Sales Careers Phoenix Bolstered by Strong Retail Sales

The number of sales careers Phoenix has to offer in the retail industry continues to be bolstered by increasing sales.

A recent report from the National Retail Federation found that retail sales increased by .3 percent during June, marking the 12th consecutive monthly increase. Great weather, low gas prices, and Father's Day sales all helped pushed sales higher.

"A solid year of growth in sales provides further evidence that retailers continue to lead the charge in the economic recovery," Matthew Shay, president and CEO of the NRF, said. "While spending continues to surpass expectations, sustained growth in the retail sector depends on a strong labor market."

A separate report from the U.S. Department of Commerce found that retail sales increased by .1 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis over the month and by 8.4 percent on an unadjusted basis over the year.

Here's a look at how some stores fared over the month:

Systems Engineers Jobs Tempe, Nationwide Growing

The number of systems engineers jobs Tempe has to offer is increasing along with the rest of the nation, which means those seeking IT jobs Phoenix should have an easier time finding work.

A recent report from Wanted Analytics found that the number of job openings for computer software engineers posted online increased by 12 percent between March 2010 and March 2011 to more than 56,000 openings.

There are currently about 850,000 computer software engineers throughout the nation, which means there is a ratio of one job opening for every 15 engineers. That's down from the 18 engineers for every job opening seen last year.

"Hiring demand for computer software engineers continues to show steady improvement, and the competition for top talent is fierce," Bruce Murray, CEO and president of WANTED Technologies, said in a statement. "Hiring demand for computer software engineers has recovered to within 3 percent of its four-year peak in June 2008 of 60,000 job ads."

California has the most online job openings for computer software engineers, at 14,000, which is a 34 percent increase from last year. Washington has the second-highest number of available jobs and has seen 59-percent growth.

Speech Therapy Jobs Phoenix Created by New Child Developmental Center

A new child developmental center will increase the number of speech therapy jobs Phoenix has to offer.

Earlier this year, Easter Seals Southwest Human Development opened a new Children's Developmental Center in Phoenix, which is creating new opportunities for speech therapy and other medical professionals.

The center is Arizona's first comprehensive facility aimed at serving children up to five years old who have disabilities and behavioral problems. The American Academy of Pediatrics has made it a priority to establish coordinated care as the standard.

The new center will offer services that involve both children and their family members, including:
"Every child and family is unique and deserves a one-of-a-kind plan for coordinated disabilities support," ESSHD CEO Ginger Ward said in a statement. "Our 'One Child, One Family, One Team' approach is a blended health, developmental and mental health model, and is the first-of-its-kind Arizona."

Terrence Matteo, Ph.D., will serve as Director of the Children's Developmental Center, while Trudi Norman-Murch, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, will serve as co-director of services for children with disabilities. The project is being funded in part by a three-year, $500,000 grant from the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.
