Different Types of Job Vacancies

Job vacancies are everywhere, but how do you know which ones to look for? That’s the million dollar question when you are looking to work for yourself! Here are some tips that might help.

Job Vacancy Rate: The job vacancy rate is the number of people applying for a vacant position. A higher number of job seekers applying for a position means there is a higher potential for the job opening. Sometimes the term ‘vacancy’ can be overused, as there may be a large number of qualified candidates for any one open position. However, job vacancies can often be filled more quickly than traditional ‘open positions’, since these positions usually require a higher level of expertise or skill.

Vice-President, Director, President and Senior Director: A vacancy means an employee who is in a position that is above the normal level of pay and privileges on the job. Applying for this job may signify a candidate is seeking greater power and responsibility than their normal duties. The term “vice-chair” is very broad and covers anyone in charge of the company’s senior management. Applying for this level of leadership position means you have probably studied business, and understand management and leadership.

Technical Job Vacancy: A job vacancy means a vacant position in a technical field, such as in IT or in engineering. These fields tend to attract more applicants than other fields, as the general working knowledge of the employers is generally lower. Applications or resumes for technical jobs are more specific and detailed, as they have to be, since the employer needs to assess the suitability of applicants. Most technical job vacancies require advanced qualifications and training. An applicant may also need to demonstrate practical experience.

Junior Management Jobs Vacancy: This is the lowest level of the vacant position and the one most often filled by HR professionals. People applying for this job role must usually be at least in their twenties, although some people begin working at this level even earlier. This vacancy is also a job of great stability, which provides a guarantee for the person to be able to maintain a job for several years.

The above descriptions do not mean that all vacancies advertised on newspapers or on the internet are fake. On the contrary, many vacancies do exist and are being filled by successful HR professionals. Many organisations advertise their vacant positions on websites, as well as in their local papers. However, it is a good idea to apply for the vacant position in person. You can make a successful job inquiry email asking for more details.
