The 9th Adecco Infoempleo Report reveals that 38.5% of company job offers require a university profile

Most companies focus on university graduates to add to their staff. This is the conclusion of the 9th Infoempleo Report by Adecco and Spring Professional. More specifically, during the last year, 38.5% of job offers were aimed at this profile.

Business Management and Administration (BMA) stands out with the highest number of professional opportunities; 9% of job vacancies require this degree. It is followed, once again, by ICT Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Work Sciences, Labour Relations and Human Resources, Biomedicine and Nursing.

Meanwhile, the degrees with a greater percentage of graduates than jobs in the labour market and which barely rank among the 50 university degrees most sought after by companies, include Arts and Humanities, as well as some legal-social degrees, such as Geography and History, Political Sciences or Journalism.

However, there are degrees with an average employability rate. These include those in the science-health field, such as Medicine or Pharmacy, and some engineering fields, such as Chemistry, Naval and Oceanic or Civil engineering.

Employment by Autonomous Community

According to the Autonomous Communities, most job offers are placed in the Autonomous Community of Madrid (27.1%), and in Catalonia and the Basque Country, which contribute 19.4% and 12.3% to the total employment offer in Spain, respectively. These three territories account for more than half of the applications. Below 10%, we have Andalusia, Castilla y León, Comunidad Valenciana, La Rioja, and Extremadura.

Of all the job offers aimed at graduates, 11.7% come from the education and training sector; therefore, it is this sector that requires the highest proportion of graduates. In addition, this sector has experienced the highest growth over the past year, rising from 8.2% to 11.7%.
