Daijob Global Recruiting Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Human Holdings Co., Ltd. headed by Mr. Yuji Shinohara, has created a summary of the Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio of December 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
By looking into the global job-seeker ratio by occupation, “Medical/Pharmaceuticals/Bio/ Materials /Food” increases by 2.50 points, and with a ratio of 6.50. Following, “General Affairs/ HR/ Legal” increases by 0.62 points with a ratio of 5.17. Lastly, “Marketing/PR” increases by 1.63 points, and with a ratio of 4.74.
For December, “Electronics(Appliances/Semi-Conductors) with ratio of 4.71”, “Machinery（Automotive/Plants/Precision Equipment）with ratio of 4.00”, “Medical/Pharmaceuticals/Bio/Materials/Food with ratio of 6.50”, “Finance/Accounting with ratio of 4.70”, “General Affairs/HR/Legal increases by 5.17”, and “Marketing/PR with ratio of 4.74”. These 6 occupations, their ratios went over 4.00. We believe the cause of this result is due to the number of job-seekers for these occupations, (excluding General Affairs/HR/Legal) decreased compared to last month.
◆Global Job Openings to Job-Seekers Ratio by Industry
By looking into the global job-seeker ratio by industry, “Finance/Insurance” increases by 1.37 points and with a ratio of 3.15, and takes first place for this month. Next, “Manufacturing” increases by 0.16 point with ratio of 3.09 and “Agriculture/Mining” decreases by 2.33 points and with a ratio of 2.17.
For 2013 and 2014, we expected the hiring process to decrease as it was the final month of the year. However, the number of job openings increased by 1.05%. On the other hand, career changers/job seekers decreases, and overall the global job-seeker ratio is 1.51 with an increase of 0.17 points. For 2015, after February, the global job-seeker ratio has a calm tendency to increase.
