Australia's job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet surged 9.4 percent month-over-month to 129,544 in October 2020, after an upwardly revised 8.3 percent rise a month earlier. This was the sixth straight month of gains in job advertisement, as the economy reopened from coronavirus lockdowns and a resurgence in local virus cases in Victoria state was under control. "Job ads have now regained more than-three quarters of the plunge they took in March and April," said ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch. "We think Jobs Ads will need to exceed pre-pandemic levels for some time to ensure the ongoing recovery in employment and reduce labor market underutilization," she added. On an annual basis, ads fell 0.4 percent. source: Australia and New Zealand Banking Group

Australia's job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet surged 7.8 percent month-over-month to 118,424 in September 2020, after an upwardly revised 2.6 percent rise a month earlier. This was the fifth straight month of gain in job advertisement, as the economy reopened from coronavirus lockdowns and a resurgence in local virus cases in Victoria state was under control. "The question now is whether a return to pre-pandemic levels of job ads and vacancies would be enough to entrench a solid labor market recovery," said ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch. "Right now, we need to get a huge volume of people - who were until recently employed - back into the workforce, along with new entrants and those wanting to re-enter the workforce," she added. On an annual basis, ads tumbled 25 percent.
