What fields are the jobs in Europe mostly related to?

Although the labor market in Europe has improved compared to the time of the Corona outbreak, there are still jobs that have difficult conditions for recruitment.

According to the statistics, the amount of job opportunities that have not yet been filled has been reduced and added to the number of people who are working.

But which countries need more labor?

Among the countries in the European Union, the Netherlands is one of those countries that has not yet been able to complete its jobs, in other words, it has unfilled job opportunities.

It is said that about 4.7% of employers are still looking to fill their job openings. In contrast to the Netherlands, Bulgaria and Romania are facing labor shortages.
Among these jobs, software developer and sales assistant have the most demand in job ads.

What is the reason for job vacancies in Europe?

The most important reason for the lack of job opportunities in Europe is the lack of skilled labor. According to the statistics published by Eurostat, the reason for more than 75% of European companies to have vacant job opportunities is the lack of professional labor recruitment, which has caused problems for European economic growth.

For this reason, Germany planned to pass a new law to solve this problem in order to attract skilled labor from non-European countries. To solve this problem, Denmark grants three-year work visas to foreign students who intend to work in this country.

However, it is interesting to note that more than 27 million Europeans of working age are still either unemployed or working in low-paid, low-skilled jobs.
