Mr. Ambarish Raghuvanshi, CFO Info Edge (India) Ltd said “A holistic
view over the year shows us that jobs continue to be created as there is a
10% upswing in hiring y-o-y. Overall it is a positive sign; however, employers seem to be following a cautious approach now and are keeping a close
watch on the macroeconomic environment.Given the weak ecnomic
environment in 2012-13, any job creation is a positive sign. From this point
onwards, job creation will track macro-economic indicators.”

METHODOLOGY
The Naukri Job Speak index from Feb’10 includes both online jobs as wells
as jobs acquired from existing clients by our tele-calling team. Although the
tele-calling data is a relatively small component of the entire job postings on
Naukri, addition of the same to the index gives a more holistic picture of the
Indian job market. Therefore, the Job index which was till now based on the
July 2008, has been realigned to take care of the effect of the Jobs added by
the tele-sales team.
On the basis of job listings added to the site every month, the data shows an
increase or decrease in the index. To calculate the index, job listings added
to the site in July 2008 have been taken as 1000. The subsequent months
have been indexed with data of July 2008. The monthly report shows hiring
trends across industry sectors, geography and functional areas. There might
be high volatility for certain fringe cases like smaller cities, niche industries
etc. owing to a small base, but more than 42000 clients using Naukri.com
leads to high reliability of the data.
Naukri Job Speak not only talks about sectors or cities but also about the
total job movement on site. The total jobs on site are defined as:

Total Jobs: Jobs Added + Jobs Refreshed
Where a refreshed job is any job that was posted earlier, however has been
refreshed during the month and therefore indicates that the position is still
open.
Disclaimer
The data is only representative of the listings on Naukri.com. Our analytics
team has used statistical techniques to derive insights which might be useful
for our users/stake holders/ audiences. There may be a statistical margin of
error
