The structural character of employment has a significant impact on the labour market competitiveness. The major changes that have occurred in society, as a result of labour intellectualisation, have also generated substantial changes in the structure of employment, both in the Republic of Moldova and worldwide. Consequently, many people with a low level professional training have become vulnerable in the labour market, and a large number has even lost their jobs. At the same time, in the Republic of Moldova, the employment structure by activity fields proves that it is not appropriate to the current development situation of the society. This has made the labour market from the Republic of Moldova vulnerable, compared to the European labour market.
