Lintberg Index shows Severe drop in August


The Lintberg Index, displaying the opportunities for candidates in the top level of the labor market, was forced to take a step back in the month of August. A similar development occured in 2010, where a short-lived rise in July was followed by a severe drop in August.

The previous month saw a decrease of 40% in published 100k+ positions as compared to July. The number of applications remained mostly unchanged (-2%). A noticeable feat occured in the first few days of September, when the number of newly published positions already amounted to 30% of the total number of published positions in August.

September is a traditionally strong month for online recruitment. “If we can maintain the upward line of the first couple of days in September, we will definitely experience a strong month”, says Thomas Verbeeck of Lintberg.
