Each month various government agencies publish reports and data on jobs and job availability around the United States; throughout the past few months unfortunately job growth had been performing below the expected rate but today the U.S. Labor Department had some good news to spread. According to the Labor Department the months of July and August saw 3 year highs in terms of the number of jobs posted as available.
Obviously the number of available jobs is not as strong of a positive as the number of new employees but according to officials it is simply good to see companies are beginning to start hiring more people. The availability of jobs has been dramatically low for nearly all unemployed people but now that job postings are getting more common some of them finally have hope.
In July alone a reported 3.2 million jobs were posted as available; this is a significant increase from previous months and analysts say this growth will likely continue for the rest of the year. Hopefully following the increase of job postings the United States will also see an increase in the number of jobs being filled. For now it is good to see an increase in available jobs and job postings especially since the likely follow up is a significant decrease in the unemployment rate nationwide. More reports like this are expected towards the end of the next few months as more data is complied.
