27 of 36 Industries Saw Increase In Total Job Listings On LinkUp In November
Continuing last Friday’s post about November’s stunningly positive jobs report (in which new job postings on LinkUp rose by 9% from October and 35 states reported an increase in the total number of jobs listed on corporate websites), there is also positive news on an industry by industry basis. In November, 22 of 36 industries showed an increase from October in new job listings on LinkUp, while 27 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 November jobs report was based on a comparison between October and November job listings from 16,549 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.
Industries with the largest increases in new job listings included Restaurant & Food Service, Supply Chain & logistics, and General Management. The largest declines took place in Customer Service and Retail.
