CareerJunction recently published the latest edition (December 2020) of The CareerJunction Index (CJI). The index details which jobs and skills are the most sought-after in South Africa.

More specifically, the CJI represents online labour dynamics by providing a detailed analysis of the relative ratio of supply and demand in the local online career market.

The CJI settled at 99 index points for December 2020, indicating stable conditions in the market. An index score below 100 means that there are fewer job opportunities for potential job seekers and more potential job seekers per job advert. A score above 100 means that there are more opportunities and vacancies for potential seekers.

A breakdown of the data indicates that during December hiring activity and career search activity experienced an expected drop due to the holiday season.
