If the world was a huge classroom, Lithuania would be one of the countries in Europe that scored a good mark in the coronavirus exam, also coming up with some creative solutions. 🎆 At least we really truly hope so.

If you’re new to the Lithuanian job market, here’s a short tour. Lithuania has proved to be a durable market in the Baltics, succeeding to remain strong during the coronavirus pandemic compared to most countries. But every good story has a twist.😕

In our previous report, we shared that the Lithuanian job market had seen a decrease in the number of job openings after a long period of growth. But it still ranked better than Estonia and Finland in this category.

Job Market Overview

A week ago, the number of active job openings decreased by 19.9% as compared to the previous week. Wondering what today’s news is?
