Will we see a ‘new’ world, filled with new job opportunities?

It has probably not gone unnoticed that India is facing a massive unemployment and recession crisis as a result of the novel coronavirus. It’s estimated that over 120 million Indians are currently without jobs.

But, as the world adjusts to what might very well be a ‘new normal,’ some sectors rather see an increase in demand, as well as new innovative solutions, opening up for new job opportunities in India.

One of the sectors that have created solutions to battle these COVID-challenges is the online gambling industry.

The sectors shedding light on Indian jobs

The iGaming industry is, overall, increasing its presence in India. The result is more native products, like Teen Patti, Andar Bahar, Jhandi Munda, and unique Bollywood tables.

For live casino providers, however, the pandemic has brought with it a new challenge. How do you live stream a table when live casino studios and land-based casinos are closed?

The answer lies in remote streaming and hybrid tables, allowing dealers to continue streaming from home.

These new tables might open up the live dealer industry to the masses of India, allowing those with talent and possibility to stream themselves delve into the business.

As the world moves online, cybersecurity is key

The last six months have seen an increase in online attacks such as hacks of Zoom meetings and Ransomware attacks. As more people work from home, the demand for cybersecurity personnel increases.

There’s currently a high demand for Analysts, Ethical Hackers, Engineers, Consultants, Pen Testers, and more within the Indian cybersecurity sector.

Huge demand makes Amazon open 50,000 new jobs in India

Mega e-commerce company Amazon is noticing the online trend of ordering necessities online. They recently stated that, due to the much higher demand in these times, they are opening another 50,000 jobs, in India alone.

These seasonal jobs will vary, ranging from part-time positions for Amazon Flex-contractors to various fulfillment centre-positions, and delivery networks.

Amazon comments on the situation:

The associates will join other thousands of associates across Amazon India’s fulfillment and delivery network and assist them to pick, pack, ship, and deliver customers’ orders more efficiently.
