Reflecting on the trends of TimesJobs RecruiteX for October 2019 edition, Sanjay Goyal, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig said, “The Consumer Durables/FMCG and Retail sectors have become the new all-weather hiring sectors. Despite the market stagnation, both these sectors are considering talent intake.
