Insights

  • Burning Glass made improvements to more efficiently identify expired job postings and this resulted in fewer "available jobs" before stabilizing at a new level as of January 23, 2022. Available job postings historically did not change. The time series experienced a one-time downward shift due to a better methodology.

  • For this reporting period, LightCast implemented additional data patches to improve accuracy and eliminate duplicate job postings. These patches also resulted in fewer “available jobs” due to better methodology.

  • Job Postings measured in this report refer to the employers who are actively advertising online, it is not a representation of Job Openings, which measures all positions that are open (not filled) on the last business day of the month.
  • There were approximately 96,000 Available Job Postings during the July 2022 monthly reporting period, a significant decrease from 119,600 postings when compared to June 2022. There were 33,516 New (first-time) Job Postings, a decrease of 15,584 first-time postings when compared to the previous month. New (first-time) Job Postings in July 2022 represented 35 percent of all Available Job Postings. Both the Dallas and Houston metros also saw a similar percentage decrease in their available job postings.
  • Approximately 15 percent or 13,973 of all Available Job Postings during the July 2022 reporting period fell under Management Occupations while 13,953 Available Job Postings fell under Computer and Mathematical Occupations, showing continued strong demand for experienced or senior talent and tech talent in our region.

  • Approximately 8,900 postings offered "signing bonuses", a decrease of 100 less postings when compared to the previous month.
  • Thirty-seven percent or 35,700 of Available Job Postings pay an annual median wage between $30,000 to $65,000. Of these, 58 percent or 20,800 will require a high school diploma as the entry-level education, and 13 percent or 4,700 will require a bachelor's degree.
