The highest numbers of job offers appeared in the engineering and telecommunications sectors, where the number of job vacancies nearly doubled on an annual basis.

From a regional point of view, Trenčín and Žilina Regions came out on top with annual rises of 38 and 37 percent respectively. Košice Region was at the other end of the scale (with a rise of only 2 percent). According to Profesia head Ivana Molnárová, similar developments were also seen in the first half of 2010, but this year's figures depict the situation on the job market in a more realistic light because the basis for comparison from last year is not as low as it was in preceding years, which saw massive slumps.

Only two sectors recorded drops in the number of jobs offered: state administration (31 percent) and pharmacy (11 percent).
