Job offers in Germany

According to the statistics of the last 8 years, the number of open jobs in Germany is constantly increasing. Between 2007 and 2015, it was the last year with the most open jobs, 568 743 of them, to be exact. The most job offers came from the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. State Saarland had the least of them.


Job offers in Austria

According to official data provided by the Austrian Statistics Office, there were 420 451 open jobs in Austria in the year 2015. Out of these, 416 070 could be filled, meaning that there were 29 251 jobs left open at the end of the year.


Job offers in Switzerland

Accordig to data by the Swiss Statistics Office, the canton of Zürich is the one with the most job possibilities. At the end of 2015, 2933 job offers were left open. Zürich is followed by Waadt, Argau, St. Gallen and Wallis. Because of the country’s size, the number of job offers is of course less than of those in Germany.


What means German CV?


A German curriculum vitae (English: /kəˈrɪkjʊləm ˈviːtaɪ, -ˈwiːtaɪ, -ˈvaɪtiː/), Latin for "course of life", often shortened as German CV or vita (genitive case, vitae), is a written overview of someone's life's work (academic formation, publications, qualifications, etc.) in German language. Vitae can be plural or possessive (genitive case in Latin). Vitae often aim to be a complete record of someone's career in German language, and can be extensive, but they can be (depending on country) used in the same way as a résumé, which is typically a brief 1–2 page summary of qualifications and work experience for the purposes of employment, and often only presents recent highlights.
