Report highlights for January 2013:
- Job Postings for January were up 27% over December 2012 and 22% over January 2012.
- While December is usually a soft job posting month, setting up favorable January to December comparisons, December 2012 was the strongest December for job posting volume since 2007, meaning this double-digit increase for January 2013 was that much more significant.
- The highest volume of positions posted this past month, similar to December, was for roles in Administrative, Accounting and Medical.
- Greenwich, Stamford and Westport were the hot markets for the month.
David Lewis, CEO of AllCountyJobs.com, which includes FairfieldCountyJobs.com, commented, “With the presidential election behind us and much of the fiscal cliff addressed and/or stabilized, the job market flourished in January.” Lewis added, “It looks as if employers in the county have started to once again focus on expansion and hiring in general. While the state numbers may indicate a level of softness and stagnancy in Connecticut, Fairfield County is showing definite signs of job market health.”
