Employment is Booming, Really....

LOS ALTOS, Calif., – March 3, 2009 – Federal Government, Coal Mining and Hospitals all have seen unprecedented growth in the last twelve months according to a new report being published this month by Staffing Industry Analysts, the premier provider of market intelligence about the contingent workforce.

Among the major highlights in Staffing Industry Analysts’ Where Employment is Still Booming report is the fact that there is high demand for workers in a number of different industries, in spite of the economic downturn we are all experiencing.

“From our analysis, during the last 12 months approximately 600,000 jobs were added to the economy in these high growth sectors,” stated Jon Osborne, Director of Research, Staffing Industry Analysts. “Staffing Industry Analysts does research and analysis on the temporary labor market, however we thought it was important to highlight the growth in the traditional employment market. Temporary staffing is the biggest loser in terms of employment. Temporary labor has lost more than 500,000 jobs in the last twelve-months,” Osborne went on to say.

Industries with high demand include:

1. FederalGovernment
2. CoalMining
3. Hospitals
4. EducationalServices
5. OfficesofPhysicians
6. HomeHealthCare
7. OtherAmbulatoryHealthCare
8. Pipeline Transportation
