The U.S. employment index improved for the 29th consecutive month on a yearly comparison, but the rate of expansion decelerated in July, Monster Worldwide said Friday.
The employment index rose 2 percent annually, compared to 5 percent growth seen a month ago. At the same time, the index fell to 147 in July from 153 in June.
About 15 of the 20 industries monitored by the index showed positive annual growth in July. Transportation and warehousing recruitment continued to place among the top sectors with 11 percent recruitment growth, at a moderating pace compared to 22 percent in June.
The Monster Employment Index is a monthly gauge of U.S. online job posting activity based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large representative selection of career Web sites and online job listings.
