When you need a new job, check out the chatrooms of the top 100 companies

The first day after the Narendra Modi-led NDA government took power, I sat in the office of a small software firm in northern Karnataka and typed in a search query.

A few seconds later, a message popped up.

“Hello!

You are looking for a new position in Hyderabad.”

The company, Telugu Desai, has an office on the outskirts of Hyderabad, but its staff work remotely.

“Our team is all over the world.

I have found one in Hyderabadi who is keen to do work in Telangana.

They are not too bad, but they are not very flexible.

You must be prepared to do a lot of work for them,” I was told.

The Telugu company was not the only one to receive such a message.

Across the country, many companies were looking for talent to work in the digital and social media fields.

It was the beginning of the end of the online job market.

The impact of the economic downturn on job vacancies and the availability of skilled manpower was obvious to many.

While employment remained strong, many jobs were not available in sectors like healthcare, education, and other sectors where the demand for talent was high.

The government was forced to act.

The government launched a series of measures to help job seekers find work.

It also made it easier for companies to hire.

But what was also surprising was the extent to which the new government was willing to help.

On July 24, 2016, the first day of the new Narendra Modi government, the government announced that it would give new jobs a month’s notice to job seekers, allowing them to get new jobs within a month.

This would provide an incentive for job seekers to apply for new jobs.

It would also give the government an incentive to encourage job seekers in the areas of health and education, where there was a shortage of skilled workers.

The first job seekers were offered a month to apply.

The next month, the notification was updated to give job seekers a month after the new date to apply, as well.

In July 2017, the deadline to apply had been extended from the previous day to the next day.

And the deadline for people who have applied for jobs in the last six months has been extended to the last two weeks of July, 2019.

On August 15, 2019, the day the government gave new job seekers the deadline, the NDA was in power.

The BJP had been in power for three years and its promise to create a new model of governance had not gone down well with many voters.

However, the fact that the Modi government was the first to extend the deadline made many people happy.

The next month was not a very bad month for job hunters.

The number of people seeking new jobs dropped sharply.

By the end, the number of job seekers seeking new work in Hyderabor was almost halved.

In January 2020, the month after Prime Minister Narendra Modi took over as the BJP government was in office, there were almost 50,000 job seekers.

By June 2020, there was barely any work to be had in the IT sector.

In the past two years, the unemployment rate in the country had dropped by half, from 10% to 4.5%.

However, by the time I sat down for this interview, the numbers had risen again, and by the end I had seen the same unemployment rate twice.

For those looking for work in India, the current economic situation is not a pleasant one.

I met a man who had applied for a job in Hyderabi in March 2018.

He told me that he had spent his entire life in the same company, and he had only recently started his new job.

But the people in the company had told him that they were not interested in hiring him.

It seemed that the people of Hyderabad had lost hope in the future.

I felt a sense of loss, of desperation.
