New York, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
Over the past 90 days, post-secondary schools placed more than 30,000 new online job ads, according to WANTED Analytics™ (http://www.wantedanalytics.com), the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. Educational facilities have increased their hiring demand by 13% compared to the same time period in 2010. Given high rates of unemployment in the US, a rapid increase in demand for post-secondary teachers could indicate that many workers are going back to school to learn new skills. Alternatively, a modest increase in demand for teachers may indicate that many are not yet choosing to return to school for further education.
More than 6,400 institutions across the US advertised for open teaching positions, with the highest demand in New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Boston, and Los Angeles. Although New York saw the greatest volume of Post-Secondary Teacher job ads, the hiring demand in Los Angeles experienced the greatest year-over-year increase at more than 17%.
The most common post-secondary teaching roles advertised in this 90-day period were Vocational Education Teachers, Health Specialties Teachers, Business Teachers, Nursing Instructors, and Biological Science Teachers. Vocational Education Teachers were the most frequently advertised teaching position, with more than 7,600 new jobs advertised online, representing 8% growth year-over-year.
Of the five previously mentioned metropolitan locations with high demand, Washington, DC is likely to see the most difficult recruiting conditions. According to the Hiring Scale™, the talent pool in Washington, DC consists of approximately 17 potential candidates in the workforce for each available job ad, falling below the national average. Recruiters at educational facilities in this area are likely to see the most difficulties when searching for Vocational Education Teachers, with just 2 local candidates per job. Since sourcing candidates will be difficult in this area, Recruiters should look to alternative locations where the talent supply is larger and hiring demand remains low. Sourcing candidates from areas such as Scranton and Philadelphia, PA or New York, NY is likely to reduce the time-to-fill for open positions.
The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.
