The job impacts of the pandemic are moving quickly and unevenly. In the coming weeks and months, the recovery will play out very differently across states, cities, industries, and professions. The pace of disruption and recovery is faster than what traditional sources of job market data are designed to support.

This site is a public resource. It is intended to provide the most up-to-date and precise labor market trends. We are combining the world's largest source of US hiring data with weekly government statistics. And, we're delivering insights using the leading workforce intelligence platform.

US hiring trends, compiled daily from millions of online job postings, show how hiring decisions within businesses are signalling their confidence and concerns about the future. Collectively, these signals are describing the shape and pace of the recovery to come.

US Job Listings

Re-Openings boosted demand for low-paying jobs in June, demand for other jobs remains generally weak

The pandemic’s initial impact to hiring – sharp, across-the-board cuts in late March – has given way to a slow, sustained increase in the number of new job listings each day.
State-level partial reopenings boosted job demand in June, especially for retail and hospitality jobs
Companies in general are ‘playing it safe’ with hiring – they have adjusted hiring to focus on those jobs where there is a clear fit with the ‘new normal’ (when it is apparent)
Meanwhile, weekly initial unemployment claims are declining from record levels, but are still much higher than pre-pandemic levels
Increased hiring demand is placing downward pressure on unemployment (a good thing) but it's not clear how quickly unemployment will fall given that many new jobs are competing with unemployment benefits programs

Jobs by Industry

Hiring demand across industries remains generally weak, with the exception of retail which has seen a surge in new job listings starting in June

All industries fell sharply as a group in mid-March and then began to diverge a couple weeks later.
Reopenings in early June drove retail hiring above pre-covid levels for the first time
Hospitality, initially the industry hit hardest, has shown notable improvement in hiring demand but remains weak
All other industries indicate a very tepid outlook and a reluctance to return to normal hiring levels

Jobs by State

Hiring demand across all regions are tracking consistently but hiring at the state level has substantial variation

Hiring demand in a growing minority of states is approaching pre-pandemic levels (about one third of states are within 20% of pre-pandemic hiring levels)
The improvement in hiring in the hospitality industry have had a notable positive impact in Nevada
State-level unemployment claims are trending upward, especially in the South
We expect to see further weakness in states where COVID-19 cases are spiking, such as Texas and Florida

Jobs by Family

The greatest divergence is seen across job families – the types of jobs companies are hiring

Hiring for clinical and allied-health healthcare jobs has fallen significantly since May –now down nearly 90 percent from pre-pandemic levels
IT remains the most impacted job family, consistently below -80% of March 1 levels; deeper analysis confirmed that a significant portion of large firms have stopped hiring new full time IT positions entirely
Hospitality positions have steadily increased over May and June and are nearly at pre-pandemic levels
