Management jobs in Connecticut experience increase

Posted on May 1, 2011

According to a poll, management jobs in Connecticut and other states are enjoying an increase.

The new April 2011 CareerCast.com/JobSerf Employment Index, which measures managerial hiring activity online, continues to rise, trending upward for the fourth month in a row. Despite a minuscule gain of 1.1 over last month, the April 2011 Index, at 110.6 points, now stands at its highest level since January 2008, with an 18.3 point lead over April 2010 and a 69.2 point gain over April 2009.

“Strong hiring continues to be sustained. Our research showed continued improvement as the month progressed,” says Jay Martin, COO, JobSerf. “80% of the cities in the Index showed a double digit increase in hiring activity this month.”

Detroit had the greatest improvement in per capita hiring based on percentage, with a 25% gain, followed by San Diego (+23%) Indianapolis (+22%), and Dallas (+21%). The only city to lose jobs in April was San Francisco (-2%) while the city with the least amount of job growth was Memphis (+3%).

“Sustained managerial hiring activity can fuel momentum for all levels of employment, which is especially good news for college graduates looking for new jobs,” says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com. “As hiring activity gains steam, we are poised for an upswing in the job market, which bodes well for those who have been out of work for many months.”
