LinkedIn Labor

Half the population of the US has a LinkedIn profile.  That’s a pretty good data set for analyzing the workforce and gaining a “unique insight into the real-time dynamics of Americans starting new jobs, learning new skills and moving to new cities.”  LinkedIn offers a monthly report on workforce dynamics for the country as a whole with links to reports for most major metropolitan areas.

Recruiting top talent has become job one for many C-Level executives and is likely to be so for some time to come.  Understanding the dynamics in the market you’re hiring from may give you a leg up on the competition.
