Something I don't quite know what to make of, but there still is this Monster Index there of online job recruiting and the latest data for September out shows Pittsburgh as the single hottest market they track. See page 10 of their full release. But to repeat myself, I am unaware of any research that has looked into what that index may really mean in the economy... but it is a different look at the local job market. Honestly it's weird because other than Houston, we are first by a long shot which is hard to believe. Makes you wonder if it says more about the prevalence of web usage in recruiting across different regions than something about the state of the labor market. But worth watching I am sure.
