiring people in the lower bandwidth or salary levels. Higher bandwidth or high salaried positions are few in numbers and not many companies want to increase their cost by recruiting them. However, hiring people in the lower salary levels helps the company with the workload and also does not put a burden on their finance.
