Continued Rebound in Professional Employment
The department Careers Survey for the calendar year 2012 includes 99 positions listings, up from the 55 listings in 2011. The uptick was first noted in the mid-year data and a solid gain is now evident. The number of listings matches the total for 2010, then in decline from 144 in 2009, and 164 in 2008. Prior to the recent decline, the number of listings has historically ranged from about 160 to 200 per year. Although further gains are anticipated, the number of permanent, full-time listings may not reach pre-2009 numbers due to an increase in temporary and contractual positions listings.
