In some cases, employers struggle to find suitable candidates
with the correct skill set to fill job positions. That can result in job positions remaining open far longer than first planned. A report from American job search engine Indeed
shows that the length of time a job remains unfilled varies widely between different countries.
The report claims that over a quarter of U.S. jobs are still open and unfilled 60 days after their creation. In Germany, two in 10 are still open two months after they were first advertised. It's a different story in many other countries where jobs are filled rapidly. In China
, only 1.4 percent of jobs remain open after 60 days on average whie in Russia it's 1.8 percent.
