Quarterly Industry Report: Jobs & Job Seekers – Q1 2020 [Report]

ihire Q1 2020 industry report

With a platform comprising more than 2.5 million jobs and 13 million job seekers across 56 industries, iHire is uniquely positioned to share first-hand insights into the U.S. job market.

New for 2020, iHire’s Quarterly Industry Report: Jobs & Job Seekers spotlights job industry trends from the previous three months as well as at the start of each quarter – which industries have the most openings? Who’s hiring? Which skillsets are most desired by employers? What percentage of job seekers are willing to relocate for a position?

While we will continue to report monthly on the U.S. labor market data from the BLS, we also plan to publish this quarterly data to provide a snapshot of the opportunities promoted through our most popular talent communities. Plus, we will use this information as a benchmark for deeper analysis in the months to come.

Among the job industry trends observed in our Q1 2020 report:

  • Top industries: iHireNursing boasted 309,063 active jobs as of Jan. 2, 2020, followed by iHireTechnology with 203,967 and iHireConstruction with 78,419.
  • Seasonal variances: iHireLogistics saw a whopping 105,741 job openings added in October 2019, signaling an uptick in seasonal hiring in preparation for the holidays. That number sharply declined to 57,477 in December 2019.
  • Tech is steady: iHireTechnology jobs remained fairly steady month-over-month, averaging 254,848 openings per month in Q4 of 2019.
