Healthcare job postings reach record high

No industry tracked by Indeed’s Industry Employment Trends has ever had more job postings than healthcare did in July. An 8% month-over-month increase in job postings helped healthcare reach the monthly high.

Medical assistant, pharmacy technician, and registered nurse job titles received the most job seeker clicks. The most popular keyword searches for jobs in healthcare were medical assistant, lpn, and rn.


After larger gains early in the year, manufacturing job postings increased 2% month-over-month in June. The slow down continued in July; job postings for manufacturing increased by just 2%. Assembler and maintenance technician jobs received the most clicks from job seekers.

Real estate

With a 9% increase in June and an 11% increase in July, real estate has had the largest month-over-month percentage increase in job postings of any industry tracked by Indeed over the last two months. These gains come after six straight months of real estate job posting declines. Because the volume of real estate job postings is relatively low, large monthly percentage increases may not yet indicate a sustained growth trend.

Real estate job postings in New York, Atlanta, and Houston received the most job seeker clicks.
