In a display that has the feel of a vital-signs monitor in some hospital ward, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a pretty healthy pulse of summer employment gains in certain industries.
It’s a statement of the obvious that jobs at vacation camps would spike in the summer — see the green line — and that marinas would see some fluctuation as well — see the bright red.
Hotels, too, show some fluctuation, though a steadier run of employment — see the dark red at the top. Fitness centers seem to hold their own year-round as well.
And the stability of museum employment in the middle — is that teal? — is not to be confused with a flat line on the heart monitor.
Museums are ever-popular

Meanwhile, here’s at least one job opportunity — sounds year-round.
