Management jobs in Boston increase
Posted on March 5, 2011
A new survey indicates that management jobs in Boston have increased substantially.
Memphis, Atlanta, Boston, Phoenix, and Minneapolis all had double-digit increases in managerial recruitment activity in February, according to the new CareerCast.com/JobSerf Employment Index. The February 2011 Index, which measures managerial hiring activity online, stands at 104.3, 21 points higher than it was in February 2010. Memphis, with a 19% increase in managerial hiring, was the big winner this month, followed by Atlanta (+15%), Boston (+14%), Phoenix and Minneapolis (+13%). The Midwest made the largest regional gains this month, reaching the highest level of any region in almost three years, says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com. However, the Western and Southeastern regions continue to trail behind the rest of the country. The good news is that all cities in the index improved this month, although hiring gains in Miami (+ 4%), Philadelphia and Baltimore (+3%), and Milwaukee (+2%) were minimal.
We are hopeful this is the beginning of an upward trend since per capita hiring has improved this month in all 30 cities, says Jay Martin, COO, JobSerf. The index level is also far higher than the previous corresponding months in 2009 and 2010, and is performing better than pre-recession levels.
