Monster Employment Index Rises to Record Level in November

The Monster Employment Index rose 3 points to its highest level of 175 in November, demonstrating surge in U.S. online recruitment activity as employers increased their year-end and holiday season hiring efforts. The Index is now showing year-over-year growth of 26 points. 

On a year-over-year basis, the Monster Employment Index is now showing growth of 17.4% – the Index’s lowest annual growth rate since its inception in 2003.

The overall Index rose last month primarily due to increased online recruitment activity in industries and occupations closely related to the holiday season, as employers in the transportation, shipping and warehousing industries began adjusting staffing levels.

  • Online demand for IT professionals in the high tech industry and alternative energy researchers also remained elevated. 

  • Online job availability in life, physical, and social science occupations rises for fourth consecutive month amid higher demand for researchers and scientists

  • Recruitment in real estate, rental and leasing industry retracts as housing sector slowdown continues, also contributing to reduced online job availability for installation, maintenance, and repair workers

  • Online demand for workers in Northeast region extends promising growth trend while opportunities in recently booming Mountain region dip
