Hiring demand has been rising steadily since 2021, and wages have increased by 31%.

Over 50% of US metros saw the number of listings increase by over 44% between Jan 2021 and Oct 2022.

It is apparent that tech, healthcare, and education are leading in the number of available jobs based on listings in the majority of metro markets.

Increases in advertised pay levels vary significantly across US markets, with the median increase at 24.9%. It is clear that healthcare is still remaining the strongest job family with a 71% increase in pay levels between January 2021 to October 2022.

All signs and data are pointing to a slowing market per data trends from Q2 2022 and Q3 2022.

The strongest metro market is Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, and the weakest is the Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton market.
