      Who's Getting Hired?

      The Tulsa metro's unemployment rate continues to hover around 7.5%. That's still a couple points lower than a nationwide jobless rate.{} As we ease into a new year, people are getting hired.{} But which industries are doing better than others?The head of a human resources company says those with more education behind them are getting the first picks.{} More so now, than just five years ago.{} Tig Gilliam, CEO of Adecco, says "It's the finance and accounting skills, the IT skills, the engineering skills which greatly improve your chances of finding a job." {}It's leisure and hospitality and health care too.{} Those fields saw the biggest job growth last month.{} Also, the service sector was the leading industry for new hires in 2010.{} Restaurants and bars were top job producers and hiring by retailers increased sharply during the holidays.

      This is good news for the economy.{} Going out to eat and drink more is considered a sign that Americans are ready to spend again.
