CHICAGO, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Employment firm CareerBuilder said Thursday there are jobs out there in the U.S. economy, but it helps to know where to look.

"In addition to fields like technology and healthcare that have consistently performed well in a troubled economy, it's encouraging to see improvement in areas like manufacturing," said Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's chief executive officer.

"Jobs are being created, but not yet in volumes needed to bring down the unemployment rate," Ferguson said.

In a survey of 575 laid-off workers conducted by the firm at the end of September, more than a third of respondents indicated they had found a new job within three months.

For those still looking, CareerBuilder said human resource listings are up 33 percent from a year ago, while manufacturing job openings listed are up 27 percent. Healthcare listings have risen 11 percent, while information technology job listings are up 39 percent.

Sales and customer service listings are also up, 21 percent and 15 percent, respectively, CareerBuilder said.

CareerBuilder said entry-level job listings are up 46 percent from a year ago, while managerial listings were up 27 percent.
