Help Wanted OnLine™ Job Demand

Help Wanted OnLine™ from The Conference Board is a measure of real-time labor demand captured through online job ads. The Conference Board compiles online job ads from over 1,200 job boards and publishes the data in an online application that covers national, state, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and county levels, detailed by occupation, industry and employer.

Since the online ads are a direct indication of hiring intent by employers, the ads serve as a measure of labor demand. Reports of hiring demand by area, industry, occupation and employer are a valuable tool for identifying employment opportunities and helping with the reemployment of Florida’s out-of-work citizens. The Department of Economic Opportunity, Bureau of Labor Market Statistics compiles and publishes the Florida Online Job and Demand Tool from Help Wanted Online data that show hiring demand at the state level and by local workforce development areas.
