Recruitment Market Trend Analysis:

With the recovery of the economy and the recovery of the market and the improvement of market activity, the flow of talent will accelerate. Employees are more likely to try to change jobs or seek new career opportunities, and companies are likely to be more active in finding the right talent and meet business needs. Despite the overall growth trend in the recruitment market, there is still an inequity in the supply and demand of talent in certain industries or job areas.

With the adjustment of economic structure and development of the industry, the demand for professional talents and general talents in different industries may also be different. Some industries may be more focused on expertise and industry experience, while others are more focused on generic cross-border capabilities and leadership. In the face of rapidly changing market demand and technological progress, enterprises are also paying more attention to talent training and development.

Compared with last year, the top three fields of IT/Internet/games, real estate/construction, energy/chemical/environmental protection, this year, the field of artificial intelligence, big data and internet of things and other technologies continue to expand the scope of application, digital and technology industries will continue to become a popular choice for job seekers. In addition, the health technology sector is also attracting attention, especially in the context of the global health crisis, which future increases the demand for healthcare innovations and digital solutions. The emphasis on sustainability and social responsibility will also influence the choice of job seekers to focus on the new energy industry, making it one of the hottest fields in the market.
