Job openings in US – Highest in more than six years

The number of job openings in the U.S. recently hit the highest level in more than six years, a trend that could precede faster employment growth in coming months, according to a Tuesday analyst note.

There were 4.17 million job openings in February -– the most since January 2008 — up 4% from a year earlier, the U.S. Labor Department reported. Openings in the private sector rose 5% over the year, while government openings declined. “Typically openings precede payroll gains,” analysts at Stone & McCarthy Research Associates wrote in a note.
