Online Job Hiring is Back to the Level it was Before Recession

Online Job Hiring is Back to the Level it was Before Recession

According to a recent survey released on Monday by The Conference Board, a corporate-funded think tank in New York, the number of online job postings has returned to the levels that they were before the Great Recession. Although it did have a slight dip in April, but now recovery is on its way. But still, the reports find that California’s job market is more sluggish than most of the others.

June Shelp, the board’s vice president, said that the demand for labor has been rising to levels which were experienced right before the official start of the economic recession four years ago and some professions have even clearly fared better than others in job opportunities.

But obviously as a large number of people were laid off during the World Wide recession, the supply of job openings still lags behind demand. This scenario is perfectly fitting specially California, although San Diego County is performing close to the national average. In San Diego County, the number of total job openings, including jobs that were previously posted, dipped by 500 in April. But new job openings increased by 25 percent as compared to last year and reached 4,400.

Over the past four months, online job postings have increased by 693,300, including a seasonally related decline of 123,800 in April.

But despite the improvement, there were as many as 3.59 job-seekers for every job posting in San Diego County, slightly worse than the national average of 3.05. Although it is much better than in the depths of the recession, when there were more than seven job seekers per opening but still this average still needs a lot of working upon and needs to be improved.

California lags the rest of the nation in terms of hiring, with 4.26 job-seekers per posting, but it is not the worst performer. That distinction belongs to Mississippi, with a ratio of 7.30, followed by Kentucky at 4.45.
