Bangalore (Karnataka) [India], December 23 (ANI/NewsVoir): Recruitment marketplace Aasaanjobs is currently hosting a six days virtual job fair that brings employers across sectors and candidates/job seekers looking for grey collar and entry level jobs in an organisation.
Recruitment activity has been experiencing an uptick since September and the virtual job fair by Aasaanjobs confirms the same trend.

Aasaanjobs recruiters will also help with an initial round of screening and set up time slots for interviews with the companies participating. Interview chat rooms are available where job seekers can find common information on the jobs available, interview timings, etc.
The virtual job fair will serve as a panacea to those impacted during the pandemic and provides an opportunity to everyone to participate, regardless of their geographic location. In a recent study conducted by Aasaanjobs that surveyed 800 job seekers, company reputation emerged as the primary consideration to accept a job, followed closely by job location and compensation.
While the impact of the pandemic has been severely felt with nearly 80 percent of all respondents acknowledging having experienced some adverse impact of the pandemic, the sentiment currently is a positive one with hiring accelerating across sectors. Job seekers who had gone back home during the lockdown are willing to return for a job. The probability of those with permanent jobs to return is higher.
Among expectations from employers, medical insurance for self and family emerged as a key ask from job seekers followed by some security against layoffs.
