Professional social media network LinkedIn says hiring on its site has reached the highest levels it has ever seen.

The U.S. hiring rate across all industries rose 7.4% in November compared to October, according to the company. And compared to last November (when the pandemic was raging), the hiring rate was up 26%.

“National hiring also jumped 5.7% above pre-COVID (February 2020) levels — the highest rate we’ve seen not only since the pandemic started, but since LinkedIn began tracking hiring rates in early 2015,” LinkedIn economists wrote in a new report.
