To understand how “job search-friendly” (aka competitive) a job market is, we analyze the changes in the number of LinkedIn job ads for 80 countries each week – this time we prepared a summary on the Nordics – Denmark, Finland, Norway & Sweden.

Applicant Tracking System
LinkedIn algorithm

About & details: Bewerben in Zeiten von Corona: Besonders schwierig oder eine Karrierechance?
Unternehmen rekrutieren seit Anfang der Pandemie zwischen 50% und 70% weniger über LinkedIn. Die Arbeitslosenrate steigt weiter an. Die Aussichten sind entsprechend trübe…
Wie bewerbe ich mich als Executive unter solchen Bedingungen? Was funktioniert – und was nicht? Ist eine Bewerbung in diesen Zeiten besonders schwierig oder kann ich das jetzige Marktumfeld auch als Karrierechance nutzen?
Sandra Bichl freut sich darauf, all diese Fragen und noch viele mehr mit Euch am 20. April um 20 Uhr zu besprechen. Als ehemalige Executive Search Consultant unterstützt Sandra seit über 10 Jahren erfahrene Manager und Führungskräfte in ganz Europa in ihrem Karrieremanagement und in der Jobsuche. Sie ist regelmäßig Gastrednerin bei renommierten Business Schools und Konferenzen.

LinkedIn job ads – market analysis (Week 15)

Full Week 15 Market Signals report showing winners: Visegrad, Czechia and Losers: Baltics, Croatia

Full Week 15 Market Signals report showing winners: Visegrad, Czechia and Losers: Baltics, Croatia

Market Signals – where do they come from?

We started by monitoring the number of LinkedIn job ads in 18 European countries in Week 13 of 2020 (mid-March) – and extended our observations to ultimately 38 countries in Europe since Week 15. This allows us to measure a KPI that gives quite a good feel of the overall trend on the global job market.

Career Angels analyze the collected figures and complement the quantitative data with detailed and personal statements & insights of CEOs, HR Directors, investors, board members, candidates and headhunters that we know personally. We observe if and what kind of trends there are to leverage them into better candidate management & more effective job search methods.

These are not usual times, so we decided to share our market signals by the end of each week. If the country / context is important, we’ll add them. Otherwise, we’ll keep it general for confidentiality.
