One of the new reports we will start publishing each month is the number of job openings in the 50 largest cities in the U.S. The report below includes the number of job openings on LinkUp’s job search engine on March 13, 2013 within a 25 mile radius around the 50 largest cities in the country. We will run the report again at the end of each month and compare the data to prior months. As a side note, the data from LinkUp is highly unique because we only index job openings from corporate websites (the index currently includes 1.4 million jobs from 25,000 company websites). As a result of this unique approach to jobs, our search engine and the related data sets do not include duplicate listings, expired jobs, or job board ‘pollution’ (scams, fraud, work-at-home garbage, etc.). The 458,467 jobs in the 50 largest cities represent 33% of the total number of job openings in LinkUp’s job search engine.
If you have particular reports you would be interested in seeing or have questions about our search engine or how we leverage our data to predict future job growth (see previous post as evidence of our model’s accuracy in forecasting job growth in the U.S.), please send an email to toby at LinkUp dot com.
