Improving job outlook for Singapore

The job outlook certainly looks to be improving in Singapore. The latest indication comes from the number of job advertisements in newspapers.

According to The Business Times article Job ads jump 50% in April led by services, data on job advertisement volume -- as compiled by Singapore Press Holdings -- grew in April across all sectors. Total volume was up 50 percent, the strongest growth in more than two years. It was the fifth consecutive month of overall positive growth in recruitment ads. Advertisements for service jobs jumped 58 percent year on year.

The report is consistent with my article Jobs in Singapore grow with economy, for now posted just two days ago, in which I pointed out that jobs are being created with the improving economy, but the trend is toward more service rather than manufacturing jobs.
