U.S. online job ads rose by 204,300 in April for a total of about 5.1 million, according to The Conference Board’s report on online jobs ads released today. The gain offsets earlier losses, leaving labor demand flat in 2013.
“For many workers looking for a new job, 2013 has been somewhat disappointing with the number of advertised vacancies in April largely unchanged from January,” said June Shelp, vice president at The Conference Board. “The 204,000 rise in April is a good sign, but the question is: Will the improvement hold next month and will employers begin to add workers instead of just replacing those who leave?”
