SimplyHired discusses that the Bureau of Labor Statistics released May unemployment totals that declined to 9.7%. Private-sector employers added 83K jobs in May, but temporary census jobs ended, shedding 225K workers. CareerBuilder.com reports that private-sector employers added twice the number of jobs in June 2010 compared to May. Private-sector payroll has increased by 600K YTD 2010 compared to 3.7 million job losses at this time last year.
Indeed Growth by Function:
Indeed tracks employment trends by industry each month. Indeed's June 2010 trend by industry survey shows growth in all fields, except real estate. While health care is only up 2% over June 2009, there were nearly twice the number of health care openings (670K) than retail (346K) the next closest industry. The greatest changes were in transportation (a whopping 73%), hospitality (47%) and retail (41%) consistent with recent Who's Hiring articles I publish each Monday.
