National Security Sector: Hiring Trends to Note

Wanted Analytics brings us the following data: Employers in the National Security industry placed almost 11,000 new job ads over the past thirty days, a 200% increase versus the same time period last year.  This was one of the few industries to see an increase in hiring demand during this time period so we decided to take a look at who is hiring and the types of positions they are trying to fill.

The two top employers are the Army National Guard and the U.S. Airforce.  Combined, they placed 95% of the ads.  Registered Nurses is the most in-demand occupation that the Army National Guard and U.S. Airforce are trying to fill.  As you can see from the chart below, there are many different occupations in demand and the demand for each of these occupations is up substantially versus the prior year.  You’ll note there is an n/a for Dietitians and Nutritionists as there were no listings for that occupation last year.

All but one of the cities saw an increase in hiring demand; however, the Washington D.C. area is only down slightly versus the prior year.  Los Angeles saw the greatest increase in volume of job ads, over 450% increase year-over-year.
