Yesterday's employment numbers released by the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development, provided empirical evidence of what many in the staffing industry have been feeling anecdotally. Despite the typical "summer doldrums," there are definite signs that hiring activity is on the upswing. Although we do not expect to see a sudden surge in job creation, yesterday's report is further evidence that the local economy is bouncing back (across multiple sectors). This bodes well for continued job growth into 2011.
In terms of employment, three industry sectors are dominant in Boston: Healthcare, F.I.R.E. (Finance, Insurance and Real Estate) and Higher Education. These three sectors make up for 78.1% of the city’s total employment.
