More workers hoping to work in China, job bank survey says

More workers in Taiwan are thinking about working in China in light of the unfavorable change in Taiwan's employment market, according to the results of a survey released Wednesday by an online employment service provider.
The survey conducted by 104 Job Bank shows that the number of workers expressing an interest in working in China this month is 24.8 percent higher than last December, while the number of China-based job openings also increased 23.8 percent year-on-year.
In particular, there has been a 27-percent rise in the number of executive and managerial personnel interested in working in China, which reflects an increasingly obvious trend in which Taiwan executive and managerial personnel are shifting the focus of their career development to China.
The survey found that 54 percent of workers are planning to change jobs after the Chinese Lunar New Year, but the respondents generally do not think highly of their own abilities.
Asked to rate their own work competitiveness, the respondents gave an average grade of 68.2 on a 100-point scale, with male workers averaging 69.4 and female workers averaging 66.7.
While men think they enjoy an advantage in terms of their strong execution ability and integrity, women think they have an edge in terms of their flexibility and ability to resist stress and manage their emotions.
However, the respondents expressed a lack of confidence in themselves mainly because they are concerned that the change in Taiwan's employment environment could threaten their jobs, according to the survey.
