Despite Employment Perils, US Is Finally Hiring -- for These Jobs

Despite Employment Perils, US Is Finally Hiring -- for These Jobs

http://www.aolnews.com/2011/03/04/despite-employment-perils-us-is-finally-hiring-for-these-job/

The hiring last month was widespread. Here's a rundown of the sectors adding a significant number of new workers:

Manufacturing. Factories making wood products, fabricated metals, machinery, computers and peripheral equipment, transportation equipment and food products all saw enough demand for their wares to take on new workers.

Construction. The weakest hiring sector in the wake of home and commercial real estate meltdowns could be recovering. The pace of claims for unemployment insurance from construction workers has been dropping. And last month the industry added a net 33,000 new jobs. Especially strong were specialty trade contractors that handle concrete pouring, plumbing, painting, electrical work and the like. And that was true for both residential and business construction.

Wholesale trade. The wholesale establishments that supply supermarkets, department stores, gas stations, universities and even government agencies were a strong source of new jobs. The transportation industries that delivered those goods were also hiring, especially the trucking sector.

Professional and business services. Firms that design and service computer systems, architectural and engineering companies, and the waste services sector all took on new workers.

Employment services. The massive unemployment of recent years has, ironically, bred its own job creation. But that's a double-edged sword: Temporary help services remained a strong source of hiring, which means many employers may still be too wary to offer permanent commitments.

•Health care and social services. The health care industry was among the most resilient during the jobs recession, and now it's strong. Among the big sub-sectors hiring were ambulatory care services and home health care services, as well as nursing and residential care facilities.

Leisure and hospitality. Jobs could be found last month in the performing arts and spectator sports sectors, while new workers were needed by hotels, restaurants and bars.

Im surprised to see construction and manufacturing on this list. I guess even if one job is created (LOL) it counts as growth these days right?

Hey Jobless:

Most construction is happening because of new jobs COMING in the near future.....this is one reason I started posting job openings...I thought of the "construction phase" because some businesses that have job openings, HAVE to build the building first before they can begin hiring...

I was merely thinking of those who lost jobs in construction, and possibly relocate, or possibly for a short time, go to that state for a while... if that person had funds to do this or family/friends living in that particular state.

I'm glad to see the construction industry starting to slowly come back to life. That is a good indicator in my eyes of improvement in the economy.

I agree about it being an good indicator,,,slowly but surely, construction is coming back.

What amazes me is here in Florida, there are so many empty buildings....which is not a "good" sign. In other states, I've noticed .....for those who have the money...the new business owner "remodels" an existing building for the so-called new business. (some construction involved)

Guess that's better than empty buildings....

So any new construction IS a good sign anywhere, JMO.

Construction in Boston is definitely making a come back. Its been slow since 2006. There has been talk of more wind turbine projects and other green projects coming too. this will employ my husband for years if it happens. He is starting a project at logan airport soon and then moving on to some solar panel projects. cheers

Besides the new Intel research fab, Fred Meyer (Kroger) is building a new store and strip mall in Willsonville (Oregon), even though I see many empty commercial buildings. Only huge companies can get credit to build currently.
