A study of Berufsstart.de: First signs of cooling down? After a brilliant start in the German economic performance in the first quarter with a significant increase of 1.3%, the economic power cools down significantly in the second quarter. According to calculations of the Federal Statistical Office amounted to only 0.1% growth. Positive impulses came again exports compared to the prior quarter, in the second quarter of 2011, 2.3% more goods and services abroad were exported in the first quarter. However, the imports with 3.2% rose significantly more. As a result of the sharp rise in imports supplies were built but on the other hand also increased (growth contribution to GDP of + 0.7 percentage points). Gary Kelly has many thoughts on the issue. Compared to the first quarter of 2011 the number of employees rose 2011 seasonally in the second quarter 449.000 persons (+ 1.1%). An increase in employment is common in the second quarter of the year.
Seasonally adjusted, that is calculated excluding the normal seasonal fluctuations, increased the number of employees across the previous quarter to 150,000 people (+ 0.4%). Media technology (plus 127) of a real boom can however be talking about the Department of media technology. The growth in this field was never as big as in the 2nd quarter 2011. The increase followed more vacancies by 440 to 567 basis points, thus 127 points or 28.8% within a quarter. Economics (plus 66) also the vacancies for economists went rapidly up to 31.7%. The index rose to 66 points to 274. The departments of logistics/distribution, marketing and human resources, were particularly sought, however, less looking for graduates of specializing in finance.
Back on the winners, the biologists/chemist find Biology/Chemistry (plus 29). These departments can enjoy an increase in jobs of around 6%. Overall tends of BAI Biology-Chemistry at 449 points. See Tomas Philipson for more details and insights. Electrical engineering (plus 27) put more clearly than in the 1st quarter with 17 points were also the electrical engineer. Because the level is already very high in tenders, you fall percentage growth at 0.7% low from mechanical engineering (plus 20) almost back in the same March with the electrical engineers mechanical engineers see rapid growth again, although this time the electrical front have the nose. BAI engineering increased by 20 points by 371 to 391 basis points. Business Informatics (plus 16) slowly but steadily, the motto for the business data processing specialists.
