Very interesting employment report from Europe -- I am pondering why the US is lagging other developed economies in job growth at this point...

Yeah, and? Who cares whether "on line" job opportunities are increasing, or not? The report says nothing about whether job opportunities as a whole are increasing. The increase in online offerings may be offset by decreases in other offerings. There may be fewer offerings overall, even if there are more offerings on line.

The Monster Employment Index is a snapshot of "online worker demand" not online job opportunities. It measures online recruitment activity via their recruitment channel.

The index is encouraging news becauses it posts a broad based increase for various sectors of the economy.
