The LinkUp Blog The Industry's Best-Kept Secret
November Jobs Data By Industry From LinkUp.com
In addition to providing a snapshot of the labor market by state, we are also able to analyze the data by industry. Not every job fits easily into one of the categories, so the table below lists fewer jobs than the data by state, but the picture is just as grim. (LinkUp publishes job openings that are listed on over 11,000 corporate and employer web sites from around the country. As a result, the listings are from real companies, there are no duplicates because they are only pulled from a single source, and they are always current).
28 of the 36 industries showed declines in new job listings, and 32 of 36 categories showed declines in total job listings. Not surprisingly, Banking & Financial was particularly hard hit, as was Retail, Consulting, Supply Chain, and Insurance. Education appears to be the one bright spot in the economy, and while the numbers are small, Internet and Non-Profit also showed impressive strength. And so much for the doom and gloom stories about a lack of jobs and internships for recent graduates – new jobs in that category rose by 21% and total jobs rose by 15%.
