Minnesota’s job vacancies up (02/23/2006)
Things are looking up for Minnesota's jobseekers, according to results from the latest Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey released today by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) Labor Market Information office. Job vacancies in the state are up by 22 percent from one year ago to 60,954 or 5.8 job vacancies for every 10 unemployed people.

Three fourths of Minnesota's industrial sectors saw an increase in vacancies from a year ago. The health care industry continues to show strength with the greatest number of vacancies statewide and a higher-than-average vacancy rate. Retail trade and manufacturing also experienced a sizable increase in vacancies compared to last year. Occupations reporting the highest demand include:

Health care practitioners and technical; including registered nurses and licensed practical nurses

Health care support; including nursing aides and home health aides

Business and financial; including accountants and financial analysts

Management; including computer and information systems managers and sales mangers

Architecture and engineering; including industrial engineers and electrical and electronic engineering tehnicians

"Of the total job vacancies statewide, 20 percent are the result of newly created jobs," said Matt Kramer, DEED Commissioner. "This is good news for Minnesota's jobseekers and businesses and a big plus for the state's economy."

The biannual Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey began in the fourth quarter of 2000 and is the nation's longest-running survey of job opportunities. More than 10,000 employers across Minnesota were surveyed during the fourth quarter of 2005. The next Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey will be conducted during the second quarter 2006.

Major findings from the latest Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey are available online at www.deed.state.mn.us/lmi/publications/jobvacancy
