WASHINGTON — Job openings dipped in November, the latest evidence that employers remain cautious about adding new workers.

The Labor Department says employers advertised 3.25 million jobs that month, a drop of about 80,000 from October.

Openings have risen by 900,000, or 39 percent, since the recession ended. But they are still below the 4.4 million openings that were advertised in December 2007, when the recession began.
