Platforms that have job offers project an increase in temporary and fixed contractions at the end of the year. The scenario considers the high rate of the vaccinated population and the resumption of trade after the slowdown of the pandemic.
A survey carried out by LinkedIn shows that between October 2019 and the same month of 2021, there was a 25% increase in the number of hires for the most diverse activities.
According to the social network, there has already been a recovery in the offer of jobs in relation to the pre-pandemic period.
From June this year to date, the platform points out that vacancies in the network have quadrupled compared to the same period last year and tripled when compared to 2019.
Another survey, carried out by the website Empregos.com, with 190,000 companies registered, shows that in October 2021 the site offered 72,851 fixed vacancies, a monthly variation of 1.69% and an increase of 33.09% compared to October 2020.
At the time, there were 54,740 fixed spaces on the platform and the population was not yet being vaccinated against Covid-19.
RH Bullseye Executive Search, a company specialized in recruitment, highlights that every year (except 2020) there is an average increase of around 20% in the demand for companies that want to hire at the end and beginning of the year.
For the CEO of the company’s recruitment consultancy, Jorge Martins, candidates must be prepared for the moment.
“Different from what people think, the months between December and February are excellent for hiring. This is because many companies have already closed their budget and use this period to find candidates”, he said.
“A very common mistake is not sending a résumé or looking for vacancies waiting for the year to start after Carnival. This wait, as it assumes that the curriculum will not be evaluated, can make the professional miss many opportunities”, he said.
The executive also points out that several areas hire at this time of year, but the ones that are highlighted are the financial ones, “such as controllership, financial planning, accounting and tax planning; in addition to positions in technology areas, which are always growing; and legal areas that include lawyers, compliance officers, among others”, he said.
To CNN, Linkedin’s Talent Solutions Executive, Ana Claudia Plihal, highlighted the importance of keeping the curriculum and profile up to date. Another tip is that candidates should explore not only their certificates and diplomas, but also other experiences, such as volunteering or an exchange.
“Today, behavioral skills are as important as technical skills, which is why it is necessary to show companies their ability to communicate, adapt and solve problems”, says Ana Cláudia.
“It is also worth remembering that the skills that are useful for today may not be the same ones needed in a few years or months, therefore, it is essential that all professionals invest in training and courses to show this quest for continuous learning”, he commented.
LinkedIn and Microsoft, for example, are making nine learning routes available free of charge, consisting of 96 courses in Portuguese through December 2021. They range from “How to Become a Data Scientist” to “How to Overcome Challenges and Reinvent Yourself in tough times” and “Remote work: collaboration, focus and productivity”.
