Early Findings

Job Demand
  • Entry level positions and hourly positions have become more difficult to fill in the US. A study by the Rockefeller Institute revealed that 43% of companies in the US consider sourcing entry-level talent a top problem.
  • On average, there are 4.8 jobseekers "for every entry-level job in Australia." The country is seeing an employment boom which means that there are more job seekers for entry-level positions than companies seeking these hires. In fact, entry-level jobs are completely disappearing from Australia's labor market.
  • India's unemployment rate is at 6.1% - the highest it has been in over four decades. There are more jobs for those without a degree than there are for those with a post graduate degree. This implies that more companies are employing talents for entry-level positions.
