The U.S. insurance industry added 2,800 jobs in September, marking a 0.12 percent increase from where the industry stood in August. September's job growth continues the upward trend the industry has seen since March, according to the latest employment report released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The BLS figures released on Oct. 5 showed that industry employment has increased by 12,800 jobs in 2012. On a year-to-year basis, the industry, which currently has a 2.29 million-job work force, has added 11,600 jobs since September 2011. BLS also provided adjusted employment figures for August that showed the industry added 5,500 jobs between July and August. That figure is down from the 5,900 new jobs BLS had previously reported. This year’s growth comes after several years in which industry employment fell sharply for months at a time.
