No Increase In New Job Listings For Any Industry In April
In contrast to yesterday’s mixed signals on a state by state basis, there was no mistaking the message from LinkUp’s April jobs report on an industry by industry basis: it was all grim. Not a single industry showed an increase in new job listings in April, and the average decline in new job listings for all industries was 26%.
LinkUp, one of the leading job search engines in the country, indexes job listings found on only on company web sites (16,874 company sites in April). Unlike other job search engines such as Indeed or Simplyhired, LinkUp does not aggregate jobs from other job boards but rather aggregates and publishes only jobs pulled directly from company web sites themselves. As a result, job listings found on LinkUp are always current, often unadvertised, and never fake.
In terms of the worst performing industrie, Consulting & Freelance, Advertising & PR, and Government showed the biggest percentage declines, while Health & medical, Sales, and Technology showed the largest decrease in new job listings.
