Amid a relatively weak U.S. jobs report, the number of non-bank mortgage jobs retreated for the third consecutive month.

As of year-end 2017, nonfarm payroll employment stood at 147.380 million people, according to data reported Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

U.S. employers added 148,000 jobs compared to the prior month, plunging from a upwardly revised 252,000 increase in nonfarm employment during November.
