job offers up in China

Job offers increased in Indonesia and China but fell in Vietnam and South Korea during the three-month quarter ending in March, when compared to the previous quarter, according to data from Japanese recruitment firm JAC Recruitment, published in Nikkei Asian Review. Indonesia’s job offers increased by 43% compared to the previous quarter, the growth was attributed to growing human resources needs related to infrastructure such as railroads and the power grid. Chinese job offers jumped 41% mainly due to the manufacturing sector. Meanwhile, job offers in Vietnam fell 19% mainly due to the US withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact. South Korea job offers declined 2% reportedly due to concerns over Chinese boycotts of South Korean products.
