Job listings rose year-over-year 23% and job searches rose 10% in March, CareerBuilder said. In addition, in a recent CareerBuilder survey, 31% of full-time workers said they will look for a new position as the economy improves, and 77% said they would be receptive to a new opportunity in 2011.
“We’re seeing the aggregate numbers on CareerBuilder increase at a much higher percentage rate than in the past,” said Matt Ferguson, chief executive officer of CareerBuilder. “This year, job listings in March were up more than 20% year-over-year. Last year, the increase was in the mid-single digits. Traffic increases are also stronger in 2011 as more workers return to the labor force to look for jobs and underemployed workers seek out more fulfilling opportunities.”
