Help Wanted? How Real-time, Online Job Ads Data Reveals the Impact of COVID-19 on Labor Markets

JUNE 02, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the US labor market to go through a sudden and wrenching change. The economic crisis is moving so fast that it outpaces most of the traditional tools for understanding the job market. 

In this two-part webcast series produced in partnership with Burning Glass Technologies, our experts will focus on the use of online job ads—which offer much more timely and granular information than official government statistics—and other data to provide insights on current and future labor market trends.

Join our first in this series to discover how the pandemic has affected the US labor market and receive answers to the following questions:

  • Which industries, occupations, and locations are most affected by the COVID-19 crisis?
  • Where are we seeing an increase in hiring as the economy reopens?
  • What occupations and industries will lead the recovery? 

Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in the state of the US economy, as well as HR leaders interested in learning about labor markets.
