The Connecticut Department of Labor (CT DOL) – Office of Research just released a brand-new monthly report entitled, Help Wanted Online, which is part of the Conference Board Help Wanted Online Data Series.
This comprehensive report looks at data from over 16,000 internet job boards, corporate job boards, and niche job boards in order to determine what Connecticut companies are posting jobs online for the first time and also reposting jobs. According to the CT DOL – Office of Research, the intended use of the report is to better measure labor market demands in real-time.
However, from a jobseeker perspective, there’s some high-level information to know that can only help in one’s job search. For instance, Connecticut Employers with the Most Job Advertisements shows the breakdown of company name, rank and volume in the Top 20. United Technologies, Robert Half International, UnitedHealth Group, Travelers Insurance and Yale University are high up on the list.
Another sub-report entitled, Occupations, shows occupation breakdown by name and amount of available / posted jobs in the Top 20 as well. For instance, Heavy and Tractor-Trailer Truck Drivers, Registered Nurses, Computer Systems Analysts, Retail Salespersons and Accountants are high up on the list.
Another sub-report that’s insightful includes statistical information for six Connecticut DMAs: Danbury, Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Hartford, New Haven, Norwich-New London and Waterbury.
