Market Signals – Special Report (Americas)

We’ve been keeping an eye on the number of job ads on LinkedIn in 18 European countries since Week 13 of 2020 – extended to 36, and ultimately 38 countries since Week 15 and 17 respectively. We analyze the collected figures and observe if and what kind of trends there are, to leverage them into better career management & more effective job search methods.

In mid-September we decided to extend our job market observations with a focus on LinkedIn to countries outside Europe to gain a more global insight. This is the second report on our findings and this time it's about North, Central & South America. In this report we analyzed Weeks 39 to 50 of 2020.

Our special reports are released “live” to our subscribers and then published for the public with a delay of 4-6 weeks. If you would like to become a subscriber and regularly receive our special reports, email us at Bichl.Sandra@CareerAngels.eu. Subject: Special Reports.

Market Signals – Special Report (Americas)

  1. 1. Market Signals by Career Angels The Americas COVID-19 impact on the job market of North, Central & South America
  2. 2. Market Signals The art of interpreting signals (precursors of trends) is – and always has been – important in navigating financial markets and economies. To manage career and/or job search processes wisely, it’s crucial to look at the signals of the job market, which are inseparably embedded in the VUCA landscape of today's world. We’ve been keeping an eye on the number of job ads on LinkedIn in 18 European countries since Week 13 of 2020 – extended to 36, and ultimately 38 countries since Week 15 and 17 respectively – this allows us to measure a KPI that gives quite a good feel of the overall trend on the job market. We analyze the collected figures and observe if and what kind of trends there are, to leverage them into better career management & more effective job search methods. In Week 39, we extended our observations even further, to gain an insight into the global job market. This is the second report on our new findings, and this time we’re taking a look at North, Central & South America. May this report serve you well!
