Australian job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet declined 8.4 percent month-over-month in May 2019, swinging from an upwardly revised 0.2 percent gain in April. It was the largest monthly fall since January 2010. Still, a rise in postings after a national election was seen as suggesting some potential for recovery. “Job ads were down sharply in May, which, at face value points to a sharp slowing in employment growth,” said ANZ’s head of Australian economics, David Plank. The proximity of Easter and ANZAC Day holidays in late April and caution ahead of the May 18 election may have delayed job postings, he added. “Consistent with this explanation, postings in the last week of May (i.e. after the election) were considerably higher than in the previous four weeks. If the last week of May is indicative, then job ads will rebound strongly in June." On an annual basis, job advertisements plunged 14.9 percent. Job Advertisements in Australia averaged 142245.11 from 1999 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 258084.63 in April of 2008 and a record low of 69799 in July of 1999.
