It will come as no surprise that job postings saw a significant decrease in the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic, with postings falling below 800k from an earlier high of around 1.3mm.  What may be surprising, however, is the significant increase in job postings for the month of October 2020.  Even with the pandemic seeing new highs in a majority of states, October saw job postings top 1.8mm, which is more than the final two months of 2019 combined.
