Recently, in a survey by human resource (HR) solutions company PeopleStrong, Delhi emerged as the most preferred region for hiring in telecom and allied sectors.

In 2017, hiring intent in this sector is expected to increase from 16% to 20% in 2017, PeopleStrong's latest India Hiring Intent survey shows.

"Telecom and allied sectors have been witnessing lot of action in the recent times, resulting in a positive hiring intent,” Pankaj Bansal, chief executive officer of PeopleStrong, told ET.

"It is interesting to see the interest of telecom and allied industry employers in hiring from Delhi. It could be attributed to the availability of engineering and general graduate talent pool in this area or to the fact the many of telecom and allied industries are headquartered in Delhi NCR,” he further added.

The survey also highlighted the fact that the most preferred age for hiring in telecom and allied sectors is 22 to 25 years which shows a clear inclination towards young candidates. Gender diversity is still not the number one priority.

India Hiring Intent survey, a part of India Skills Report 2017, is a joint initiative by PeopleStrong, global talent assessment company Wheebox, Linkedin, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Association of Indian University (AIU), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
