Physician recruiting firm LocumTenens.com, operator of the largest job board for the locum tenens industry, announces the launch of the LocumTenens.com Online Job Index. The index includes data collected by LocumTenens.com since January 2007 and is a broad quarterly analysis of demand for locum tenens jobs based on the total number of active job postings at http://www.LocumTenens.com.
Jobs are posted to LocumTenens.com by healthcare facilities and locum tenens agencies nationwide. The index combines data from job postings for locum tenens positions and those that will consider either locum tenens or permanent.
LocumTenens.com's inaugural online job index shows impressive growth through 2007 and the first two quarters of 2008, remaining mostly flat through the second quarter of 2009, before showing significant decline in the third quarter of 2009. The index's third quarter 2009 decline of 27 points (a 19% decline) is still 15% above the index's baseline set in first quarter 2007.
"LocumTenens.com has always served as the leading job board for the locum tenens industry," said R. Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com. "The purpose of this job index is to use the data generated by our website to provide a resource for predicting locum tenens staffing trends."
LocumTenens.com will release online job index reports quarterly.
