One Month Launches JobSignal, the First Real-Time Job Skills Trend Tracker

Powered by Current, Jobsignal Helps Job Hunters Understand the Skills They Need to Get Hired at Tech Startups

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 06, 2015) - One Month, the best place to learn a new technical skill online in just one month, announced today that it has launched JobSignal, the first real-time job skills trend tracker. Powered by analytics tool Current from analytics startup Spinnakr, JobSignal mines thousands of current AngelList job listings to compile a real-time dashboard of the skills hiring managers are looking for across the key segments of development, sales and marketing. The dashboard includes not only the top skills required in each segment, but also lists skills that are trending higher and likely becoming more important for job candidates.

For example, in late July, the top skills required for developer roles were Ruby, Swift, and Python, with the top trending skills being Swift, MongoDB and Redis -- indicating that developers who don't already know these languages need to brush up on their skills.

"Coding languages and other skills startups are looking for change so rapidly -- it can be hard for job candidates to keep up with what the market is looking for, much less keep up on their own skillset," said Mattan Griffel, founder and CEO of One Month. "Our JobSignal is a great tool for helping candidates prioritize their own professional development, and make sure they stay relevant and marketable."

One Month offers a variety of online courses designed to enable people to learn a new technical skill -- such as Ruby, Python and Swift -- in just one month. The video-based courses include online access to teachers who help students succeed. One Month has a completion rate that is 4x the industry average. More than 25,000 people have taken its courses; most are working professionals or entrepreneurs looking to enhance their marketability or even change careers. Enrollments start at just $49 per month.

Spinnakr Co-founder Michael Mayernick said, "With JobSignal, we've unlocked an extremely valuable data set for anyone looking to get hired by a tech startup. The pace of change and innovation in tech can be blistering -- JobSignal gives candidates a leg up by ensuring they are up-to-date on exactly which skills are must-haves in the current job market. We're excited to launch this with One Month."

JobSignal is a free tool for candidates and hiring managers. Anyone can get a real-time view of the dashboard at any time at http://jobsignal.io. One can also subscribe to a weekly feed via email, to have the information delivered straight to their inbox.
