North America Sees a Hiring Boom in Ship Industry Digital Media Roles

North America extended its dominance for digital media hiring among shipbuilding companies in the three months to January.

The number of roles in North America accounted for 55.8% of total digital media employment, up from 37.7% in the same quarter last year.

This was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 3.8 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 sectors 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.
