Mediabistro’s Jobs Report

MediaBistro published this week its first jobs report, compiled from its job board.  There are some categories that reported growth: PR, marketing and digital/online.  The areas with the biggest declines were television, teaching and magazines. Another highlight is that in 2007 the top 10 posters on the board accounted for 19% of the jobs; in 2009 they accounted for only 8%.  And, says the report, competition for jobs is fierce: many jobs getting hundreds of applications. In fact, a quarter of all jobs had more than 100 applications submitted, while the average was 81 applications per job. The greatest number of applications for a single job was 1,309.
