Job hunters are playing down their skills and experience to match the required role, even if it means accepting lower designation and pay, at a time the job market is turning tight. Multiple executives from recruitment firms said candidates in the junior and middle order in IT, banking, and retail sectors are diluting their resumes and skill sets for jobs in manufacturing and allied industries.
“Managers are willing to move in as individual contributors and not ask for a team lead position, salaries quoted are at par or even reduced, and even the designations are negotiable,” said Anshuman Das, the chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder of Careernet, a talent solutions provider.
