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. 🥁
Job Market Overview
As of the first week of August, there has been a decline in the number of job openings. 📉
On the other hand, the number of job applications seems to have slightly decreased as well. Let’s see what the rest of August will bring.
The global market has been competitive for job seekers in general. The needle is pointing to the yellow ‘challenging’ level for now. 🤔
While it’s even more difficult for Sales and Business Development professionals, Data & Analytics experts will find it much easier compared to others. 🍀
What about the average and expected salaries?
The global trends are no different to the situation in Finland, Estonia, and Lithuania. It seems the average offered salaries exceed the expectations of job seekers.
Although both have decreased a bit lately, there is still a visible gap between them. 👀
Top 6 specialties with the most applications in July
Which industries have had their names in lights in July?
The top industry in the global job market with the most applications in July has been Customer Support, unlike in Estonia, Finland and Lithuania.
If your expertise is this industry, well, you’re the lucky one nowadays! 🤓🍀
Software Engineering, the cool kid at school, ranks second. 👯
The list continues with Design and Marketing & PR & Media industries. The former could hardly find a place in the top 6 in our other reports for Estonia, Finland, and Lithuania.
So, Design is much more popular worldwide than in these countries. 😎 This could also be related to the opportunities and number of job openings as well.
