LMG says job postings down in October

October saw a drop in job postings in Nipissing District. 

605 jobs were posted that month, down just over 10% from September.

“This month-over-month drop is likely attributed to a combination of seasonal trending and indications of an upcoming recession,” states the Labour Market Group’s (LMG) October jobs report.

However, the number of job postings is up slightly compared to October 2021, by just over 6%.
