How can talent acquisition teams keep the human side of hiring alive while also embrace technology and data to make recruitment processes more efficient? Indeed Interactive, our...

“Everywhere Jobs” and the Red-Blue Divide: Does What You Do Decide Where You Live?
Your job might determine where you live, and where you live might decide what work you do. Many jobs and industries cluster in specific places. We all know that movies are in Los Angeles, finance is in New York, and oil drilling is wherever the oil is, but other industries have traditionally clustered as well— like carpet-making in northern Georgia, musical instruments in Elkhart, Indiana, and costume jewelry in Providence, Rhode Island. Jobs cluster in particular places for many reasons. Some...

International Job Search Now – A Look At the Economic Factors Behind Global Job Search
Today, migration to wealthy countries is on the rise. In fact, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) reported that 4.8 million people moved to its member countries in 2015 — 10% more than in 2014. This is controversial due to the impact of migration on both origin and host economies. For instance, countries that experience significant net emigration can in the long-run be exposed to the threat of brain-drain, a lack of economic dynamism and over-reliance on remittances...

Global Spotlight: What Jobs Are Trending Across the World?
Finding a new job is a priority for many job seekers at the start of the year. In fact, our research shows over half of US workers consider a career change during this period.

This surge in job seeker activity means that it’s a great time for all employers to post a job. And even as searches grew in January, it’s important to remember that any time of year...

How the Jobs That Immigrants Do Are Changing
Immigration was one of the most contentious issues in the 2016 presidential campaign. President-elect Trump pledged both to deport unauthorized immigrants and to restrict future immigration in order to “put American workers first.” And these promises resonated: support for Trump was stronger in areas with fewer immigrants but larger recent increases in the local immigrant population, and Trump did best among voters who said immigration was their most important issue. Economists generally...

In fact, the “obesity epidemic” fueled by diet and lifestyle has been raging for decades. And it’s getting worse:...
