Two new reports bring good news for people looking for jobs; the market may be improving.

According to the payroll company ADP, companies added 206,000 non-farm private sector jobs in November, above analyst expectations.

A separate report says layoffs this month dropped 13 percent from a year ago.

However, consulting firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas says total cuts for 2011 have already surpassed last year's total.
