The number of people seeking jobs in the Haifa area increased by 11.4 percent in April, according to www.jobby.co.il, a job-seekers' website. And the website found that the high-tech field has been particularly hard hit, with 71% of all notices being for high-tech jobs, reports www.local.co.il. According to the report, the increase was due to increased outsourcing and contract work in the high-tech field, as well as to a reduction in the number of jobs overall. "The high-tech market has suffered a blow and a sweeping reduction has begun in the number of companies hiring staff," a Jobby spokesman said. "The market is in a state of uncertainty, which is leading companies to use outsourcing companies for projects and not to hire new workers, saving the costs of salaries and social benefits."
