May 3, 2013 – Managerial hiring remained strong in April despite weakness in other job levels, according to the CareerCast.com/JobSerf Employment Index, which measures managerial recruitment activity online. A 1.5-point drop-off from March, to 114.9, had negligible impact on an overall score that is much improved from the 101.3 point-level of this time a year ago. Memphis showed a 21 percent hiring increase, followed by New York City with a 20 percent increase and Milwaukee with an 18 percent increase in managerial hiring. San Francisco, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and Boston each saw a slight decline of four percent this month. No cities showed declines. “Technological and biological jobs have been major drivers of job growth, with Boston and San Francisco registering huge gains,” said JobSerf CEO Jay Martin, who adds that the budget sequester has provided a positive impact.
