All information below is for today’s date: January 25, 2016.
Indeed.com is king of the national job search sites. Today, nationwide, there are 3,368,867 jobs posted. You can search by state, remote, freelance, home based, and I’m sure there is more content that I haven’t discovered yet. You can search by pay range, location, or job type – such as full-time, etc. For example, today’s listing for writers, nationwide:

At the bottom of every page are these helpful choices:
Jobs – Salaries – Trends – Forums – Browse Jobs – Tools – API – About – Help Center
The Trends section is especially eye opening for we writers and editors.
The writers’ trends “absolute” graph showed a sharp spike of 0.3 percent of matching job postings on January 10th and now appears to have fallen into a pit. It seems jobs are filling up with new employees. The “relative” graph shows the daily growth of the site for writers.
The editors’ trends for the “absolute” and “relative” graphs seems to be almost the same information as the writers.
On the upper left of the Trends page, you can search these job trends “per capita”, “job market competition,” and “industry employment trends.”
I’m not a great reader of graphs. So, if someone has another interpretation, please let me know.
