As a category, visits to business and finance employment and training sites went down 2 percent from this time last year. This decrease may be a direct result of the drop in the unemployment rate, the company said.

Hitwise ( www.hitwise.com ) is a privately held company headquartered in New York City, and it operates in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
