Monthly LinkUp Jobs Report: Most Industries Added Jobs In October

Continuing last Monday’s post about the October’s jobs report (in which new job postings on LinkUp rose by 4% from September), there is also positive news on an industry by industry basis. In October, 23 of 36 industries showed an increase from September in new job listings on LinkUp, while 21 showed an increase in total job listings.

LinkUp, the fastest growing job search engine on the web according to recent ComScore data, only indexes job listings that are found on company websites. The October jobs report was based on a comparison between September and October job listings from 16,967 corporate websites around the U.S. As a result of this unique data source, LinkUp’s job listing data includes no duplicate job listings, no classifieds from recruiters or headhunters, and no phishing or scam ads. Even more importantly, the jobs data is based on actual job openings that companies list on their own company website rather than the openings that companies are advertising for on other job boards or in newspapers.
