General Trends

GoinGlobal’s expert career researchers regularly update Employment and Industry Trends with detailed descriptions of the current economic and employment situation. This starts with a general overview and summary.

Below is a brief excerpt from this section:

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has described the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic as “the worst global crisis since World War II.” This unprecedented global public health emergency is impacting the employment markets of most countries around the world and Spain, as one of the most affected nations, is suffering a severe economic and labor recession.

After Spain locked down in March, the country’s job market registered its worst levels on record. In less than a month, more than 830,000 jobs were lost and unemployment levels skyrocketed. Experts confirm that more than 4.3 million Spanish workers are affected by the ongoing Coronavirus crisis and that its subsequent effects will likely have a negative impact on the country’s businesses and financial stability for months to come.

In this difficult context, many Spanish employees have been able to maintain their jobs thanks to smart-working or teleworking modalities. The number of remote jobs is expected to grow in the future, as well as jobs in health care, ICT, engineering and online business activities.  There are still areas of job stability or growth in some sectors.

This is just a brief sample of the extensive information in the GoinGlobal Spain Career Guide, which is carefully researched and regularly updated by career experts.
