In this edition of our quarterly report, we observed the labor market edging toward recovery from the devastating hits doled out by the pandemic. Though some progress is evident, there is certainly more progress that needs to be made:
- Total active job listings were up more than 15% in Q3 2020 (after a drop of 25% in Q2).
- The biggest job market diversification score increases were seen in:
- Providence, RI
- Modesto, CA
- Akron, OH (a substantial comeback for this area, after seeing such negative change in Q2).
- A significant increase in created job listings flattened the extreme job demand volatility we saw in Q2.
