COVID and Canadian Job Seekers – Job searches for these companies surged

Grocery stores and household delivery services have become key pillars of the economy amid the COVID-19 crisis. Canadian job seekers have taken notice. As companies like Walmart and Amazon announced major hiring plans, job searches for both on Indeed Canada surged, along with those for large grocers including Costco and Loblaws.*

Searches containing “Amazon” spiked first, jumping up as a share of total Canadian job searches to 303% above its February average on March 17. Queries including “Walmart” surged most, reaching 374% above its average February share on March 21. While not quite as dramatic, searches for the names of several large grocery stores also increased, peaking on March 23 at 173% above their February share of Canadian job searches.
