Beyond.com, Inc., the world's largest network of niche career communities, today released its Second Quarter 2010 Career Trend Analysis Report, which revealed more than 48 percent of industries experienced a quarterly percentage gain in online jobs posted, signifying a healthier economy leading into the second half of the year.
"In June, we spoke to hundreds of HR managers during an industry conference and were excited to hear about their plans to hire in the months to come. We expect to report slow and steady job growth into next quarter."The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the unemployment rate was unchanged in the month of July holding at 9.5 percent. However, Beyond.com's data indicates the job market is showing slow and steady signs of a recovery and hard-hitting sectors such as retail and travel are beginning to expand once again.
According to the Beyond.com quarterly report, which gathers information across thousands of top-tier industry and local career sites, more than 73 percent of employers were looking for full-time employees, an increase of 12 percent from the previous quarter. Healthcare and Medical represented the largest percentage gain in overall jobs posted (5.57 percent), followed by Sales and Sales Management with 2.24 percent.
Jobs continued to grow into July, increasing by 1.17 percent over June. In July, entry level positions showed the largest increase of 39 percent and Merchandising, Purchasing and Retail jobs representing the largest jump among industries with an increase of 137 percent. Customer Service had the next largest increase (77 percent) and Travel, Hospitality and Restaurant following behind (41 percent). This is a positive sign to see, especially since some of these industries had dropped during the previous quarter.
"We are excited to see job numbers continuing to grow and hard-hitting sectors beginning to rebound," said Rich Milgram, CEO of Beyond.com, Inc. "In June, we spoke to hundreds of HR managers during an industry conference and were excited to hear about their plans to hire in the months to come.
