The urban unemployment rate had more than doubled to 20.9% in the period April-June 2020 from the 9.1% in the corresponding quarter in 2019, data released by the government showed. Young workers upto the age of 29 years were particularly more susceptible as urban unemployment in this age group was 34.7%!
A lot of this can be attributed to the ramifications of the pandemic and it can be argued that the unemployment rates have almost reversed back to pre-2020 levels. However, the fact remains that the state and the future of the job market of salaried working class continues to be in a delicate and vulnerable balance governed by the brute forces of nature & markets.
You would not be the first to wish that you and only you should be in charge of your career. And rightly so! About 38% of job seekers in India are worried about too many recruitment stages, 32% of them extensively long application documents and 74% professionals say they have reservations about networking, LinkedIn Job Seeker report stated.
Amongst other things, salaried professionals face umpteen challenges in career growth alone. You would have faced some of these too like,
- Difficulty in switching from domains, for e.g. from Sales to Marketing; from Tech to PM, etc.
- Not getting shortlisted for interviews due of your college degree or low marks or career background
- Not being able to convert your interviews due to lack of communication or confidence, etc.
- Stagnated career and not getting a well-deserved promotion
- Getting paid less for the amount and quality of work you put in.
