Despite the slowdown in August, due to the ongoing summer holiday season, employers continue to actively seek employees for their companies. This is evidenced by an increase of 28% in August filed Job site Jobs4jobs.com compared with July. During the first ten days of August the proportion of ballot vacancies on our website in the U.S. amounted to 43.8%, India 23.4%, Philippines 8.6%, China 4.0%, UK 2.7%, Malaysia 2 1%, Canada 1.4%, Hong Kong, 1%, other countries 13%. These figures make it possible to believe that in these countries there is a shortage of skilled personnel, especially in information technology. Also, we can conclude that after global financial crisis the economy of these countries recover more quickly. With the advent of the financial crisis, demand for work abroad has increased dramatically, due to the fact that the domestic labor market of vacancies declined, wages also declined because of falling national currency against the dollar.
Today the demand for work abroad is still at a fairly high level and continues to steadily increase, partly contributes to this growth and jobs abroad, observed since late last year work abroad remains the main source of income for many of our countrymen, and not more than 5% independently employed legally. Only 15-20% of those who go abroad to work, would like to stay there forever. For many working abroad is only temporary earnings. Approximately 25% of the population of the former Soviet Union are ready to leave for work abroad. Political instability, low wages, the relatively low standard of living, high crime – an incomplete list of reasons motivating our compatriots to seek employment abroad.
