What are the job seekers on the net like?

As many as 55-60% of the Internet users in India are seeking jobs on the net. And given that Internet penetration will only increase, Indicus predicts online job seekers will grow three-four folds during the next decade, to reach 100 million by 2020

Internet penetration in India has been slow and mainly an urban phenomenon. Various estimates place this figure between 50 and 55 million. Interestingly, a very significant proportion of the Internet users are job seekers. Research by Juxt Consult indicates that as many as 65% have visited job sites. All of them may not be active job seekers, but clearly a lot of them are.

The three-four leading job sites and the size of their resume databases (as indicated on their sites) indicate that there are between 15 and 22 million active jobseekers on each of these sites. Even if one assumes that a large proportion of these are present on all the leading databases, one can realistically assume a figure of 28 to 30 million active job seekers, which is abut 55-60% of all the people on the net at present.



Affluent households with chief wage earners in their middle age form a sizeable segment of urban SEC A households. As the second largest SEC A sub-segment, this group is comprised of one-quarter of all urban SEC A households. The chief wage earners in this group are well-educated businessmen or professionals, and are generally in the age group of 35-44 years. The defining characteristic is that they are all married with young children. Households have, therefore, usually three-four members, and most families have one or two children. Though this segment includes both joint and nuclear families, the households are predominantly nuclear families and just 16% have one or two senior citizens.
