Help Wanted OnLineTM Job Demand

Help Wanted OnLineTM from The Conference Board is a measure of real-time labor demand captured through online job ads. The Conference Board compiles online job ads from over 1,200 job boards and publishes the data in an online application that covers national, state, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and county levels, detailed by occupation, industry and employer.

Since the online ads are a direct indication of hiring intent by employers, the ads serve as a measure of labor demand. Reports of hiring demand by area, industry, occupation and employer are a valuable tool for identifying employment opportunities and helping with the reemployment of Florida’s out-of-work citizens. The Department of Economic Opportunity, Bureau of Labor Market Statistics compiles and publishes reports every month from Help Wanted Online that show hiring demand at the state level and by regional workforce regions.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are key elements in an innovation economy. These disciplines are foundational to the continued growth of high-skill, high-wage industries in Florida and they offer numerous career opportunities for Florida’s citizens. 

Florida is the first state to develop a state-specific list of the occupations that define STEM. Developing a Florida-specific definition of STEM occupations supports the strategic economic development priorities of the state and assists our education partners in preparing the talent needed to grow STEM industries.
