Chart of the Day: Why you never have to worry of not finding a job
Job ads for professional positions rising since February.
Here's from Andrea Ross, managing director, Robert Walters for Singapore, Malaysia & Vietnam:
Recruitment advertising in Singapore saw healthy growth in Q1 2012 with an 11.4% increase quarter on quarter and a 33.7% rise on Q1 2011 figures.
The HR sector saw job advertising increase 13.9% as companies undertake significant talent transformation projects and move towards more flexible workforces.
The financial services sector, however, continues to be a challenging market with growth confined principally to those areas subject to heightened regulation.
Business development increased by 4.6% as companies sought to invest in revenue generators, while logistics recruitment advertising grew by 19.6%.
“The holidays in the New Year restricted recruitment activity in January but February and March were very positive as recruitment advertising activity levels improved. We saw significant increases of advertising across most sectors and double digit growth in logistics and customer service advertising.”
