Electronics (Appliances/Semi-conductors) Hits Record High

Global Job Postings to Job-Seekers Ratio of July 2016 hits 1.40.


Daijob Global Recruiting Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Human Holdings Co., Ltd. headed by Mr. Yuji Shinohara, has summarized the Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio of July 2016.

※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

By analyzing the Global Job Postings to Job-Seekers ratio of occupation, “Electronics (Appliances/Semi-conductors)” takes first place. Compared to last month, “Electronics (Appliances/Semi-conductors)” increased by 5.33 points with a ratio of 8.33 and hits record high since August of 2013. Next, “General Affairs/HR/Legal” increases by 3.81 points with a high ratio of 7.06 (In December 2014, the ratio was 7.07). Lastly, “Medical/Welfare/Nursing” increases by 2.52 points with a ratio of 5.44. For this month, the top 3 occupations all have a high ratio over 5.0.
Regarding the high ratio of “Electronics (Appliances/Semi-conductors)” we believe this has happened due to the number of job openings being average and the number of job seekers is below half. For “General Affairs/HR/Legal”, the number of job openings is over 135% compared to last month, but the number of job seekers is 62%. Lastly, for “Medical/Welfare/Nursing” the number of job openings compared to last month is 119%, while the number of job seekers is 64%, which could be the cause of the high ratio.

◆Global Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio by Industry

By analyzing the Global Job Postings to Job-Seekers ratio by industry, “Electricity/Gas/Heating/Water Supply” takes first place with an increase of 8.20 points with a ratio of 9.00. Next, “Finance/Insurance” increases by 0.75 points with a ratio of 4.38. Lastly, “Agriculture/Mining” increases by 1.94 points with a ratio of 3.75.

For “Electricity/Gas/Heating/Water Supply” the number of job openings doubled compared to last month, however the numbers of job seekers are below half. “Agriculture/Mining” the number of job-openings remains the same, but the numbers of job-seekers are below half, which could be the cause of the high ratio.
“Finance/Insurance” ends up with a high ratio due to the ratio of the job openings increasing by 1.2 and the fact of the number of job-seekers remaining the same.

The ratios of the Top 3 occupations are all over 5.0 and by industry, over 3.0. By occupation, “Electronics (Appliances/Semi-conductors)”, “Machinery (Automotive/Plants/Precision Equipment)”, “Medical/Pharmaceuticals/Bio/Materials/Food”, “Finance/Accounting”, “General Affairs/HR/Legal”, and “Marketing/PR” remains the high ratio. For 2016, “IT” also remains having a high ratio over 2.0. Also, “Manufacturing”, “Finance/Insurance”, and “Telecommunications” continues with their high ratio. We think the balance of supply and demand could be biased depending on the occupation and industry.
