Growth in searches for teaching jobs has jumped 40 per cent in 2018-19, a job site said.

The impressive increase could be attributed to the development of digital media which has opened avenues to new roles such as online tutors and e-educators, the site Indeed said in a statement.

The data revealed a 41 per cent increase in job searches for teaching jobs from July 2016 to July 2019.

Growth in searches for teacher jobs has been the highest in 2018-19 witnessing a 40 per cent increase.

There was an increase of 14 per cent in job-seeker interest for these roles during 2017-18, while three years ago (2016-17) there was a dip of 11 per cent in job seeker interest towards teaching roles.

“The advancement of technology and e-learning has led to the rise of online tutor and e-educator jobs”, it said.

The new-age profession does come with its perks.

While the average annual salary for a teacher in India is 2,19,804 and goes up to 5,88,000 per annum; the average annual salary of an online tutor in the country is 4,80,000 and goes up to 9,25,000 per annum, Indeed said.
