A Financial Controller, an Assistant Professor, a Lawyer, a Software Developer and an Auditor share their thoughts about the job opportunities the Cyprus market has to offer.
As a text:
Do you think that Cyprus has lots of job opportunities to offer ?
There are opportunities available but there is no equal competition or treatment. Lots of jobs are fulfilled in a way to please personal networks and acquaintances.
A high percentage of people compete for few job openings i.e. in the governmental or banking sectors which most people consider as the best job options.
Not all employers really know what they are looking for and most of the times they are not willing to pay the value of the skills and experience they are looking for.
Yes there are! In the case of software developers, companies are looking to recruit candidates from abroad in order to meet the high demand of the market.
I don’t think there are enough opportunities in the market. There is high competition and only a few openings available. Also there is a high percentage of people who are educated and often overqualified.
