While TikTok is firing, Made in India short video sharing platforms are hiring

Ban turns out to be blessing in disguise as Indian companies ride on nationalist, anti-China sentiment

There is light at the lend of the tunnel. Many out-of-job TikTok employees can breathe easier now. The good news for them is that Indian companies have already started hiring.

After banning Chinese apps last year on June 29, the government of India recently sent notices to them affirming that the order to block them will continue.

Just after the government's notice, ByteDance, the company which owns TikTok, wrote to its employees on January 27 saying that they are scaling down their India operations.

ByteDance slashing its TikTok workforce in India has put around 2,000 jobs at risk.
