Job growth is slow but jobs are being created in Illinois. That’s the takeaway from the latest numbers from the Illinois Department of Employment Security. Bob Gough says the jobless rate dropped month to month but the state can’t get to the job creation levels of the rest of county. And inside the state, parts of Illinois are doing better than others.

If you were looking for employment you had the best luck landing a job in transportation, education, health services and government.
