North America is experiencing a hiring boom in mining industry digital media roles
North America extended its dominance in digital media hiring among mining companies in the three months to March.
The number of roles in North America accounted for 52.3% of total digital media employment, up from 40.8% in the same quarter last year.
This was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw an 8.6 percentage point change year over year in digital media roles.
The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various industries over time. Using textual analysis, these job postings are then categorized by topic.
GlobalData’s thematic approach to industry activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best positioned to weather the coming disruptions in their industries. These key themes, which include digital media, are chosen to cover “any issue that keeps a CEO up at night.”
Tracking them through job postings allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their feet – and more importantly where the market is growing and contracting.
