Online job postings for software development and finance roles have experienced significant declines since the beginning of last year, according to data from Indeed. This suggests a potential slowdown in the US labor market, with total job postings on Indeed falling over 15% compared to the start of 2023. New job postings, those that have been on the platform for 7 days or less, are down 13.5% year-over-year. LinkedIn has also seen a decrease in hiring activity between late 2022 and late 2023. Traditional white-collar office jobs, particularly software development and banking/finance roles, have seen the most significant decrease in online recruiting efforts. As job competition increases, employers are becoming less willing to offer remote work as a perk. Remote job postings on LinkedIn have dropped by over 9% since January 2022, despite high interest in these roles. The decline in job openings aligns with federal government data, which shows a decline in US job openings in November 2023. While the national unemployment rate remains low, there are signs of a softening employment picture, including narrowing wage gains and increasing unemployment rates. Despite this, the labor market is still historically strong, with the US economy adding 216,000 jobs in the previous month. However, several high-profile companies, such as Google, Amazon, and Citigroup, have announced layoffs at the start of the year.
