We are now powering comprehensive job search for the New York Times Job Market. Here is the Press Release.
After searching the site’s own job listings at jobs.nytimes.com, users can click ‘Job Market Web Results’ to return more jobs from thousands of websites, powered by Indeed.
The New York Times Group can now boast comprehensive job search powered by Indeed.com integrated into its two biggest web properties – About.com and NYTimes.com.
We think it is great that this eminent media company has embraced the radically improved approach to job search that we have pioneered. As the Business 2.0 blog puts it, the New York Times is ‘embracing the inevitable’.
Gawker Jobs, a media job search, was launched today. It’s a cobranded job search powered by Indeed, customized to include only jobs from a subset of our index most relevant to the media industry.
Its a unique media job search experience – combining the power of Indeed’s aggregation and search technology within a bounded universe of media-rich job sources. In contrast to media job boards, Gawker Jobs offers a far more comprehensive index, comprising many thousands of current media jobs. Users can drill down by keyword and location to find exactly the right jobs, and searches can be easily narrowed by the addition of more keywords.
Gawker puts it more charmingly: Introducing Gawker Jobs, a Whole New Way to Be Unproductive.

If you use Google Desktop Search, you can track your Indeed job searches using our Job Search Plug-in for Google Desktop Sidebar. Once you’ve installed the plug-in, just enter your search query and location, and matching jobs will automatically appear in your sidebar as we find them.
The rise of search engines has given the searchable current index a familiar look and feel. But how often are you able to generate a historic trend graph dynamically from a searchable archive?
Indeed’s new Job Trends allows you to do just that, using over 35 million jobs that we indexed in 2005. Enter any job search query and it instantly plots a line graph showing the percentage of Indeed’s index containing your search terms over a 12-month period. We found a few nuggets – trends based on events, seasonality, and secular shifts:
Last year’s extraordinary hurricanes destroyed a lot of jobs, but also generated many relief jobs.
Weather is not always so unpredictable, of course, so farmers regularly plan their seasonal hiring.
But perhaps nothing is so predictable as the annual tax preparation season which some companies specialize in.
Other firms, however, just keep hiring more and more people.
And then there are the new new jobs that seem to spring from nowhere.
Try searching yourself, and please tell us if you find any interesting job trends!
