Online Job Postings

Job postings are an indicator of demand and opportunities in an area. The information provided in this dashboard is based upon online job posting data collected and aggregated by Lightcast™. The dashboard shows trends in job postings for the state and workforce development areas, as well as top occupations and industries that advertise vacancies through online job postings. This data can assist individuals seeking job opportunities in current in-demand occupations. Data in this dashboard is updated monthly and shows online job posting data for the current and the last month.

Source: Lightcast™ collects information from over 35,000 web sources, including job boards, newspapers, and employer websites. While this analysis presents a broad picture of hiring activity and serves as a measure of labor demand, it does not capture openings that are filled from other networks.         
This report uses the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system based on a "hybrid" occupations structure, implemented by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) program for the 2019 data release. For more information on SOC system, visit https://www.bls.gov/oes/soc_2018.htm.

Disclaimer: Approximately 40% of postings do not include an industry classification. Data may not be representative of a full sample.
