MIT Israel's monthly survey of help-wanted advertisements in the Hebrew press showed that its Manpower Index rose 5.2% to 117.9 in January compared with December, however, the index dropped some 7.6% if compared to January last year, when it stood at 127.5. Demand for managers this January jumped 12.8% but was 26.7% lower than in June 2006 before the war in Lebanon.
