These include new jobs, career switches, and promotions in nearly 3,000 national and global companies, with the annual CTC ranging from a baseline of Rs 4.5 LPA to a max of Rs 1.80 crore, the company said. Hiring was majorly seen in marketing, data, and tech domains and about 50 per cent were placed in Mumbai, New Delhi, Bengaluru, and Chennai.

This was followed by Pune, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Noida, Gurgaon, and Ahmedabad, Karnataka, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu. Importantly, women professionals accounted for nearly two-thirds of those choosing to upskill for stronger career growth or re-enter the workforce through 'returnship' programmes.
