On June 16, Lithuania saw its last day in lockdown. Now the country’s getting ready to open up again like most countries in Europe. 🎉
Wondering what has changed in the past 2 weeks? Want to learn more about job openings and market competitiveness? 🤓
🔊 Spoiler alert: Let’s dive into the world of stats from the Lithuanian job market. Now, it’s the rising star of remote job opportunities, which welcomes talent from around the world. 🌍
Job Market Overview: May vs June
At the beginning of June, the number of active job openings was down by about 22% in the Lithuanian job market.
So, here is what has changed in the past few weeks. The number of job openings has decreased by approximately 24%. 📉
There has been a very slight decrease in the number of job applications. This doesn’t quite cover the drop in the openings.
Despite the decrease in the number of job openings at the beginning of June, finding a job is almost at the ‘OK-level’ in Lithuania.
Unlike in Estonia, design candidates have more opportunities in this market. If you’re a designer and looking for a job in Lithuania, the chances are you may get one in the near future.
The Marketing & PR & Media professionals are in a tight spot. Sadly, it’s challenging for them to find a job in the Lithuanian job market nowadays. 👀
Similar to Estonia and Finland, offered salaries are higher than expected salaries in Lithuania. 📈
There has been a decrease in expected salaries, whereas companies don’t seem to have made any changes in their offerings lately.
Job Applications in the Top 6 Specialties in June 2020 vs 2019
In the past few months, we’ve been discussing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic aftershock. 🌍😷
What about ‘before corona’ times? What were the stats for job applications in the top 6 specialties last year in the Lithuanian job market? 🤔
Let’s start with 3 key points:
✅ Similar to Estonia and Finland, the Software Engineering industry has seen a significant increase in the number of job applications.
✅ But in Lithuania, this industry doesn’t rank in first place. Apparently, sales & business development job seekers are the most active group in Lithuania nowadays.
✅Unlike Estonia and Finland, one industry has made a huge leap in the number of job applications: Marketing & PR & Media. This could be either related to the recent layoffs or the growing interest in the sector.
Compared to the number of applications submitted in mid-June 2019, all industries saw more interest from job seekers.
This may be related to the recent layoffs due to the pandemic and also the growing interest in the Lithuanian job market.
