AG JOB MARKET MONTHLY REPORT


ABOUT THE DASHBOARD

For this research, data was collected through Google’s job search engine utilizing an Application Programming Interface (API) provided by SerpApi. The data collected for the report includes job title, company name, description, salary (if posted), posting date, and original job board site name.

Not all online job postings appear on Google’s job search engine and as a result the data discussed in the report should be treated as a sample of job openings existing within the agriculture industry. Indeed.com, the number 1 job site in the world, does not share job posting data with Google. Google’s job search engine represents only a fraction of jobs posted online. Job postings can be posted on multiple job boards such as LinkedIn, Glassdoor, as well as company websites that allow Google’s Cloud Talent Solution to analyze their job postings and display them on Google’s job search engine.

Job postings that are available on Google’s job search engine are curated to best fit the search terms of the user. The data in this report was collected using a general search term of “agriculture”. Data presented in this report could impose bias that is specific to Google’s job search engine data. Although possible, we believe the data collected is valuable for industry employers as a metric for comparing company hiring to the agricultural industry. Therefore, this report is an analysis of Google’s data and is not fully representative of the agricultural job market.

Note that not all online job postings appear on Google’s job search engine. Job postings can be posted on multiple job boards such as LinkedIn, Glassdoor, as well as company websites that allow Google’s Cloud Talent Solution to analyze their job postings and display them on Google’s job search engine. Job postings that are available to Google’s Cloud Talent Solution are curated to best fit the search terms of the user. For this study, the search term included: “agriculture.” This allows for a broad variety of jobs to be collected that exist within the agricultural job market. The data discussed in this report represents all job postings in the United States collected from Google’s job search engine from June 2021 to present. Google’s job search engine is a conglomerate of multiple online job boards. Within the data, no jobs were collected from Indeed.com. Indeed.com does not allow Google access to their job board unlike other popular job sites. Google must be granted access to a company’s job posting before advertising on Google’s job search engine. Many job openings appear on multiple job boards at a given time to get more advertising to potential employees.

Google’s job search engine hosts thousands of job boards’ data. It was calculated that 1,091 individual job boards are consolidated into the data present in this report. LinkedIn’s job postings make up 22.7% data, making it the most popular job board for hosting agricultural jobs in the data. Due to the immense amount of job boards available, job advertising is a competitive market. Companies seeking premium talent should post to the more popular job boards which produce more traffic.
