New Jersey adds jobs in private sector

By ,

A report Wednesday by Roseland-based ADP found that the state of New Jersey added 1,390 private sector jobs in May.

The vast majority of those jobs – 1,350 – were in the service sector, led by 450 in the professional and business services industry. Other highlights included the natural resources, mining and construction industry, which added 360 jobs, and the trade, transportation and utilities industry, which added 140. On the downside, manufacturing lost 320 jobs.

Although the state has added jobs every month this year, the overall trend was downward in recent months, according to ADP. New Jersey had previously added 2,100 private sector jobs in April and 4,690 in March.

ADP’s report was compiled in collaboration with Moody’s Analytics.
