Mumbai: A large chunk of Indian population is optimistic about job opportunities in the country and has rated the national economy as ‘good’, according to a survey.
About 41 per cent respondents believe that the job opportunities in India are good and 43 per cent rate the country’s economy as good, according to the Michael Page’s India Job Confidence Index for Q3, 2015.
