Market Signals
by Career Angels
1 year into the COVID-19 pandemic
Since March 2020: we have been observing the situation across the EU
Since September 2020: monitoring a total of 80 countries on all continents
With the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Career Angels wanted to
understand how it actually affected the job market. We started to observe
and analyze the changes that it brought.
(unemployment and the number of job ads published on LinkedIn)
Tracking the demand for candidates, that is – if and how much – companies
are hiring, gives quite a good feel of the overall trend on the global job
market.

The changes in the number of LinkedIn job ads in all areas that we observe (Europe, Africa,
the Americas and the top 20 global economies) usually showed similar tendencies, but with
different timing. However, there were moments when the whole world synchronized:
in 2020 between November 16 & 23 and in 2021 since the beginning of March.
