If you are reading this, you are more than likely trapped in your house, self-isolating to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and fighting off marauders from plundering your toilet paper.

For many, this has become a very difficult time financially. A lot of people are losing their jobs, and with so many businesses putting a pause on their hiring, it is difficult to know where to look for work.

For the past three days, we have been monitoring LinkedIn, Indeed, and ZipRecruiter for changes in the number of postings for particular types of jobs and industries. Our goal in this is to determine which industries have actually been experiencing growth as a result of the pandemic.

This is sort of tricky business because our starting point has to be which industries we anticipate to be experiencing growth, which in turn blinds us to the industries that we hadn’t considered. As of the time of this posting, we have been considering three industries: Healthcare, Sanitation, and Logistics. As we continue this analysis, we will add more jobs and industries. If you happen to know of any industries or job types that should be included on this list, please let us know!

Three days is not a lot of time to determine exactly what is happening in the job market, so we will continue making these posts as things change over time. For the time being, this is what we have found.

Analysis

For each job type and industry we are considering, we are choosing to look at it in two ways:

  1. The number of new job postings that were made in a 24 hour period. This is important because it indicates how plentiful the job type is and whether or not there are many employers who are hiring for the job type.
  2. The percentage change in the number of job postings since the last 24 hour period. This is important because it gives us a relative picture of which jobs are growing, which ones are slowing down, and which ones are declining.

Additionally, we will be sharing the following information about each industry:

  1. Job types within the industry that seemed significant or interesting to me. There are a number of job types I am tracking, and I may swap them in and out of these charts as their significance seems to change.
  2. The average number of job postings within each industry over time.

Today, for basically all industries and job boards, the jobs I selected were selected because they are the ones I have the most data for. I should also note that we began tracking the Indeed and ZipRecruiter data one day after the LinkedIn data, so the data for those two job boards is a day behind.
