Unemployment figures – the end of 2014
In current global questionable economic situation and political issues involved the unemployment figures in Europe give a real hope for the potential business recovery and general life quality enhancement in European countries. As you can see from the picture below (to enlarge, please, click on it), there is a trend of slow yet evident reducing unemployed rates in the Euro zone.
However, two basic problems are still to be solved. These are long-term and youth unemployment. There is also an overlap in these two, because the longer you are unemployed the less attractive you are as a potential worker. Fortunately, technical occupations such as engineers, programmers and researchers in exact sciences are surely out of risk. At the same time, these specialists can struggle to find a job matching their particular interests in their home countries. We notice, though, that many of technicians are becoming more mobile and open to relocation abroad specifically for their professional growth.
Therefore, the best advice for companies is to reconsider their organisation culture, making it more expat-friendly and recruit more broadly. Looking ahead over the national and local language boarders to seize the brightest talents can not only strengthen the business itself, but to boost the European economy in general.
For job seekers we would recommend to keep learning, developing new competences even if you are currently unemployed. You can do this via various online courses, freelance and even voluntary work. Go social and visit job fairs wherever you live, keep an eye on European job boards such as Qreer.com. Same rules apply to those who are employed, but longing for better opportunities. Keep self-developing and be open to what 2015 may bring about in your life.
