Both total and new online job listings peaked in April 2007. Things chug along at a fairly even rate up through September 2008, when Lehman Brothers failed. If you look at the new job listings, you can see after that...the bottom drops out. We hit a trough in new job listings in March 2009, with 1.7 million new postings. Then in September, there's another 1.7 million posting trough. (The nadir of total job postings was actually in May 2009, at 2.7 million.) Since then, it's been a more-or-less steady climb upward in terms of new (and total) online job listings.

"The monthly increase for the last 2 months (December and January) averaged 93,000/month, giving hope that labor demand will continue to improve," said June Shelp, Vice President at The Conference Board. Overall labor demand has grown by over 1.6 million since the recession's low point in April 2009. The current monthly level of labor demand of about 4.4 million is in line with the pre-recession high in 2007 and reflects a healthy level of turnover/churning in the U.S. labor market, which is good news for the unemployed and job changers.

It took awhile for the new majorities in the House and Senate to really start to have an impact. Working diligently from January 2007 forward, they finally created their perfect world.
Place an ad for a mid level position and see the kind of resumes you get. That will tell you all you need to know about the employment picture.
Really makes you wonder just how good it could get if BOTH houses of congress go Conservative, doesn't it.
