    Job openings rise sharply to most in 2 years - USATODAY.com


    Employers posted a sharp increase in job openings in October.
    The Labor Department said Tuesday that businesses and government advertised nearly 3.4 million jobs at the end of October, up about 12% from the previous month. That reverses two months of declines and is the highest total since August 2008, just before the financial crisis intensified.



    Overall, the number of advertised jobs has increased about 1 million, or 44%, since the low point of July 2009, a month after the recession ended. But openings are still far below the 4.4 million advertised in December in 2007, when the recession began.

    Exactly. There's more incentive to stay on UE.
