Thanks to government efforts to stabilize enterprises and ensure employment, China's job market gained strength in the second quarter, a new industry study finds.

More positions were available during the April-June period compared with the first quarter, while the number of job applicants decreased month by month, according to online recruiter zhaopin.com.

In terms of year-on-year change, the job market saw fewer posts and more job seekers.

The study also predicts that recruitment needs in the third quarter will be lower than those in the quarter, but will remain basically unchanged compared with a year before.

By field, the intermediary services industry rose to the top in terms of employment prospects; followed by entertainment, sports and leisure; education and training; insurance, professional services and consulting.

By region, the Yangtze River Delta area saw a relatively large increase in recruitment demand, while the employment market in first-tier cities is still relatively tight, according to the report .
