The number of job vacancies advertised for career-starters began increasing late last year in Hungary after falling throughout the rest of 2020 and the improving trend continued in the first months of 2021, jobs website profession.hu said earlier this week.
In March 2020, the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in Hungary caused a decline in the number and share of vacancies for career-starters across the labor market.
Companies trying to weather the crisis by cutting or freezing headcount also decided to first lay off those on contracts for a specified period, temp workers, interns, and student workers.
The number of applications per vacancy grew steadily to levels unseen for years from March in many sectors due to the crisis, before gradually falling from the fall.
Applications for positions for career-starters or interns picked up again in January, rising 15% on average from the same month a year earlier.
