Norwalk, CT. [August 7, 2012] It is with great pleasure that AllCountyJobs.com (www.AllCountyJobs.com) announces their Fairfield County Job Market report for July 2012. The report tracks the overall activity on FairfieldCountyJobs.com (www.FairfieldCountyJobs.com), the area’s leading regional job board with over 100,000 unique visitors clicking through close to 500,000 times per month to view details on open jobs in the area. FairfieldCountyJobs.com is also home to a resume database with over 40,000 resumes from area job seekers, allowing employers to source candidates directly on its website.
Report highlights for July 2012:
• Posting volume was up 2% over June, but atypical for July, which tends to be one of the weaker months of the year for job posting activity.
• July 2012 was the strongest July for new job postings since 2008, up a whopping 26% over July 2011.
• The highest volume of positions posted this past month was for roles in Marketing and Sales.
• Greenwich and Stamford were the hot markets.
David Lewis, CEO of AllCountyJobs.com, commented, “Seeing two consecutive months of job posting growth is noteworthy since 2008. Seeing them occur in the summer months when hiring tends to soften significantly is remarkable.” Lewis added, “While factors like traffic and cost of living in Fairfield County will continue to adversely impact the supply of candidates for open jobs at the lower levels, activity of this nature given these numbers shows that the market has heated up.”
