Job growth still was inconsistent, effecting some cities, industries and job functions more than others. Some job markets remain in the dumper - Miami and Los Angeles held flat but Riverside CA dropped 2 spots - all three remain in deep trouble with up to a 1:8 (Riverside and Los Angeles were 1:8) ratio of unemployed workers to job advertisements.
Indeed tracks employment trends by industry each month. Indeed's September 2010 trend by industry survey shows growth in all fields. While health care shows the least growth from last year at 14% compared to September 2009, there were almost twice the number of health care openings (811K) than retail (410K), the next closest industry. The greatest changes were in transportation (a massive 111%), manufacturing (68%), media/newspaper (67%) and retail (65%).
