Employment opportunities in Taiwan hit six-month high in May: job bank

The number of jobs registered with the online employment broker 104 Job Bank rose to 203,000 in early May - the highest level in six months - which indicates that the employment market is regaining momentum after hitting the bottom of the current cycle in December, the company said yesterday.
The job bank noted that the number of employment openings shrank to 160,000 last December - the lowest level for that year - but has been increasing since the start of this year.
The number of openings recorded in early May represents a growth of 13 percent from January, the company said.
Over the same period, however, there has been a 20 percent rise in the number of job seekers, it added.
The most significant jump in hiring demand has been in the financial sector and the photonics and optical industries, where the number of jobs up for grabs has soared by 101 percent and 95 percent, respectively, according to the job bank.
