Quick facts-

1. As organisations continue to ride and leverage the wave of digitisation, the IT & Technology industry remains the topmost sought-after industry both in terms of supply and demand between January 2021 – July 2021.

2. Sales is the top job function in high supply while Admin & Office is the highest in demand between January 2021 – July 2021.

3. Notably, the Hospitality & Hotel industry is among the top 5 industries high in demand but does not appear among the highest in supply, which means job seekers in this industry are still in need of work after the disruption caused by the global pandemic.
