Employers say they think there is a good supply or a balance of job-seekers without occupational experience for eight out of ten educational groups. Concerning supply of job-seekers with occupational experience, the assessment is mainly the opposite. Employers report that there is still a shortage of those with occupational experience for most of the educational groups.
Increased need for engineers in structural engineering
According to employers, there is a good or balanced supply of newly graduated job-seekers within the area of technology. A shortage is reported for those with occupational experience. Employers estimate that the number of employed engineering graduates will increase over the next three years, especially for those trained in structural engineering. There will also be an increased need within the next three years for applicants with upper secondary education in measurement and control technology, as well as operations, maintenance and HVAC.
Good supply of newly graduated human resources specialists and behaviourists
There is a good supply of newly graduated students in the field of social sciences, especially for human resources specialists and behaviourists. There is somewhat of a shortage of experienced economists and social work professionals while the supply of experienced social scientists and human resources specialists/behaviourists is more balanced. Employers estimate that the number of employed economists, lawyers and computer programmers/systems analysts will increase over the next three years.
Continued shortage of experienced doctors
There is a continued shortage in the healthcare field for experienced doctors, dentists and specialised nurses. There is a good or balanced supply of newly graduated students on the whole. However, there is somewhat of a shortage of newly graduated specialised nurses within for example psychiatry and geriatrics. At the same time, employers estimate that the number of employed specialised nurses will increase during the next three years.
Shortage of leisure time childcare workers
Within the area of education there is a shortage of leisure time childcare workers and compulsory school teachers in mathematics/natural sciences (upper levels), including newly graduated students. Over the next three years, employees only see an increased need for preschool teachers.
