Indeed Hiring Lab
Job search was essentially unchanged in September with no progress for the jobless since late May.
Job openings fell in August for the first time this year, suggesting that rising COVID case counts tempered employer demand for new hires.
US job postings on Indeed.com on October 8 were 46.1% above February 1, 2020, the pre-pandemic baseline. Employers really want to hire; HR job postings are rising and job postings advertising hiring incentives have doubled since last year.
Employment growth has yet to find its footing.
