Lintberg Index April


The Lintberg Index, representing the chances for candidates in the top segment of the labor market, has taken a step back in April. After three consecutively strong months the index dropped from 97 to 74, a decrease of 23 points. A small decline in the number of newly available 100k+ positions was already noticeable in the second half of March, this trend continued into April. The last week of the month showed signs of recovery, with an increase in published positions.

The number of new positions in April proved to be 18% less. Furthermore, in April around 10% more applications were processed as compared to the month before. This increase also contributes to the lower index.
