With the current employment and hiring landscape drastically altered due to the impacts of Covid-19, we know many employers and employees may be feeling lost. In times like this, the best thing to do is remain calm and adapt to the world around you. Companies will need to pivot their marketing, product, and sales in a few week’s time to and employees may need to hunt for new jobs on short notice.

Situations like these are not fair, but we must do our best to adapt and overcome. We wanted to provide a resource to help both companies and employees who need to pivot

Our data scientist is collecting information on a daily basis on the industries and specific job positions that are seeing massive growth due to Covid-19. This is done by tracking the number of job postings for various search queries on Indeed, Linkedin, and ZipRecruiter.

We encourage companies to use this information when targetting new industries for business. These companies are actively hiring and growing. Employees can use this data to search for employment, even if it is only temporary.

Our Data Scientist’s Reporting

Specific Healthcare Jobs

On Indeed, there were decreases in job posts across the board. No single job type that I am tracking experienced net growth in job postings.

On LinkedIn and ZipRecruiter, there was a different story. A few specific job types related to healthcare saw increases in job posts today.

LinkedIn

On LinkedIn, there was an increase in pharmacy related jobs. These increases come in on the heels of a recent sudden and dramatic decrease. Specifically, there was:

  • A 3.38% increase in total job posts related to the search term “pharmacy tech”.  The total number of job posts went from 8,135 to 8,410.
  • A 1.06% increase in total job posts related to the search term “pharmacy”. The total number of job posts went from 103,417 to 104,516. 

ZipRecruiter

On ZipRecruiter, there was:

  • A 11.82% increase in total job posts related to the search term “medical supplies”. The total number of job posts went from 224,481 to 251,013.
  • A 10.16% increase in total job posts related to the search term “medical records clerk”. The total number of job posts went from 25,142 to 27,697.
  • A 3.26% increase in total job posts related to the search term “pharmacy”. The total number of job posts went from 112,351 to 116,015.

Warehouse and Manufacturing Jobs

In my last summary, I noted that there was a very large increase in job posts related to warehouses and manufacturing. Today, there was actually a noticeable decline almost completely across the board in this category. For context, here are the same jobs I covered last time.

LinkedIn

On LinkedIn, there was:

  • A 13.93% decrease in job posts related to the search term “warehouse”. The total number of job posts went from 188,758 to 162,471.
  • A 14.81% decrease in job posts related to the search term “warehouse worker”. The total number of job posts went from 64,290 to 2,394.
  • A 10.83% decrease in job posts related to the search term “loader”. The total number of job posts went from 15,396 to 13,728.
  • A 5.37% increase in job posts related to the search term “fulfillment center”. The total number of job posts went from 8,080 to 8,514.
  • A 15.45% decrease in job posts related to the search term “warehouse associate”. The total number of job posts went from 50,244 to 42,479.

ZipRecruiter

On ZipRecruiter, there was:

  • A 3.82% decrease in job posts related to the search term “cdl driver”. The total number of job posts went from 994,481 to 956,483.
  • A 3.12% decrease in job posts related to the search term “warehouse”. The total number of job posts went from 240,257 to 232,755.

Indeed

On Indeed, there was:

  • A 5.89% decrease in job posts related to the search term “production coordinator”. The total number of job posts went from 13,337 to 12,552.
  • A 2.48% decrease in job posts related to the search term “receiver”. The total number of job posts went from 14,792 to 14,425.

As I had mentioned in my previous summary as well, this may be the result of an oscillation occurring in this industry. At this point I don’t really have enough data to say definitively that that is the case. As we continue gathering the data and looking at these patterns, we will begin to get more of a sense of what’s normal for these types of jobs.
