Jobs in Germany
Hiring activity in Germany is relatively low, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.
The survey of 1,005 German employers found the first quarter Net Employment Outlook has fallen from +7% in 2011 to +6% in 2012. This means that for every 100 employers, six more employers are planning to hire workers rather than lose them. This employment outlook indicates that there should be some opportunities available to job hunters.
It should be noted that German hiring levels are generally slightly lower in the first quarter compared with the rest of the year – once seasonally adjusted, the first quarter outlook stands at +10%.
