Because of how we work when supporting our clients, we have a very unique “glimpse” into how over 5 000 Executive Search companies and almost 20 000 decision makers react (not what they declare in theory) – the majority of which being located in Europe.
Apart from that, we’ve been keeping an eye on the number of job ads on LinkedIn in 18 European countries since Week 13 of 2020 (mid-March) – extended to 36 and ultimately 38 countries in Europe since Week 15 and 17 respectively. In mid-September, we decided to extend our job market observations with a focus on LinkedIn to countries outside Europe to gain a more global insight. We currently monitor 80 countries all over the world and can provide data from almost every continent – this allows us to measure a KPI that gives quite a good feel of the overall trend on the global job market.
We 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.
We publish daily updates and weekly reports that you can follow here: www.LinkedIn.com/showcase/Market-Signals
