"This month's losses in managerial recruitment were minor but we are still ahead of where we were three years ago," says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com.
Several cities had increased hiring this month: Riverside (+16%), Denver (+11%), and Dallas (+10%) saw double digit increases. Other cities showing sizable gains were Tampa (+9%), Boston (+8%), Phoenix (+8%), and Memphis (+8%).
