Large numbers of people from all over the world are currently looking for work. We receive emails on a regular basis in which people ask for our advice on how to develop their career, and how to further enrich it. What most people are unaware of is the fact that lots of companies around the world are looking to hire people in the remaining months of 2011. The Manpower Group has recently released a report looking at the employment outlook in 39 countries worldwide for the third quarter of 2011. 63,000 employers participated in the survey.
We will be taking a look at their results and summarise their findings by selecting the five countries with the best employment outlook for Q3 2011. This will help and guide you when choosing the right countries to look for work abroad.
The hiring intention of employers in Canada has been positive since the second quarter of 2010. 22 percent of Canadian employers have expressed their intention of hiring people from July 2011 to September 2011. This is an increase of 6 percent compared to the first two quarters of 2011. These figures look great, especially to people from Spain(-7 percent) and Italy(-4 percent).
Another country that expects its companies to hire significant number of people is Singapore. Hiring intentions are up 6 percent from 2010. According to the Manpower report, 29 percent of Singaporean employers express their intention to hire people in the third quarter of 2011. A 6 percent increase from Q1 2011, and 1 percent decrease from Q2.
While some European countries are struggling, such as Greece and Ireland, and others such as Austria and France are slowly starting to see positive signs,Turkey is doing very well in this department. 35 percent of employers say they expect to add people to their staff. Turkey is by far the country with the best employment outlook in Europe and the Middle East. The difference between Turkey and other countries is mainly caused by the construction sector, which shows a very optimistic outlook for Q3 2011.
Brazil has been doing quite well in 2011. Hiring intentions started at 40 percent in Q1, remained the same during Q2, and will drop slightly to 37 percent in Q3. Hiring intentions are quite good throughout the Americas, but Brazil really stands out.
Demand for workers in finance, insurance and real estate will remain high. 60 percent of employers in these sectors expected to hire people during Q3 2011.
The country with the best employment outlook is India. Almost half of all employers (47 percent) say they intend to hire people during Q3 2011. The trend has been very positive since 2008 and is expected to remain quite positive. Especially employers in wholesale and retail trade expect to be enlarging their workforce extensively.
