Tapping Into The Hidden Job Market

Indeed: Where The Jobs Are

From, the Google-like job search engine, launched a new product called Industry Trends. This nifty report shows the job postings by industry category and the change in postings in that category year-over-year.  It also shows other stats, like the number of clicks on those jobs, the top searches in each category, and the top regional areas for jobs in that category.

It’s a great tool and can show you which areas have been impacted less than others in the recent downturn.  It also gives you some insight in to the interest in the space vs. the number of available jobs.

For people working in rapidly declining industries, it will help them identify industries in better shape to which they can try to transition.

You can click on any industry to get more detail. For instance, in the IT industry, while job postings have decreased 43 percent, clicks on job postings have increased 84 percent to 9.8 million. The most clicks are coming from New York City (San Francisco is No. 7 in terms of clicks). Some of the most sought after jobs, as measured by the top keyword searches are project manager, business analyst, engineer, and graphic design.

Ed. Note: Click on any industry category and Indeed will display all jobs within that category.
