A new job index from Diversified Management Resources, a Boston-based human resources consulting firm, shows that total count of mutual fund industry job postings online was flat for the month of August.

The new index, which will be published on the first of every month going forward, is meant to show the percentage change in the median number of postings at corporate and career Web sites for the prior month. In August, the median job count was 15,301, an insignificant change versus July, officials said.

California, Massachusetts and New York continued to lead in job postings, accounting for 14.8%, 11.3% and 9.7%, respectively, they said.
