Online jobs rise in 22 of top 28 metro markets

October 18 2007

The local employment index released today by Monster Worldwide Inc. (NASD: MNST) reported online jobs rose in 22 of the top 28 U.S. metropolitan markets month-over-month in September.

Cincinnati, Detroit, and Pittsburgh posted the biggest month-over-month gains, rising four points each on the index to levels of 110, 110, and 122, respectively. Architecture and engineering as well as computer and mathematical occupations surged in Cincinnati and Detroit, according to Monster. Pittsburgh posted high demand for information technology and engineering workers along with blue-collar workers.

"The September findings of the Monster local employment index demonstrate a slight pick-up in online recruitment activity across a majority of the nation's largest metro areas," said Steve Pogorzelski, executive VP of global sales and customer development. "Online job availability remains up on the year in most markets, but is generally growing at a slower pace, suggesting loosening labor market conditions across the country."
