Job openings rose nearly eight percent, to 8.1 million in March, the most on records dating back to December 2000, the government said. Despite that figure, overall hiring that month rose less than four percent to 6 million. The hiring number is a gross figure, while the government’s jobs report — which said 770,000 jobs were added in March — uses a net total.
