The Workforce Intelligence Network for Southeast Michigan has released its second quarter results for 2014 employer job demand measured through online postings. The results, according to WIN, mark a time of stability for employment and the labor force.
Job demand increased by almost 50 percent, according to online job postings, compared with this quarter last year (72,912 in 2013; 106,927 in 2014). However, compared with the first quarter of 2014, the number of postings decreased by 18,219 (125,146 in the first quarter; 106,927 in the second quarter). Despite that drop, the 2014 second quarter results have exceeded average posting activity from 2011 to early 2013, WIN said.
