Last week job search engine LinkUp announced they were opening up their job market data going back to 2007 via the FactSet marketplace. According to the announcement;
The OFM will feature LinkUp Raw, which contains the complete set of LinkUp’s job market data, dating back to 2007. The dataset includes full job listings sourced directly from employer websites, as well as related statistics and analysis. Delivered daily, LinkUp Raw consists of four distinct components: individual job records, individual job descriptions, core analytics, and company reference data.
“Quality and accessibility are absolutely vital to users of alternative data,” said Molly Moseley, Chief Operating Officer at LinkUp. “Our collaboration with FactSet will allow organizations to easily access our high-quality jobs dataset, perform deeper analysis, and create models and signals to assess and predict job growth and decline.”
LinkUp’s dataset includes 3.5 million daily active job listings from 60,000 companies and contains more than 20 unique job and company-level attributes and identifiers, such as, job title, job URL, company name, location, occupation code, sector code, ticker, reference data, and more.
LinkUp says these datasets will help clients “gain an even deeper understanding into individual firms, in addition to broader labor market trends.”
