Startup job hunting is getting easier.
And the reason is more people are searching for jobs online, according to an infographic released by CareerCast, the job search firm that provides free job listings to small businesses.
The job search industry is growing at a phenomenal rate.
In 2015, there were approximately 1.2 million online job postings, and this number grew to 2.5 million in 2020, the firm said.
The industry’s growing popularity comes with the potential for employers to make hiring decisions online, said the company’s co-founder, Chris Gierzwinski.
The key to success in this new field is that people are having a better time searching online than they do in-person.
Job seekers are able to interact with employers who may not necessarily have an expert in the industry, Gierzelis said.
That is especially true when it comes to job seekers who don’t have experience in the job, such as people with no prior experience or those with a limited knowledge of the industry.
The infographic, released Wednesday, shows the jobs available for each category of job seekers, from “engineer” to “data scientist.”
In the data scientist job, employers can search for people with specific skills in their field, such the ability to design databases or analyze data.
The engineers are the most sought-after for the jobs in this job, and there are also opportunities for job seekers with a background in other fields, such in finance or engineering.
“In-person hiring is still very hard,” Gierzeski said.
“But it is starting to get easier and easier.”
The infographic also breaks down the jobs that may be easier to find online.
The top-rated jobs in the finance and accounting field are in the health and safety industry, according a report released in October by Glassdoor.
There are also careers in medical technology and in social media management, which may also have some connection to online job hunting.
