LMG says job postings down in October

October saw a drop in job postings in Parry Sound District.

150 jobs were posted that month, down nearly 19% from September.

“This monthly decrease could be related to either seasonal trends or signs of a possible recession approaching or both,” states the Labour Market Group’s (LMG) October jobs report.

The number of job postings is also down about 23% compared to October 2021.

75 unique employers posted jobs in October, down from 84 last year.

The top five employers posting jobs include:

West Parry Sound Health Centre

Near North District School Board

The Home Depot – Parry Sound

Walmart – Parry Sound

Shoppers Drug Mart – Parry Sound

Healthcare and Social Assistance was the top hiring industry, followed by Retail Trade. Accommodation & Food Services rounds out the top three. Nearly 61% of the job postings in October were for full-time employment.
