Total Job Openings Increased 7.2% in September


Total September 2011 nonfarm job openings, posted today, increased 7.2% to 3.354 million. Since total job openings declined in August, an increase of this size is a good sign. Hires increased 4.6%. Total separations increased 4.8%, with quits increasing 2.1% and discharges increasing 4.1%. Most industries experienced an increase in job openings. Construction, however, declined 26.5% to 75,000.
