[Adicio] Increased Hiring in Los Angeles, Miami, and Tampa

30-Jun-2011 | News-Press Release

CARLSBAD, CA/RICHARDSON, TX (June 28, 2011) – Managerial recruitment activity, which trended downward in May, has leveled off somewhat with a minimal decline of 0.2 points in June, according to the new CareerCast.com/JobSerf Employment Index. The June 2011 Index, which measures managerial hiring activity online, is nearly 40 points higher than it was in June 2009, which is a hopeful sign of long-term recovery in the job market. 

“Since we began tracking executive hiring with the Index in 2008, we have traditionally seen a slight increase in hiring from May to June each year,” says Jay Martin, COO, JobSerf. “2011 is the first year we had a loss of jobs in June.” 

Los Angeles saw a gain of 13% in managerial hiring over last month, followed by

Miami (+10%) and Tampa (+4%). Five cities had double-digit losses in June: Seattle (-15%), Washington, DC (-12%), Louisville (-12%), Detroit (-12%) and Indianapolis (-11%). 

“Although we are still concerned about the lag in hiring, the past year has shown a steady rebound in the number of employment opportunities,” says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com. “We can expect a few bumps in the road on the way to a full recovery.”
