Healthcare Job Postings Drop, But Demand Steady
June Shelp, vice president at The Conference Board, said online job postings across all sectors of the economy have increased by 1 million advertised vacancies since the end of the recession in June 2009. “Following the rapid HWOL rises in labor demand in the 4th quarter 2009 and 1st quarter 2010, labor demand has now settled into more modest growth, pointing to a moderate growth in employment through the end of 2010,” Shelp said.
The Conference Board reported high demand in computer and mathematical science, transportation and material moving, and architecture and engineering, while job listings fell for sales and related workers.
