The survey data reveal a 41 percent increase in job searches for teaching jobs between July 2016 and July 2019, according to global job site Indeed.
The data for this report were collected from the Indeed India platform, the company said on Wednesday. According to the survey, the surge in demand for teaching roles can be attributed to the development of digital media which has opened avenues to new roles such as online tutors and e-educators.

While in FY18 there was an increase of 14 percent in job-seeker interest for these roles and three years ago (2016 -17) there was a dip of 11 percent in job seeker interest towards teaching roles.
