Search terms on job sights can give insight into what kinds of jobs people are looking for at the moment. Today, it would seem, people most want jobs that don't require any prior experience, according to Time. Job posting site Indeed found that the number of searches for "no experience required" jobs grew by 1140 percent over last year. Indeed isn't sure what's causing this spike, whether people wanting to switch careers or re-enter the workforce after a long absence or something else, but they know it's happening and it's big. Other large, but not nearly as large, search term increases included: "hurricane relief" (682 percent), tech/software (467 percent), cannabis/marijuana (401 percent) and remote/work from home (385 percent).
