Immediately after the 1st Presidential Debate 2012, US job listings increased by 1,400,000 new jobs.


Most of the new jobs are in IT, Engineering, and non-seasonal Sales. What stimulated this increase to a total of 5,000,000 current open jobs in America, a number not seen since 2008?

    Thanks very much. The new jobs indicated by the govt report for September certainly do not match the number of new advertized job listings in early October. Political campaigns often look at jobs lost or gained, without looking at the net change.

    The number is correct. If employers, job-advertizing sources & trending professionals I consult for figures lie, then it's actionable FRAUD.

    If job-advertizing sources & trending professionals I consult for figures lie, then it's actionable FRAUD. I believe my numbers - major employers confirm when called. Many people are not trained for the jobs and that is not employers' fault.

    Incorrect. I access the number of ADVERTIZED job openings daily. It has nothing to do with BLS.
