Limited national growth.
Nationwide job openings increased 7.7% from August, with a93.2% year-over-year improvement from last September. “The increase we’ve seen is duelargely to seasonal hiring,” explained Gautam Godhwani, CEO of SimplyHired.com. “Whileunemployment is reported to be higher than expected, this 7.7% growth indicates thatthere are certain types of jobs available. Recovery from the recession is slow, but we areseeing a steady upward movement.”

While the healthcare industry posted only a 3.4%increase, hospitals were top employers across all 25 major metros.
