Positive Economic Indicator?

In looking for my own indicators that the economy is headed in a more positive direction, I've noticed one recent trend--more job postings. On the CSCA job board it seemed that we were suddenly having A LOT more postings. More employers are looking for help, both freelance and full-time, which (presumably) means their business is picking up as well. June and July had an equal number of postings, but in August we've already had that same number of postings and it's not even mid-month. I like this trend, let's keep it going!
