More than 200,000 jobs listed in Illinois in Jan.

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Illinois Department of Employment Security says employers in the state advertised more than 208,400 jobs online in January.

That figure is down from 215,000 in December. But department Director Jay Rowell on Tuesday called the January number evidence that good-paying jobs are abundant in Illinois.

The state has one of the country's highest unemployment rates. The figure was 8.6 percent in December, the most recent month available.

The department said the job with the single largest number of openings listed was truck driver. More than 7,000 positions were listed.

Other jobs with large numbers of listings included registered nurses, retail sales people, marketing managers and retail supervisors.

More than half of the listings were on the state's Illinoisjoblink.com site.
