Job vacancies in Oregon reached their highest level this summer since the Great Recession.

The Oregon Employment Department summer 2013 job vacancies survey showed 42,883 open positions, 73 percent of which were permanent positions. More than half of the jobs were in the Portland Tri-County area (Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties).

The articles to which you refer are excerpted from different sources about different things. The Obamacare one is from a Reuters story about a National Association of Business Economics survey suggesting employers aren't cutting full-time positions (a good thing); the job openings item is from The Molalla Pioneer about an Oregon Employment Dept. study indicating there are more Oregon jobs available now (also a good thing). If you read further in the article, the Pioneer meant "since before the recession."
