Australian job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet fell 1.7 percent month-over-month in March 2019, the fifth consecutive month of decline, following a downwardly revised 0.8 percent drop in February. On an annual basis, job advertisements decreased 6 percent. “The signal coming from ANZ Job Ads is in complete contrast to that coming from job vacancies, which continue to reach record highs. We think the divergence may reflect changes in the way firms search for employees, with more possibly directing job seekers to their own websites rather than advertising broadly for every position. If this is the case, then the divergence reflects a structural shift in ANZ Job Ads rather than signalling a weaker job market. Recent strength in business conditions and job vacancies suggest that the labour market will remain resilient despite weaker job ads.”, ANZ’s head of Australian Economics, David Plank, commented. Job Advertisements in Australia averaged 142101.71 from 1999 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 258084 in April of 2008 and a record low of 69799 in July of 1999.
