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.

Current Hiring outlook is less confident compared to late April and early May

Throughout late March there were sharp, across-the-board cuts in hiring.
Starting in early April, overall hiring demand was showing a slow rebound,
   but hiring demand across industries, states, and job families start diverging significantly.
Overall, hiring demand is more tentative in the second half of May.
Meanwhile, weekly initial unemployment claims have plateaued, while continuing
   unemployment claims have continued climbing and have the potential to quickly surpass 30 million..

Jobs by Industry

Hiring Demand across most industries has turned down in late May,
with the exception of Hospitality.

All industries fell sharply as a group in mid-March and then began to diverge a couple weeks later.
During late May, signs of improvement across many industries gave way to modest declines in hiring demand.
Financial Services remains the most resilient industry.
Hospitality is still the most wounded industry but has shown notable improvement in hiring demand during May.

Jobs by State

West and Northeast States are still feeling the most impact, and decreased hiring appears driven by both disease infection rates and state-specific lock-down policies.

In the Northeast, states with the sharpest contractions in hiring demand remain those with
    the highest volumes of COVID-19 infections.
In the West and other regions, the decline in demand appears to be driven more by social policies.
Nevada stands out in the West region for having lost the most hiring demand since March,
   due to exposure to the Hospitality industry which has effectively cut all hiring.
The decline in hiring demand during late May is coming at the same time most states have
   begun relaxing social distancing restrictions.

Jobs by Family

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

IT hiring fell even further during late May – now down 88% compared to the March 1 benchmark.
    (Reminder note: IT jobs exist in all industries.)
Other job families are also experiencing alarming declines – healthcare, sales, human resources.
Operations/Manufacturing line jobs, along with Facilities Management jobs remain the most resilient,
   as these tend to be critical to ongoing operations.
