Monster's Online Employment Index UP in OCT

The November report should be out any day, but above is the October Monster Employment Index, and here are some October 2007 Index Highlights:

• The Index climbed to its highest level since May, demonstrating greater overall online job availability at the outset of the fourth quarter

• Year-over-year growth rate rose moderately to 9% – a slight improvement from August and September

• There were expanded online opportunities in October for management; and business and financial operations; suggest a reassuring corporate hiring outlook

• Demand within construction and real estate industries declined, reflecting continued hardship in the building and housing sectors

• New England reports largest rise among regions, while Cincinnati, Kansas City and Cleveland registered the highest rate of increase on the month among the top 28 metro markets

Note: The Monster Employment Index is a broad and comprehensive monthly analysis of U.S. online job demand based on a real-time review of employer job opportunities culled from a large, representative selection of corporate career sites and job boards, including Monster. The Monster Employment Index presents a snapshot of employer online recruitment activity nationwide.
