More jobs than candidates

Demand increased 2.5 times

On average, candidates got 14 message requests from recruiters in June, up from 6-8 at the beginning of the year.

Demand is highly uneven: 5% of all candidates receive 40% message requests, with an average of 50 proposals each.

Job applications are falling

The average number of applications per job fell from 3.3 in January to 2.4 in June.

Most vacancies with the title Senior receive less than one response per job, the record is Senior DevOps with 0.1 (!) response to a job. Exception: vacancies for PM, BA and UX where demand still exceeds supply. Detailed statistics by category.
