Job market – supply & demand of candidates

A year ago we started monitoring the job market with a focus on LinkedIn – we track the number of job ads published there weekly in 38 European countries (and 80 globally!).

LinkedIn job ads – market analysis (Week 10)

Full Week 8 Market Signals report showing winners: Iberia, Spain and Losers: Western Europe, Belgium

Full Week 10 Market Signals report showing winners: Iberia, Spain and Losers: Western Europe, Belgium

Market Signals – where do they come from?

We started by monitoring the number of LinkedIn job ads in 18 European countries in Week 13 of 2020 (mid-March) – and extended our observations to ultimately 38 countries in Europe since Week 15. This allows us to measure a KPI that gives quite a good feel of the overall trend on the global job market.

Career Angels analyze the collected figures and complement the quantitative data with detailed and personal statements & insights of CEOs, HR Directors, investors, board members, candidates and headhunters that we know personally. We observe if and what kind of trends there are to leverage them into better candidate management & more effective job search methods.

These are not usual times, so we decided to share our market signals by the end of each week. If the country / context is important, we’ll add them. Otherwise, we’ll keep it general for confidentiality.

#OPENTOWORK on Linkedin for Execs: YES or NO?

If you don’t feel like reading the whole article and summary of our poll with the commentary: the short answer is NO. But it’s not a NO and that’s it. It’s a NO that has two * to it which we’ll describe at the end of this post, so feel free to skip ahead.

We created a poll on LinkedIn asking: “An experienced manager / executive uses the “green frame” on the profile picture. What do you think?”. And the answers they could choose from were:
• Great! Points for courage!
• It might help.
• Don’t know. Don’t really care.
• It’s not professional!
