Retail Job Conditions 2012 (Graphic: Business Wire)

With Black Friday behind us,®, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), celebrates Cyber Monday with its Retail Industry Report, a snapshot of online job postings from establishments selling retail goods, which indicates ten percent postings growth over the past year, as employers ramp-up hiring activity during the holiday season.

“While the economy is clearly in recovery mode, the past few months have shown signs of improved consumer confidence,” says Charles Purdy, senior editor and career advice expert for “A stronger retail industry means more temporary holiday-season retail opportunities for job seekers. This is good news because a temporary opportunity can be a great resume builder, teach new skills, and provide networking opportunities. Plus, it can be a step to a full-time, permanent position: though a holiday-season job may end in January, that experience with the company can open the door when a new opportunity arises in the future.”

According to projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the retail industry (including food services and drinking establishments) will add nearly 1.8 million jobs over the next decade. Monster data shows that there is a surplus of interested and qualified candidates for most retail roles, including retail, store management, and customer service. The pockets of talent appear to be located across the nation, with high volumes of relevant resumes found in California, Texas, Florida and New York, where populations are stronger and retail commerce is popular.
