According to the Naukri Jobspeak Index, the festive season and year-end hiring activity has picked up in all major metros as compared to last year. Pawan Goyal, Chief Business Officer, Naukri.com (Naukri.com), said that although IT continues to increase recruitment, it is heartening to see a return from the sectors of hospitality and travel, retail and real estate.
