There are almost no chances of finding a job: why do some Ukrainians not attract the attention of employers?

The State Employment Center explained in which professions it is difficult for Ukrainians to find work and explained why.

Computerization has affected almost all areas of society. It is no longer possible to imagine that digital technology is not used in industrial production, office work, commerce, education and medicine. Computers and automated systems not only make people’s work much easier, but also take over some of their functions. With the advent of computers, entire professions have disappeared, so now in Ukraine specialists whose fields of activity are managed by computers are experiencing great difficulties in finding work. Acting Director of the Employment Policy Implementation Department of the State Employment Center Elena Melnik said this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.

“All this is thanks to progress. For operators, managers or manual accountants who write on computers, for example, it is difficult. There are quite a lot of people with such professions,” he said.

According to him, it is now difficult for citizens who once specialized in the following professions to find work:

  • postman;
  • cleaner;
  • stacker-packer;
  • auxiliary worker;
  • teacher’s assistant;
  • clerk, economist;
  • lawyer;
  • executive;
  • civil service specialist.

How do Ukrainians change professions to find work?

Difficulties finding a job in Ukraine are affected not only by technological progress but also by war. For example, Prime Minister Denis Shmygal said on February 21, 2024 that Ukraine lost 3.5 million jobs due to the large-scale invasion of the Russian Armed Forces.

Meanwhile, employment support is also provided by the state to Ukrainians who lost their jobs during the war. We are talking about training vouchers in a new specialty, which have been used by almost two thousand citizens since the beginning of 2024.

On February 21, the Ministry of Reintegration said that the list of the most popular professions and specialties that Ukrainians receive with vouchers includes:

  • nursing;
  • chef;
  • pre-school education;
  • medicine;
  • tractor driver;
  • driver;
  • emergency medical technician;
  • installer driver.
