NEW DELHI: Hiring in February has seen an increase of 15 pct compared with the previous month, with the IT sector being in the focus, a report by a job portal said on Thursday.

"Though the Jobspeak index has shown just 1 pct Y-O-Y growth in February, the good news is the month-on-month growth of over 15 pct in February compared with January. We can expect the job market to be volatile for the next few months before it tends to move north again," V. Suresh, Chief Sales Officer, Naukri.com, said.

"Key industries like IT-Software and BPO/ITES saw an eight pct and 21 pct growth respectively in February compared with January," according to Naukri.com's JobSpeak Index -- a survey which tracks monthly hiring activities online.

According to the survey, among metros, Delhi/National Capital Region recorded 20 pct increase in jobs during February.

"Increase in hiring activity in major metro cities during February has contributed to the overall rise in hiring activity in the job market. The index for Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai saw a growth of 14 pct, 12 pct and 11 pct respectively as compared with January," it said.
