Good news on the jobs front

Two bits of good news in the last 4 days.  First the January jobs report was the best since April, with the economy notching a net of 243k new positions.  Unemployment fell to 8.3 percent, the lowest since February 2009.  Sectors showing the largest gains: health services, professional and business services, and manufacturing.  Construction is still flat.  The other bit of good news: job postings from employers are up.
