KABUL, Afghanistan — The German job website Kaisers Jobfinder said on Thursday that it has been unable to find any vacancies for German-trained engineers as the country’s job market tightening has become increasingly pronounced.
According to the website, it was not possible to find German-educated engineers for any engineering-related positions in the United States or Germany.
The news comes after the Federal Statistical Office reported on Tuesday that Germany’s unemployment rate in September stood at a record low of 6.1%.
The country has experienced a sharp fall in hiring in recent years, as the economy has recovered from a global recession and its manufacturing sector has recovered.
In September, Germany’s labor force dropped by 4.2 percent, with more than two-thirds of the job losses occurring in manufacturing, health care, education and social assistance.
Despite a slight rebound in the number of new job openings over the past year, the country still faces challenges in recruiting and retaining workers.
As the country has undergone a global economic recovery, job vacancies have fallen sharply in recent months.
This has caused a slowdown in hiring, which has made it difficult for companies to find qualified people for the rapidly expanding economy.
“The German economy remains fragile.
However, with the recovery now in full swing, the challenges facing the country are not new,” said Kaisers Director-General Klaus Eberhardt.
