Employment agency Alljobs reported that in May there were 29 candidates for every vacancy as VP development in high-tech. Alljobs also noted that for a post for a graduate in computer science, there was only one candidate per job.
May's figures generally showed a rise in the average number of candidates for each vacant position in most sectors of the economy.
Alljobs found that there was an average 6.5 candidates for every vacation position as quality assurance manager, 5.9 candidates for every software analysis position, and 5.5 candidates for every vacancy as head of a development team.
The situation is more promising for software engineers, where there is an average of 0.5 candidates for every position, meaning there are more positions available than candidates to fill them.
Alljobs found that lawyers are also struggling to find jobs, with eight lawyers applying for every vacant position, and 68 candidates for every job as a legal advisor.
There were 36 candidates for every vacant position as a patent attorney.
