Curious what the best job markets are on a country-by-country basis? The job market, like all other markets, is influenced by the overall state of the economy. Since the global economy is still in the process of recovering from the most recent financial crisis, rising unemployment has lead to a host of problems, including an augmented level of protests, below-average real output, and others.

This is especially true for recent college graduates, but adults with years of experience also might find it pretty hard to get a new job. Increased layoffs inherently lead to a higher level of competitiveness; in one of its most recent research studies, Gallup discovered that in 2012, 57% of adults were considering that it is not a good time for them to find a job in their cities, or respective countries.

In their research, Gallup showed that views have improved since 2009, when only 25% of respondents said that it was a good time to find a job.

Divided by continents, it is easy to notice that in Europe, which is still severely affected by the financial crisis, job pessimism is on the highest level, with 75% of the residents considering that 2012 was a bad time to get a job in their field. American Continents on the other had the lead the list in terms of optimism toward the job market. From the respondents involved in the poll, 54% of residents of the Americas said that last year was a good time for getting a job.
