Healthcare Job Postings Surge in January
Health Leaders Media

Online job ads for healthcare practitioners and technical workers surged in January by 78,500 listings, and ads for healthcare support jobs also grew by 16,600 listings, as healthcare jobs led a strong first month of 2011 that saw 438,000 new job listings in the overall economy, The Conference Board reports. June Shelp, vice president at The Conference Board, called the January surge “welcome news” after relatively flat job growth during the second half of 2010, but she cautioned that it’s too early to call it a trend.
