The Global Job Openings to Job-seekers Ratio for "General/HR/Legal" drops after the number of job-seekers with experience in that area increases by 1.51.


The operators of bilingual job board Daijob.com, Daijob Global Recruiting Co.,Ltd, have created a summary of the Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio for the end of February 2015. The Global Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio is a calculation of the supply-demand balance between job openings which require business conversation level in at least 2 languages and the number of job-seekers who are equipped with that ability (No. of Job Openings / No. of Job Seekers). A high ratio indicates that there is a high number of jobs available for a low number of job-seekers.

◆Global Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio by Occupation


The highest ratio by occupation for February was "Finance/Accounting" at 3.23, an increase of 0.27 over the previous year. This was followed by "General/HR/Legal" at 2.51, a decrease of 1.82 points, and "Finance/Banking/Securities/Insurance" at 2.39, a decrease of 1.07 over the previous month. The category "Finance/Accounting" has been in the TOP 3 for 3 consecutive months. The number of "accounting" jobs increased by a factor of 1.27 over the previous month, while "Certified Public Accountant" and "Tax Accountant" positions have also increased by 1.27 and 1.53 respectively. Although the job category "General/HR/Legal" has been in the TOP 3 for 9 consecutive months, the ratio dropped by 1.82 points as the number of job-seekers with experience in that area increased by a factor of 1.51. The ratio for "Finance/Banking/Securities/Insurance" entered the TOP 3 after exceeding 2.0 for the first time since June 2014.

◆Global Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio by Industry


After increasing by 0.62 points, the "Finance/Insurance" industry has the highest ratio at 1.79. This was followed by "Electrical/Gas/Heating/Water" at 1.60 after an increase of 0.62, and "Manufacturing" at 1.58 after an increase of 0.06.

Just like February 2014, the overall Global Job Openings to Job-seekers ratio for February 2015 remained under 1 at 0.96. Comparing to the end of 2014 shows that while the number of available jobs has increased by 30%, the number of job-seekers has increased by 50%. This may be because the new fiscal year will start in April, such that companies and employees alike are looking to line themselves up for the coming year.
