SimplyHired discusses that the Bureau of Labor Statistics released May unemployment totals that declined to 9.7%. Non-farm employers added 431K jobs in May, but a large percentage were due to temporary US Census hiring. CareerBuilder.com reports that non-farm payroll has increased by 982K since December 2009.
Indeed Growth by Function:
Indeed tracks employment trends by industry each month. Indeed's June 2010 (based on May results) trend by industry survey shows growth in all fields. While health care is only up 3% over May 2009, there were nearly twice the number of health care openings (672K) than retail (354K) the next closest industry. The greatest changes were in transportation (67%) retail (53%) and hospitality (49%), consistent with recent Who's Hiring articles I publish each Monday.
