UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 3, 2016. The overall trend remains negative on Yekaterinburg labor market and has recently been estimated to drop down to -0.11, HeadHunter reports.

Job-seekers in Civil Service, Banking, Investment & Leasing, and Top Management find the situation the most uncomfortable; their mood rates dropped to -0.21, -0.18, and -0.17, respectively, whereas those in Medical Services, Sales, and IT appear best off.

According to HeadHunter, Yekaterinburg-based employees are not secure about their jobs, less secure, in fact, than in other parts of Russia. People employed in the Medical Services/Pharmaceutics and those at the beginning of their careers in the Fossil Development are the least worried groups.

Job applicants also say finding a place has grown much more difficult than one year ago. The situation is particularly challenging for journalists, lawyers, and top managers. Over a half of applicants are prepared to cut back on their salary expectations.
