Crisis in EU, US leads jobseekers to Turkey

The debt crises in the European Union and the United States have made Turkey an attractive choice for jobseekers, and this is being reflected in foreign job applications, a Turkish Internet employment website has announced.

According to a press release by Secretcv.com on Tuesday, the number of foreigners seeking jobs through their database has recently reached 120,524, resulting in a 15 percent rise over 2010, as an outcome of strong economic performance on the part of Turkey.

The site, which has been active in Turkey since 2000, noted that Bulgarians topped the list of foreigners looking for jobs in Turkey at 28 percent, followed by people from Germany (11.8 percent), Azerbaijan (5.3 percent), the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC) (5.2 percent), France (3.9 percent) and the US (3.5 percent.)

The site also noted that foreigners tend to favor sales, foreign trade and marketing jobs. Looking in further detail at which job types foreigners prefer the most, sales applications were ranked greatest at 11 percent, followed by foreign trade (6.4 percent), marketing (6 percent), accounting (5.9 percent), management (5.6 percent) and education (5.4 percent).

Evaluating the figures, Secretcv.com General Manager Okan Tütüncü said: "Turkey has shown it has been an attractive center from many perspectives. ... While the world is struggling to overcome the debt crisis, Turkey has created many job opportunities for young people. We expect that this interest will be even greater in the coming months."
