Now THIS is a good news story.
So none of us can deny the fact that the last 12 months or so have been hard for pretty much everyone, right? I hate to harp on about it, but the Pandemic really did bring the global economy to a halt. However, there’s light at the end of the tunnel (and vaccines also, I hope). Anyway, one way to tell that things are looking up is to take a glance at the jobs market. 2020 saw so many business implement a freeze on hiring, and many people were let go from their jobs. But now, as we dive head first into a new year, recruitment is on the rise, with loads of companies actively hiring. In fact, in the last 14 days alone, almost 2000 new jobs have been announced for the Irish market.
