The spike in COVID-19 cases is expected to lead to slower employment growth in the nation based on the drop in job postings recorded in Chmura’s Real Time Intelligence (RTI).
How has the labor market shifted since the appearance of COVID? Which occupations have been impacted? Which skillsets and certifications have seen increases or decreases in demand?
As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued in the United States, Chmura has been tracking volume changes in its RTI job postings data. We are pleased to announce that we are now making data for all states publicly available.
After a five-month dip, new online job ads surpassed pre-COVID levels in August. Though the lack of demand in higher-wage occupations has continued, this may be tied to fewer separations in recent months.
Hiring demand—exemplified by new online job ad volume—continued its recovery through July but remained lower than pre-COVID levels, especially in certain occupation groups and areas of the country.
