This article is based on data from MeetFrank Job Market Insights. For additional and per-track reports, visit this page.

While the recovery process slowly and cautiously goes on worldwide, the number of coronavirus cases in Europe has recently begun to increase again. We’ll see how this will affect the global job market. 😷

In our previous report, we had shared that the number of global job applications in the MeetFrank app was a bit higher in July vs June – there were still lots of companies looking for talent worldwide. 👍

If you’re ready, let’s find out more about the July and August stats and discover the ‘mosts’ of the global job market. 🥁
