Healthcare jobs in Connecticut are growing
Posted on October 30, 2012
The economy is looking up, and it appears the number of healthcare jobs in Connecticut is growing.
At the same time, hospitality job postings have risen continuously since the end of July and increased another 1% during September. This is according to Indeed.com’s industry trends report.
The industry’s longer term trend was also positive. US employers posted 44% more hospitality jobs in September than they did during September 2011. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hospitality led all other industries in hiring during August.
Indeed’s Industry Employment Trends show job postings by U.S. employers retreated slightly from August levels in nine of the twelve major industries tracked. The level of postings rose steadily across most major industries from January through May, but declined during June and July. August saw every industry (except real estate and transportation) return to positive monthly growth.
According to Indeed, information technology job postings declined slightly, 1%, over the month. Despite a 22% decline in job postings over the year and two straight months of negative growth, the industry continues to have the most jobs available after healthcare and retail. Graphic design, information technology, and desktop support were the top three IT job searches in September.
Meanwhile retail had the largest increase in job postings during September. It was one of three industries (along with transportation and hospitality) that saw positive monthly gains. Retail job postings received the most clicks from job seekers in New York, Atlanta, and Chicago. Customer service and store manager job titles received the most clicks.
