Real-time Labour Market Information on Skill Requirements: Setting up the EU System for Online Vacancy Analysis
01.01.2017 - 31.12.2020
Over the recent years, the number of vacancies posted online has grown rapidly and also job-seekers are increasingly relying on online job portals. The first steps towards harnessing the informative power of online vacancies were undertaken in the project ‘Real-time Labour Market Information on Skill Requirements’ where a prototype for online vacancy analysis was developed for five European countries. The current project up-scales the prototype to 28 EU Member States and was accompanied by the Landscaping Activity in the early stages (2017-2018). The Landscaping Activity was carried out in all EU Member States and delivered in-depth insights into the country-specific functioning of online job-portal markets in the following dimensions:
- Drivers influencing the use of online job-portals in recruitment and job-search;
- Structure of the online job-portal landscape;
- Factors influencing the format and content of OJVs;
- Trends expected in the use of online job-portals.
