LinkUp’s job listing data, collected daily and directly from company websites since 2007, can provide unprecedented insight into market trends at the industry, geographic, or company level, equipping today’s investors with a unique edge.
Novel sources of company data can be key to developing timely and robust alpha, which means investors need access to deep wells of granular, real-time market information. While government sources of labor market trends are released on a lag, LinkUp’s job listing data always reflects the immediate labor landscape, maximizing the strategic impact of our alternative data.
“A simple trend in hiring demand can give an indication of company outlook, more job postings in a particular location may help signal economic business conditions in a city or country, while the job posting text provides information around the skill sets and technologies that a company is focusing on.”
