Report: Indeed Delivers 65% of Hires and 72% of Interviews from Job Sites

So who do job seekers and employers trust most to get it right? According to the latest Top Sources of Hire report from SilkRoad, the talent activation technology...

How have oil price fluctuations impacted the Canadian labour market?
As one of the world’s top ten oil producing countries, Canada is one of many markets across the globe directly affected by the dramatic fluctuations in oil prices over the past few years. In 2014, an oversupply of oil led prices to fall from around $100 to about half that in just six months and ultimately plunge below $30 for the first time in over a decade. Since showing signs of life in early 2016, oil has stabilized around $50. This has left an entire industry—and in some cases entire national...

Where New Grads Can Find a Roof and a Paycheck
By Jed Kolko, Indeed and Ralph McLaughlin, Trulia As the class of 2017 turns in its last papers and takes its finals, the real tests begin: Where can I find a job? Where can I afford to live? Is it possible to have it all? Sorry, graduates: the unfortunate truth is that good job markets go hand in hand with expensive housing. That said, we identified some unlikely sweet spots where job markets are good for new graduates and the housing is relatively affordable. For new graduates, one option is...

Indeed’s Domestic Migration Survey
Recent data from the Census Bureau show that Americans are moving less. In fact, the percentage of Americans that made a move in the last year has more or less steadily declined for over three decades, falling from just over 20% in 1985 to an all-time low of 11.2% in 2016.   For economists, a declining moving rate is concerning because it could be indicative of a US economy that is losing some flexibility and becoming less dynamic. For employers, a less mobile labor force means they may have...

What Do Employers Really Think About Coding Bootcamps?
Today, technological innovation impacts every industry, creating massive demand for employees with tech skills. But good candidates are notoriously hard to find, and universities just aren’t producing enough STEM grads. Enter coding bootcamps: an alternative education model that offers a new way to satisfy the tech talent shortage. Does the rapid rise of these fast-track, high-impact courses indicate that employers now view them as a serious alternative to a traditional four-year computer science...

What is the Best City for Job Seekers?
What’s the best city in the US for job seekers? It’s a difficult question to answer. After all, every job seeker is unique: For some, there’s no place like home, while for others the grass may always be greener elsewhere. That said, there are several key considerations most of us would agree are important, and today more data than ever is available to help us understand just how these factors combine to make a city stand out as a great place to live and work. So what is the best city for...

Three Reasons Why Older Workers are the Future of Work
Today marks the start of Older Americans Month. Older adults are often overlooked in analyses of the labor market; for instance, one of my own favorite measures of labor-market health, the prime-age employment-population ratio, looks at 25-54 year-olds only. But the aging of the population is reshaping the economy. On one hand, aging is contributing to the slowdown in both labor force and productivity growth, creating headwinds that make rosy economic projections implausible. At the same time,...

Canadian Millennials Less Interested in Jobs at Threat from Automation
One of the most widely discussed global labour market issues is the risk that automation poses to the labour force. Workers in many types of jobs may soon be replaced by machines: but will this process be purely destructive, or could it also create enough new jobs to offset losses? Of course, the threat posed by automation will not come to a head all at once, but rather will take years to unfold. Therefore, automation will carry a varying impact on the current generations, with the brunt of it...
