East-west divide in job market

There are still more jobs available for university-qualified and other skilled workers in the west of the country than in the east, according to labour offices.

"In the last couple of months most positions available have been in connection with seasonal work," said Katarína Blacovská from the Rimavská Sobota labour office in southeast Slovakia, describing the situation there, where unemployment is approximately twice the national average, at 30 percent.

"We are looking for agricultural workers, builders, wait staff, shop assistants, and similar. There are few jobs for university graduates - only places available for language teachers," she added.

Elsewhere in the country employers are mainly looking for engineers, IT, logistics, and marketing specialists, said Miroslav Poliak from personnel recruitment specialists Amrop Jenewein Group.
