65,000-Plus New York Jobs on EmploymentCrossing; Department of Labor Reports Show Slight Increase in the State's Job Count

July 23, 2008   |  PDF version  PDF version

Pasadena, CA — EmploymentCrossing (www.employmentcrossing.com) now lists more than 65,000 jobs in New York. According to the state labor department’s latest report, New York’s private sector employment increased over the month by 4,200, the first-ever increase in the last five months. However, the overall unemployment rate in the state also increased from 5.2% in May to 5.3% in June, its highest level since December 2004.

''The New York State economy is showing a split personality. Although the total job count increased in the state, the total unemployment rate also increased due to layoffs in the financial sector,'' says Harrison Barnes, CEO and founder of EmploymentCrossing.

EmploymentCrossing currently has 65,000-plus jobs in New York in its database. The website aims to support anxious job seekers struggling in a shrinking job market and to provide them with every possible resource to find jobs in their respective industries.

''EmploymentCrossing has doubled its efforts to update job seekers with every job opening in New York as soon as it becomes available,'' adds Barnes. ''In fact, we are different than other job boards in the sense that we do not charge employers to post jobs, which gives job seekers more options. We have a dedicated team of hundreds of researchers who look through every possible resource to find each and every job, even the hidden ones.''

New York’s labor department also reports that the total number of jobs in New York State has increased by 30,100 since June 2007. The industries with the largest job gains were education and health services, government, leisure and hospitality, and professional and business services, among others. Meanwhile, the industries that reported the most job cuts were manufacturing, finance, construction, and trade, transportation, and utilities.

On EmploymentCrossing the industries offering the greatest numbers of jobs in New York State are:
  • Information technology (8,750 jobs)
  • Healthcare (8,360 jobs)
  • Accounting (5,089 jobs)
  • Engineering (4,078 jobs)
  • Administrative (3,772 jobs)
  • Finance (3,480 jobs)
  • Marketing (2,983 jobs)
  • Education (1,675 jobs)
  • Human resources (1,460 jobs)
  • Customer service (1,392 jobs)
  • Hospitality (1,088 jobs)
''We are trying our best to locate every possible job from employer websites, other job boards, newspaper classifieds, and other sources to be able to help job seekers in every possible way,'' says Barnes.

EmploymentCrossing updates its website with the most recent jobs. The job board has more than 2 million active jobs in its database in the second week of July, and that number is expected to get an additional boost in a few days.
