※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.＞

In addition, the occupation type 'Medical/Pharmaceuticals/Bio/Materials/Food' reached the TOP 3 for the first time roughly six months.

This resulted in a ratio above 2.00, and a reappearance in the TOP 3 after a 6 month absence.
