Monster Employment Index: Schweden
September 2009 Index Highlights:
- The Monster Employment Index Sweden jumped four points (four percent) in September, the first monthly increase since February 2009.
- The media/marketing, sales and production sectors noted the sharpest gains in online job availability.
- Online job demand increased across all Swedish regions.
September marked the first increase in Swedish online job offerings since February, with opportunities climbing four percent. Areas such as media and sales reported a surge in offerings which helped fuel the overall uptick. However, the annual rate of decline deteriorated in September; as opportunities were down 39 percent compared to September 2008, suggesting underlying employer demand for workers remains muted.
