Simply Hired reported its measure of U.S. job openings rose by 4.6 percent in February compared to January. Among industries, legal jobs posted the largest increase in help-wanted ads, up 29.1 percent. It was followed by travel, which rose 20.3 percent.
Construction reported the only decrease in online job ads during the month, falling 12.1 percent.
“Simply Hired’s data shows solid growth in job openings across all industries other than construction, which, we believe, has been significantly impacted by weather,” CEO James Beriker said. “Based on our data, job seekers who have or who can acquire the required skill sets have a growing set of opportunities for employment. We are optimistic about the employment market heading into spring.”
