Despite the holiday season, both employers and employees in Denmark are very busy with job search in general, which is reflected in the maritime sector too.
According to the owner of Jobindex, Denmark´s leading online jobboard, Kaare Danielsen, the number of advertised jobs is on an all-time high. He says “Every summer, I use to write about how to apply for jobs during the holiday season, when there are not that many jobs advertised. However, this year, there is more than 20.000 jobs advertised and there are no signs that the companies have closed down”.
This could be the result of the new EU rules for roaming and the fact that job search via mobile phones and tablets have now exceeded job search from PC´s.
At MARPRO Search & Selection, Managing Director Jakob le Fevre agree to the conclusion: “In previous years, we could close for a month during the summer holidays, but it is actually opposite now. Business owners want to set the team for the busy period starting in August and the holiday is for many people a welcomed break to evaluate the present employer and some reach the conclusion that they want to change job – and check job advertisements from the sun chair next to the pool. “
