Monster’s U.S. employment index dipped two points in July to 144, a reading that is in line with seasonal expectations, Monster Worldwide Inc. announced today.
On an annual basis, the index rose 4 percent, or six points, the 18th consecutive month of growth.
“The Index has sustained positive annual growth during each month of 2011 despite a cautious economic environment,” said Jesse Harriott, senior vice president and chief knowledge officer at Monster Worldwide. “Demand for workers within the commerce-related sectors as well as demand for specialized skill sets like IT, engineering and healthcare, continue to offset the ongoing reductions in the public sector.”
The index is based on a review of online job ads taken from a selection of websites, including Monster.
