Monster Employment Index - FEBRUARY from JANUARY

.......................................

Monster Employment Index

Rises in February from January; Year-Over-Year

Growth Continues to Remain Positive

.

.

Monster Job Growth Index

.

February 2011 Index Highlights:

.

• Annual growth rate eases to 4 percent, yet remains above year-earlier levels while Index rises 7

points (6 percent) month-over-month

• All 28 metro markets record positive annual growth in February

• Positive consumer-spending trends generate uptick in retail sector

• Public administration weighs down overall Index; sector’s annual declines slide to 25 percent,

reaching a new low in the Index

The Monster Employment Index is a monthly gauge of U.S. online job demand based on a real-time review of

millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large representative selection of corporate career Web sites

and job boards, including Monster.com®.

.

“Sustained expansionary trends in private sector hiring coupled with growing consumer confidence have led to

positive YoY growth in the Index” said Jesse Harriott, senior vice president and chief knowledge officer at Monster

Worldwide. “Although Index growth has eased since the early summer peak of 2010 due in part to a decline in

public sector activity, it has been positive year-over-year since February 2010 as employers continue to maintain a

measured approach to growth.”

.

.

Industry Year-over-year Trends:

10 of the 20 industries monitored

by the Index showed positive

annual growth trends.

.

• Utilities (up 17 percent) was amongst the top-moving sectors in February, possibly due to emergence of new

jobs across infrastructure and back-office operations as employers implement new technologies

• Retail Trade (up 15 percent) rose on a monthly basis, displaying sector recruitment trends similar to those

of the pre-recessionary period

• Professional, scientific, and technical services (up 9 percent) edged up in the Index to the same degree

as historically seen at this time of year, suggesting little change in demand conditions after accounting for

seasonal patterns

• Finance and insurance (down 8 percent) eased further indicating possible hiring stagnation for a variety of

clerical and support roles, following a more active pace of job creation in 2010

• Public administration (down 25 percent) registered the steepest annual decline, with further reduction in

government jobs at the federal and local levels
