Stamford, Greenwich and Norwalk were the hot markets for the month, followed by Westport and Wilton.

David Lewis, CEO of AllCountyJobs.com, which includes FairfieldCountyJobs.com, said, "The November numbers indicate continued market stagnancy in the county. It looks like the year will finish out somewhat flat, off-set by initial strength we saw in q1 2013. The outlook therefore remains murky to neutral in terms of future regional job market growth."
