Guangzhou Academy of Social Sciences in south China's Guangdong Province recently issued its Blue Book: 2018 Guangzhou Economic Development Report, which shows the situation of jobseekers and local recruitment agencies.

The publication, co-organized by Social Sciences Academic Press (China), highlighted five main changes in the city's human resources market.

First, the number of people who signed up for registration and those who applied for jobs decreased, down by 11.54 and 23.48 percent, respectively.

Second, the requirement rate for those applying for entry registration has increased to 1.44 percent, up 0.2 percentage from the previous year.

Third, young and middle-aged employees make up the majority of the on-site staff.

Fourth, there are more educated and younger job seekers on the market.

Fifth, the stability of employment tends to be enhanced, and employee mobility has continued to decrease.

Meanwhile, the top five most popular industries among jobseekers were: manufacturing, rental and commercial services, wholesale and retail sales, hotels and catering services, and, residential and other services.

The proportion of jobseekers who have higher education increased. Some 44.49 percent have high school degrees; around 21.42 percent have college education, up 7.59 percent from 2016; and, 0.32 percent have master's degrees, up 0.15 percentage.

The number of female job applicants exceeded their male counterparts for the first time in 2017, according to the report.

Specifically, male jobseekers accounted for 49.89 percent of all applicants, whilst the females made up 50.11 percent, up 8.77 percent from the previous year.

There are two main reasons for this trend, said an expert. On the one hand, women have become more independent nowadays and are more likely to apply for jobs; on the other hand, most female job hunters prefer to find jobs through  public job market services since they lack other job-searching channels.
