October online job ads fell 0.9 per cent

The number of jobs advertised online fell 0.9 per cent in October in the tenth consecutive month of declines, according to the federal government’s Internet Vacancy Index.

The numbers, released by the Department of Employment on Wednesday, indicated a drop of 1,500 ads from the previous month and an 8.5 per cent slide in listings in the past year.

The IVI measure is based on a count of all new job ads posted on three employment websites – Seek, CareerOne and JobSearch – during the month.
