Active employers (appearance of new jobs) generally lags behind the activity of job seekers
Index takes into account 3 factors:
• ratio of total amount of resumes to job vacancies posted on the leading job websites (labour market demand and supply);
• ratio of employer activity (posting of vacancies) to job seeker activity (posting of resumes) within the given week (changes in demand/supply);
• total amount of job vacancies posted on the websites – research participants (overall demand for human resources).
During the reporting week on the Internet in general, the number of vacancies remained at the same level, and the number of active job seekers increased.
