San Diego, California.- There were 3.6 million job openings on the last business day of December, little changed from November, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. The hires rate (3.1 percent) and separations rate (3.0 percent) also were little changed in December.

This release includes estimates of the number and rate of job openings, hires, and separations for the nonfarm sector by industry and by geographic region.

Job Openings

The number of job openings in December was 3.6 million, little changed from November. The number of openings decreased in retail trade and was little changed in all remaining industries and in all four regions in December.
