According to a recent report from the Indeed job site, Canada and the UK have gained in popularity amongst international jobseekers, including Indians. “There has been a fall in share of searches for jobs in the US, presumably owing to its immigration policies, and a large portion of jobseeker interest has been picked up by Canada and the UK. The searches are primarily for high-paying tech, research and finance roles,” the report noted.
