It's raining jobs on the Internet. Online recruitment posted 14% growth in August, driven by segments such as home appliances, BFSI and FMCG, and the job outlook for coming months looks sanguine, says a report.

The Monster Employment Index for August stood at 279, a 14% jump over the same period a year ago when it stood at 244. The August index registered a slight improvement from 274 in July.

"While sectors such as home appliances, BFSI and FMCG continue to exhibit growth, other sectors such as real estate, retail, BPO-IT, production and manufacturing await revival. The overall market, however, continues to be dynamic owing to various socio-economic factors and technological revolution," Sanjay Modi, MD, APAC and Middle-East, Monster.com, said.

Amid the festive season, the home appliances sector leads the hiring chart with a 54% year-on-year growth in August. Online hiring in banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) grew 35% in August from a year ago.

He noted that the "new GST tax regime is expected to have a positive impact on ease of doing business, thereby making it conducive for foreign investors and companies. The job market also is looking forward to a boost, however, its impact on reasonable job growth is going to take some time".
