    Angry on/in market

    if we want to say that something is available to buy we can say:
    1. Wow, the new palmtop is on the market

    But I am a bit confused which preposition shall I use when I want to say sth about 'job market':
    2. I am studying English to increase my chances in/on the job market.
    3. What specialist are sought-after in/on the job market?

    Which shall I choose when I mean job market not selling market?

    Re: on/in market

    1 This doesn't sound natural to me- I would use on sale/available.
    2 I think you can use both.
