Notes: Data prior to December 2014 was received from The Conference Board: Help Wanted Online (HWOL) Series. Beginning in November 2018, Burning Glass improved their process to detect when a job posting is no longer active. This removal of expired job postings caused an artificual reduction in postings.
Note: Emsi Burning Glass uses proprietary job spidering technology to collect job postings from over 45,000+ sources to track currently active job postings and then publishes the data to Labor Insight. Job posting totals are de-duplicated based on employer name, job title and location, among other criteria, within a given time frame. A job posting may not necessarily infer the availability of a job.
