Trend in seeking employment
The number of job offers published in 2020 on the largest job portal in Slovakia, Profesia.sk, slightly exceeded 190,000, which is 28 percent less than a year before. This is the least amount of offers since 2004, when only about 160,000 job ads were published on the website.
Some employers who published their job offers on Profesia.sk in 2020 were creative when searching for new staff. They sought, for example, a cow chaser, a lizard tamer, a magician or a marketing guru.
