SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Simply Hired, the largest independent job search engine with properties in 24 countries and 12 languages, today released its Simply Hired U.S. Employment Outlook for November 2015. The report analyzes Simply Hired’s comprehensive index of millions of online job listings in every occupation to provide detailed insight into national and local job trends. According to the latest findings, nationwide job listings declined 1.48% between October 2015 and November 2015. This marks the third consecutive month of decline in job listings, although job listings overall are up 9.34% from January of this year.

The Simply Hired U.S. Employment Outlook also provides comprehensive data on job openings, growth and employers by U.S. metro. The report shows that job listings fell in nearly all U.S. metros (21 of 25) in November 2015. The exceptions are Portland, OR (4.55% month-over-month increase); Orlando, FL (1.95%); Tampa - St. Petersburg, FL (1.33%); and Los Angeles, CA (0.13%).

“Jobs increased steadily and significantly for the first 8 months of 2015,” said James Beriker, President & CEO of Simply Hired. “This recent dip is likely a seasonally-driven balancing out of the labor market rather than a negative economic indicator. Job listings remain up 9.34% from January of this year with more than 4.4 million openings available across the nation.”
