There were 3.9 million job openings on the last business day of October, little changed from September,

the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. The hires rate (3.3 percent) and separations rate (3.1

percent) were also little changed in October. This release includes estimates of the number and rate of

job openings, hires, and separations for the nonfarm sector by industry and by geographic region.

 

Job Openings

 

There were 3.9 million job openings in October, little changed from September. The number of openings

was little changed for total private and government. The number of job openings increased in arts,

entertainment, and recreation and in the Midwest region and was little changed in the remaining

industries and regions. (See table 1.)

 

The number of job openings (not seasonally adjusted) increased over the year for total nonfarm and total

private and was little changed for government. Over the year, the number of job openings increased in

several industries but decreased in federal government. The Midwest and West regions experienced an

increase in job openings over the 12 months ending in October. (See table 7.)

 

Hires

 

There were 4.5 million hires in October, little changed from September. The number of hires was little

changed for total private and government. The number fell in professional and business services and was

little changed in the rest of the industries and in all four regions. (See table 2.)

 

Over the 12 months ending in October, the number of hires (not seasonally adjusted) changed little for

total nonfarm and total private but rose for government. The number of hires increased over the year in

state and local government and was essentially unchanged in the rest of the industries and in all four

regions. (See table 8.)
