Job Postings & Skills Using real-time job postings data, we can look at the types of skills in the greatest demand. This type of data is not traditional labor market data. It is supplementary and allows us to see immediate trends in hiring practices and employer preferences. However, this data is only available at the county level and is therefore not specific to the North County region. In 2015, there were a total of 37,400 job postings that listed a High School education as the only education requirement. Among these job postings, 13% listed sales as a required skill, 12% listed repair and 11% listed mathematics. Figure 1 lists the top 20 skills for job postings requiring a high school education. Many of the skills listed for these occupations are general skills that translate across various industries. Figure 1.
