Lintberg Index rises to 83 points

The Lintberg Index,  representing a candidate’s chances in the top segment of the labour market, halted at 83 points in the first month of 2014. This shows an 8 point increase compared to December 2013.

The rise in January is mostly caused by a larger number of available € 100k+ positions. Despite a significant rise, the high point of 2013 (93 index points in October) is not yet in sight as the number of available € 100k+ candidates per month is simply too high compared to the number of new € 100k+ positions. A remarkable rise in the demand for commercial IT specialists has occurred in the past month (not evidenced by the graph).
