Quite a lot, in the rankings also increased open positions for those in food and HoReCa, IT and financial and accounting.

The North-West Region of the country is the second most attractive area for managers, from the income point of view, with a salary average of 6,281 lei net.
"Cluj-Napoca is the city that raises this region very much, due to the explosion of business in the recent years and the fact that being a university center has a huge nursery of candidates.
