September 2010 Employment Trends - Flat as a pancake - Page 2

The good news behind this is private sector jobs increased 825K year to date, led by the health care industry that added 21K jobs per month and food service has added 104K jobs in 2010.

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.

Growth by Function:

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%).
