U.S. advertising employment rose by 2,900 jobs in November

U.S. internet media employment—the BLS classification of “internet publishing and broadcasting and web search portals”—rose by 2,500 jobs in October. That marked a turnaround from a drop of 4,900 jobs in September.

BLS revised the September figure from the preliminary loss of 5,100 jobs it reported a month ago.

The surprising September pullback was the sharpest monthly job loss on record for internet media ventures. The previous biggest monthly drop—a loss of 3,300 jobs—came in August 2001 amid the bursting of the dot-com bubble.

Internet media employment stood at 315,000 jobs in October, below its all-time high of 317,400 jobs in August 2021. 
As with ad agencies, internet media staffing is reported with a one-month delay.
