The “talent attractiveness report 2020” released by Maimai, a China-based career and social-networking platform, indicated that the three industries with the highest overall job satisfaction are education and scientific research, consumer durables, health care and medicine.

The industries with the least satisfying jobs are: trade, wholesale, retail, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry, fishing, IT and Internet.

Although the sense of happiness is low for practitioners in the IT Internet industry, there is still a large inflow of talent into the industry, due to high salary availability.

There has also been a significant outflow of talent from industries such as life services, manufacturing and finance, with an urgent need for highly talented professionals on algorithm and cloud computing.

The development of audio, video and leisure industry has boosted the demand for professionals on audio, video and graphic development; the rise of live-streaming and online education in 2020 has also made live streamers and tutors more scared than before.
