The Big Picture
Three charts regarding job postings from Jed Kolko, chief economist at Indeed.com, provide a picture of what’s going on. Get the full report here.
The trend in job postings was 18.2% lower than in 2019 as of September 18 — a fourth straight week of slight improvement.
Hospitality and tourism jobs have seen the biggest decline.
Since March, job postings fell more initially in travel and tourism destinations, large and small, but postings have picked up since May in hospitality metros like Las Vegas, Miami, and Orlando. Job postings have rebounded much more slowly in metros where more of the jobs can be done from home. Postings in high work-from-home metros are nearly 30% below last year’s trend.
