Leading job portal Naukri.com said on Tuesday that hiring was happening in selective sectors.

"Selective hiring is happening across most sectors now. However, the next few months will be challenging for the overall recruitment market in India," Info Edge India managing director and CEO Hitesh Oberoi said.

Last month, auto and pharma segments continued to take fresh talent while construction, insurance, oil & gas and ITES sectors went slow on hiring activities.

Naukri Job Speak Index -- an indicator of online job demand -- climbed to 1,210 in June from 1,194 in May.

Compared to June 2011 -- when the index stood at 1,129 -- hiring trends were better.

"IT sector which is the largest employer of skilled workforce has also slowed down hiring plans and lateral hiring across companies has almost been brought to a halt," the statement noted.

According to Naukri.com, most industries have started feeling the brunt of a slowdown with sectors like construction, ITES, oil & gas and insurance witnessing a decline in recruitment trends on a year-on-year basis.
