Survey: Shanghai job confidence falls
White collar workers in Shanghai are less confident in their careers than they were in the first half of the year, recruitment portal zhaopin.com said today.
The job confidence index fell to 3 from 3.94 earlier in the year, the survey said.
That compared with 2.99 for the whole country, according to the survey which questioned 24,390 respondents, 1,539 of which are from Shanghai.
Shanghai ranks 18th in job confidence among the total 37 cities the survey covers.
Low salaries, uncertain outlook of employers, and limited promotional opportunities are chosen as the top three concerns.
An index measuring white-collar workers' sense of belonging was 3.27, ranking Shanghai at 32nd.
High living costs and difficulties buying a house are the top reasons for a weak sense of belonging.
Meanwhile, high quality medical services and abundant job opportunities are among the greatest attractions of Shanghai.
Nationwide, Dongguan, Hangzhou and Suzhou are cities with the strongest sense of belonging at work.
