Online hiring activity in India improved further in October driven by recruitments in sectors such as engineering, automotive and telecom, according to a survey. The Monster.com's employment index, a monthly gauge of the country's online job demand, rose by 3 points (up 2.27 per cent) to 135 in October from 132 in September.

This is the second consecutive month of improvement in online hiring activity as the month of September had witnessed an increase of six points from 126 points in August.

On an year-on-year basis, the index level has risen by 13 per cent from 119 points recorded in October 2011, jobs portal Monster.com said.

'The double digit gains in the Monster Employment Index reflect the confidence of Indian businesses in the current economy,' Monster.com managing director (India/Middle-East/ South East Asia) Sanjay Modi said.

‘Major sectors like IT, engineering, automotive, telecom, healthcare, and education have shown positive year on year growth,’ Modi added.
