Leading vacancies 2011
Manufacturing is leading in offering vacancies in 2011
Last year the largest number of vacancies was recorded in manufacturing, as well as trade and wholesale, according to the State Employment Agency (SEA) information. Manufacturing developed a number of new jobs, while the trade sector saw rotation. The rapidly developing sector of information technology (IT) was popular as well. It is not more advantageous for the jobless to live on benefits than actually work, since they are calculated from the previous seniority and other factors. There are cases where a family chooses to apply for the guaranteed subsistence minimum (GIM) benefit, because it is convenient to receive it. For example, driving to work by car can cost one all the income in rural areas.
