While the national unemployment rate for August (8.1 percent) is down one full point from a year ago, the Monster Employment Index says it’s seen a 6 percent increase in available jobs over that same time frame.
Turns out 18 of the 20 industries it tracks have seen job growth. Here are the top five…
|Year-over-year Growth||% Growth|
|Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, and Hunting||13%|
|Transportation and Warehousing||13%|
Public administration (down 16 percent) and education (down 3 percent) were the two industries posting fewer jobs.
The index also tracks jobs by market, with all 28 metro areas seeing a growth in listings. Houston, Dallas, Orlando, Chicago, and Indianapolis saw growth of 14 or 15 percent. The slowest job growth came from San Francisco, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Seattle.
