WANTED Technologies Announces Detailed Canadian Hiring Trends by National Occupational Classification

NEW YORK, Apr 5, 2012, 2012 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- WANTED Technologies now collects and classifies online Canadian job ads by the four-digit National Occupational Classification code in their AnalyticsTM platform, providing the most detailed employment statistics available in Canada.


WANTED Technologies (TSX: VAN), the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace, now provides its detailed analysis of online hiring activity in Canada through their industry-leading AnalyticsTM platform using the National Occupational Classification, a widely-used standard established by the Canadian government.

"Labour market and economic analysts now have the ability to use a timely set of data tomeasure hiring demand in Canada," said Bruce Murray, WANTED's CEO. "We collectonline job posting data and now standardize 80,000 job ads weekly on the widely-used NOC data framework." Because this information is derived from online job postings, it provides a current view of market activity at both a highly-detailed, company specific level as well as on a much broader, consolidated level.

WANTED's employment market data and analysis is used by clients to identify companies or sectors of the economy where hiring demand is increasing or decreasing. This intelligence is then used to help the unemployed find jobs, develop educational programs to drive skills, and attract employers.

"By bringing our labour market demand data in line with the government's statistical data,we hope to make it easier for analysts to see what is taking place in the economy," saidMurray. "And the result, we hope, will be the ability to make better decisions based ontimely and reliable data."
