The recent jobs data demonstrates a trend going forward— we have a climate of those economists who are predicting stronger numbers with an even stronger need for employees to fill the thousands of vacant positions.

With a belated and anticipated jobs report due this Tuesday, the Labor Department will announce the recent unemployment rate and job creation numbers. According to a recent article appearing in The New York Times business section, the consensus expectation among economists is the addition of 185,000 jobs in September, with an unchanged unemployment rate of 7.3%. This mirrors the current job vacancies on EmploymentCrossing, which has seen an increase of more than one million jobs added this week, with more than 250,000 added at the time of writing this press release.

The economic article indicates that economists are searching for clues regarding the closely watched report, which may indicate a surprise, with those estimating a net increase of jobs ranging from 155,000 to 240,000. "This potential increase indicates that there is momentum in the job market," said Harrison Barnes, Chief Executive Officer at EmploymentCrossing.com, a job aggregation and employment site featuring domestic and global job opportunities. "The recent jobs data demonstrates a trend going forward— we have a climate of those economists who are predicting stronger numbers with an even stronger need for employees to fill the thousands of vacant positions."

A recent job search on EmploymentCrossing indicates that there are more 2.5 million job opportunities covering every industry and geographic location in the U.S. The strongest and largest opportunities exist in Healthcare jobs (469,310), Recruiting jobs (415,138), Blue-collar jobs (388,048), Managerial jobs (375,917), Sales jobs (352,278), Retail jobs (350,513), and Customer Service jobs (280,001).

"These vacant positions are an indication that the job market has stabilized—there are less claims for job benefits, and the job market is gaining traction," said Barnes. While the government shutdown caused the delay of the recent jobs numbers and unemployment data, the speculation of job gains in the private and public sector are expected to be higher than Septembers jobs' numbers that appeared in Automatic Data Processing, Inc.'s (ADP) National Employment Report, where private-sector employment increased by 166,000 in companies that employ more than 499 people on a seasonally adjusted basis. "We will continue to see an improvement in the labor market as the economy stabilizes from the government shutdown."
