Top jobs now in telecom, pharma : Hunting for a job? Read on. According to online job players, opportunities are slowly pointing at sectors like pharmaceutical, research and development (R&D), healthcare services, telecommunication and retail. Sunrise sectors infotech and IT-enabled services (including call centres) that created a boom in the job market continue to offer jobs but at a slower pace.

Another trend within the job market, as pointed out by Jobstreet.com, is the upward movement in jobs available in the IT and ITES sector. "Earlier, most of the job postings on our site within IT was for application programming (low-end work) but now the job postings for IT and ITES are also moving up the value chain," JobStreet.com India general manager operations and marketing Arijit Sarkar said. With the success of the Indian software and ITES industry, global companies are more confident in outsourcing high-end work to India. "These high-end areas are R&D in product development, embedded software and chip designing," Sarkar said.
