As most of you already know, when searching for new work opportunities it helps to know how to keep track of trends while job searching — this includes keyword trends as well as hiring trends.
In 2 of our previous posts on this topic,
we discussed the importance of using the correct keywords when searching for work. We discovered that searching for opportunities the HRIS industry, that each of the common keywords – HRIS, HRMS, HCM and HR Technology – will provide different results and the number of opportunities dwindles with each term used, respectively.
- the keyword ‘HRIS’ will provide more opportunities than ‘HRMS’, though not necessarily the same HRMS opportunities will be listed when using the keyword ‘HRIS’, which also means
- the keyword ‘HRMS’ will provide more opportunities than ‘HCM’ but less than HRIS, though not necessarily the same HRIS nor HCM opportunities will be listed when using the keyword ‘HRMS’
You can figure out the situation for the last two keywords.
Live data from the LARGEST opportunities job listing database…
In the January posts, we had promised a quarterly review of the same graphs provided in the above articles. In preparing the new posts, we discover the said graphs are ‘live’ – that is, they update automatically.
This discovery threw on a switch to the lightbulb over our head here. Most of you already know we have a job listing site — and if you didn’t know, you know now! It’s located at http://bit.ly/hrisjobs).
As the graphs are live, we have now implemented them in the footer of all the pages for our job listings, right above the DiceTV videos that are updated every Tuesday and Thursday.
Eventually, we will be expand this site to be more than one display page — so the page could look a bit ‘busy’ for now.
Update on 2012 Q1 Hiring Trends and Job Search Keyword Trends
As the data has really not changed much since our posts were published in January, we really don’t have an update for you… Though the economy appears to be ‘improving’ with new jobs being noted for the last few months, we still remain hesitant to call this a recovery. Here’s why…
Employment Status of Job Listings and Internship Listings…

NOT the best picture, even for a stagflation… Why the ‘unhappy face’ in spite of new jobs on the upswing? The jobs ‘appear’ to be increasing but what goods and services are increasing? You know, the things you buy at the store…
Though the chart is not included here, the transportation sector has NOT been doing well. Transportation is the category that includes the shipping of raw goods and finished materials — if the level for orders for raw goods is low and the shipment of items to stores and warehouses are also low, what kills are being filled by the new jobs? That would be services — meaning productivity is still not strong enough to mandate long-term planning and hiring. Having grown-up in a family owned transportation business and performed several studies in college to verify my thoughts, when the transportation sector starts seeing growth, the country is within 6 months of seeing economic growth as well. This is not the case with this economy….
Fortune50/Inc500 Companies versus
Fortune100, 500 and 1000 Companies…

The Fortune 50, 100, and 500 have swung up — but very slowly. For even a mediocre recovery, the increase would be much more (again, my argument about the transportation sector).
Both the ‘Inc500′ and the ‘Fortune 1000′, which represent much of the economy beyond the very small businesses, have a negative slope — in other words, they are not feeling ‘the love’ that the Fortune 50, 100, and 500 seem to be experiencing. The answers are not too difficult to find — ask most any CEO of any of these sectors and they will tell you they do not have too much faith in what is happening, even though some things ‘appear’ to be doing well… Meaning, the horizon is not as bright as the skies overhead.
Our new footer for our jobs listing site…
To keep tabs on the HRIS industry, we will be keeping the graphs on our jobs listings implemented and updated in real-time. We have selected several vendors to follow — if there are others worth considering, let us know!
For now, our entire footer for our jobs listings site looks like this. The videos will be larger (400×325), they have been downsized for appearance here…
