Hiring across the U.S. was 26 percent higher in November than a year earlier, the LinkedIn report shows.
Seasonally adjusted hiring was 2.2 percent lower than in October.
U.S. employers hired more people in November than last year, but fewer than in October of this year, according to the LinkedIn Workforce Report.
Hiring across the U.S. was 26 percent higher last month than a year earlier, the data showed. The seasonally adjusted hiring figure was 2.2 percent lower than in October. Still, hiring has stayed consistently strong this year, LinkedIn says. Year to date, U.S. hiring has been 10.4 percent higher in 2017 than in 2016.
The sectors with the biggest year-over-year increases were oil and energy, up 30 percent, manufacturing and industrial, 15.7percent higher, and aerospace, automotive and transportation, which is up 13.7 percent. The industries with the least growth in 2017 were media and communications, health care and pharmaceuticals and telecommunications.
LinkedIn's report is compiled from its 143 million user profiles in the U.S., 20,000 company profiles and 3 million monthly job postings.
The Labor Department will release its closely watched monthly employment data on Friday. On Wednesday, ADP and Moody's Analytics said private payrolls increased by 190,000 in November, ahead of analyst expectations but less than the 235,000 in October.

I’m sure it’s just from the residual effects of the jug-eared, limp-wristed treasonous POS “booming” economy, NOT anything President Trump has done...
LOL. Not at GE. Laying off faster than we can keep up. More coming in 2018....12k people will lose their jobs because that $hithead Immelt was too busy feeding at the Obama trough to do a descent job. He & the GE BOD should be investigated at the very least & in jail if needed
Last time I checked, incompetence and stupidity were not illegal.

It is pretty amazing — 8 years of bad news and it was always “Bush’s fault”.
Now Obama is out of office, Trump is making changes, good stuff is happening, and Obama says, “I deserve the credit for that.”
but notice that CNBC just couldn’t resist trying to temper the good news for Trumponomics with the meaningless, context-free “but less than in THIS October”.]
“Last time I checked, incompetence and stupidity were not illegal.”
yeah, not NEAR enough prison space ...
These were the jobs that Obama insisted weren’t coming back. Now, he seems to be taking credit for them.
