Healthcare Online Job Postings Drop in April

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media, May 4, 2011

In the overall economy, online advertised vacancies fell 123,800 to slightly more than 4.3 million. "Labor demand has risen to levels we last saw just before the official start of the recession four years ago," said June Shelp, vice president at The Conference Board, in a media release. "At the same time, the number of unemployed has doubled and now stands at 13.5 million, and some professions have clearly fared better than others in job opportunities. At this stage, there are occupations where the supply/demand rate has fallen significantly and there are two or less unemployed for every advertised vacancy. However, other occupations are still experiencing relatively high supply/demand rates above 4.0, reflecting the fact that there are over four unemployed for every advertised vacancy."
