Minneapolis Job Market Flat

March 3, 2010

LinkUp’s February Jobs Report Shows Modest Gains in Job Listings on Corporate Websites.

Minneapolis, MN – February’s jobs report from the Department of Labor is scheduled to be released later this week and based on data released this morning by LinkUp, Friday’s report will show that the job market was essentially flat in February, making only modest gains in job growth.

LinkUp, a job search engine that indexes jobs from over 20,000 company websites throughout the U.S., reported that new job listings on company websites rose by 10,201 (2%) from January. Total job listings on company websites in LinkUp’s job search engine increased by 7,740 (1%). While the slight increase is certainly welcome news in an otherwise painfully slow and rocky recovery, February’s job gains pale in comparison to January’s blistering gains in new and total job listings of 69,082 (18%) and 34,525 (4%) respectively. January’s strong LinkUp numbers may have been strong enough to indicate solid job gains across the nation last month.
