The number of people seeking employment, registered with the Israel Employment Service, dropped 0.2 percent in seasonally adjusted terms to 214,700 in October, from 215,100 in September, the IES said Monday. Without adjusting for the seasonal effects of the month, in which there were only 16 working days due to the Jewish Holidays, the IES had 210,200 job seekers registered in October, compared to 217,400 in the previous month and 217,200 in October 2005. The monthly report showed that the number of university-educated job seekers, excluding income guarantee claimants, grew a seasonally adjusted 1% in October from September, and the number of claimants rose 0.3%. The level of non-academic, non-claimant job seekers dropped 1.4%. Of the 18,800 newly registered job seekers in the month, 58%, or 10,892, had been fired or retrenched from their previous jobs; 13% were income guarantee claimants; and 14.4% were soldiers who had just completed their service.
