Looking for a job in India? Hiring for these jobs is on the rise in 2023, according to LinkedIn


Workers who are “solving problems” in health-care and those who are driving business growth in an uncertain economic environment will see more opportunities this year, according to LinkedIn.

Its latest Jobs on the Rise data revealed spikes in hiring for growth specialists, technical workers and health-care professionals in Asia — among other jobs expected to grow in hiring well into 2023. 

Jobs that help companies do more with less in this uncertain time are rising. As companies need to better align their sales, marketing, and customer success efforts with a common goal of driving revenue growth, these roles continue to rise and drive efficiency and profitability.

Researchers from LinkedIn examined jobs from January 2018 to July 2022 to calculate the growth rate for each job title in a specific country. 

LinkedIn added that for a job to be ranked, a job title needs to see consistent growth on the platform, as well as have “grown to a meaningful size” by 2022.

Job trends in India

In India, jobs that focus on business growth and acquisition of new customers are growing — such as sales development, business development and demand generation, said LinkedIn.

Such jobs make up almost half of its list of jobs with growing demand in India. 

“Jobs that help companies do more with less in this uncertain time are rising,” said Pooja Chhabria, career expert and head of editorial for Asia-Pacific at LinkedIn.

“As companies need to better align their sales, marketing, and customer success efforts with a common goal of driving revenue growth, these roles continue to rise and drive efficiency and profitability.” 

LinkedIn also observed a growth in technical jobs such as user experience writer, technical program manager and insights analyst in India, attributing it to an increased focus on AI and cybersecurity. 

The hiring rate in Asia-Pacific is still relatively high despite recession fears, says LinkedIn

The rising demand for health-care professionals due to Covid-19 is apparent in India as well. What’s interesting, said Chhabria, is the growth of remote jobs in the health-care sector. 

“With remote work gaining acceptance in India, we are seeing a rise in demand for roles particularly in the health-care industry like medical scribe, credentialing specialist [and] health-care recruiter, offering more flexibility.”

As companies direct more focus to boosting sustainability, green jobs like sustainability manager are on the rise too, added LinkedIn.

Sustainability roles feature in the fast-growing jobs lists of 13 countries, including Australia, Brazil, France, Germany and India.
