European Online Job Opportunities Expand

December 16, 2010 – The Monster Employment Index Europe, a monthly analysis of millions of online job opportunities culled from a large, representative selection of corporate career sites and job boards, reported a 22 percent increase in online job opportunities compared to year-earlier levels. Transport, post and logistics and production, manufacturing, maintenance and repair exhibited the most robust annual growth. Italy noted the largest jump in opportunities on a monthly basis, while Germany and Sweden had the sharpest annual growth. “Following significant growth over the past 10 months, recruitment activity held steady in November, with a number of sectors noting a typical slowdown in hiring as we approach the end of the year,” said Andrea Bertone, head of Monster Europe. “Annual growth trends are still robust among most sectors, with production and exports continuing to lead the way. In addition, Europe’s largest economy, Germany, has seen a significant increase in job opportunities over the past 12 months, which should be encouraging for job seekers in the region.”
