Kerala has been facing job crunch, as job hunters and job seekers from across the state face job pressure from the state government.
According to the state labour department, the job hunting pressure is especially intense in the state’s northern districts like Malappad, Kottayam, Palakkad and Kannur.
Job seekers are also finding it harder to find work.
The state government has said that the state is looking into the issue of job hunting pressures.
In a statement, the state minister for labour Pramod Kumar said that they are looking into how to make the state a better place to find a job.
According to a survey conducted by the Malappadhoo-based job seeker website, almost 90 percent of job seekers have been told that the job hunt pressure is increasing.
The survey also showed that the demand for jobs is very high, especially in the agricultural and hospitality sectors.
“More and more, people are going to jobs like food, hospitality, food service, nursing and construction,” said a job seeker in Kottalayam who asked not to be named.
“We are not just finding people but also finding jobs.”
Another job seeker said that job seekers are facing job pressure due to the government’s job creation policy, which is aimed at boosting the number of jobs in the country.
“It has become very hard for us to find jobs because we are losing our jobs.
We are getting unemployment and we are getting the job-hunting pressure,” said the job seeker.
