Job Market Reports: Hiring Up

There is good job market news to report for January and February.  

Indeed’s Industry Employment Trends shows that 10 of the 12 major industries had more job openings in February than a year ago.  These are advertised positions, so they are a good indicator of a positive job market trend.

Indeed.com also reported on companies that added a significant number of jobs in January.  The list includes 7,000 new jobs at JCPenney, 5,000 listings at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) and 4,000 new job postings  from AT&T .

TweetMyJOBS reports that the site featured 1.2 million Twitter job postings in the last 30 days with postings for more than  7,000 companies.

The February 2010 CareerCast.com/JobSerf Employment Index, which measures managerial recruitment activity online, also showed  growth in this month with an increase of 12.5 points since January. Cities leading the rebound in per capita hiring gains were Cincinnati (+39%), Cleveland (+37%), Hartford (+28%) and Indianapolis (+24%).

With over 8 million jobs lost since the recession began, the job market still has a long way to go, but, at this point, any reports of an increase in hiring is progress in the right direction.
