Job Openings Rose to Five-Year High in September

There were 3.9 million job openings on the last business day of September, little changed from August, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. The hires rate (3.4%) and separations rate (3.2%) were little changed in September.

The number of job openings (not seasonally adjusted) increased over the year for total nonfarm and total private, and was little changed in government. Over the year, the number of job openings increased in several industries but decreased in nondurable goods, manufacturing and federal government. The Midwest region experienced an increase in job openings over the 12 months ending in September.
