Job growth still was inconsistent, effecting some cities, industries and job functions more than others. Some job markets remain in the dumper - Miami, Detroit held flat but Los Angeles dropped 2 spots - all three remain in deep trouble with up to a 1:8 (Los Angeles was 1:7) ratio of unemployed workers to job advertisements.
Indeed tracks employment trends by industry each month. Indeed's August 2010 trend by industry survey shows growth in all fields, except health care. While health care shows the least growth from last year at 17% compared to August 2009, there were over twice the number of health care openings (819K) than retail (408K) the next closest industry. The greatest changes were in transportation (a humongous 119%), manufacturing (67%), media/newspaper (65%) and retail (55%).
