Job posting data can help you track company growth and expansion. You can also see the location where a certain company intends to expand.

Job data is extremely valuable for investors because they can identify companies that are ready to take the next step and grow into a potentially groundbreaking business.

Job posting analytics vs labor market information

Job posting analytics (JPA)

Job posting analytics helps to measure the demand for talented candidates from a broader range of regions.

JPA report shows:

  • The number of job postings
  • What jobs do people seek
  • Businesses scouting for talent
  • The volume of the demand
  • What job titles do companies utilize
  • The education preferred or needed for certain listings
  • The skills a business requires

You can use those reports for comparison reasons or investment purposes. You can see how ambitious some companies are and if they are worth investing in.

Labor market information (LMI)

Labor market reports refer to data gathered and announced by public sources. Labor market analytics helps to evaluate the present and historical conditions of the labor market.

LMI encompasses almost all employee activity in the country. However, it is lacking in detail and freshness.

For instance, Indeed is a hiring lab website that delivers employment overviews and helps drive the global market discourse. It uses proprietary data and publicly available sources to conduct research primarily on global labor market topics.

In comparison

Job postings, on the other hand, are online advertisements that are published by companies looking for new candidates. It shows more detail that LMI is lacking, such as employers' demands for specific skills and more information in the job title.

Furthermore, job postings can be accessed in real-time, whereas labor statistics often become outdated.

How is job posting data used?

Job posting data for investors

Investors can gain a myriad of useful insights from job posting data.

First of all, it helps you see the expansion and growth of a company. If a company is publishing new online job postings, it means they are becoming more successful and are looking for opportunities to expand. By analyzing the job listing, you can see what position they are trying to fill, what skills they require, and predict what services they will be able to provide once they finish the hiring process.

Secondly, you can gather information on the company's ambitions. If they are trying to hire people with a bachelor's degree, that is a good sign. If they are looking for someone with a master's, that is even better. Employers with well-defined ambitions are always a good sign. It means they are confident enough that people with education will want to work with them.

Finally, you are guaranteed to avoid duplicate job postings. Duplicate job postings interfere with the overall research process and costs valuable time. We, at Coresignal, make sure that the job posting data you receive is free of duplicates and ready to use.
