Healthcare Online Job Postings Fall in June
Online job listings for healthcare practitioners, technical workers, and healthcare support staff fell in June, the third straight month of declines, according to The Conference Board Help Wanted Online report.
Labor demand for healthcare practitioners and technical occupations fell by 16,500 listings in June to 548,700. Occupations that saw declines included physical therapists, general internists, and family and general practitioners. Healthcare support positions fell by 4,800 new listings to 114,500 in June, The Conference Board reports.
The board's Help Wanted Online Data Series tracks more than 1,000 online job boards across the United States.
Even with June's decline in online job listings, there were nearly three jobs for every healthcare technician and practitioner job seeker, with an average salary of $34.27 an hour. Conversely, there were 1.9 healthcare support workers for every online job listing, with pay averaging $12.94 an hour, The Conference Board reports.
In the overall economy, on line job listings fell by 99,700 listings in June, to 4.4 million, partially offsetting the overall increase of 148,800 new listings in May. The Supply/Demand rate stands at 3.11, which means there were just over three unemployed for every online advertised vacancy in May, the latest monthly data available for unemployment.
