U.S. online job ads fell by 56,800 in January to a total of about 5.2 million; growth in online jobs ads has dropped over the last three years, according to The Conference Board’s report on online jobs ads released today.
“Employers still seem hesitant to expand their workforce,” said June Shelp, vice president of The Conference Board. “The number of advertised vacancies remains high at about 5 million per month, but increases in ads have significantly dropped off over the past three years, declining from an average of more than 57,000 per month in 2011 to more than 45,000 in 2012 and down to only more than 26,000 in 2013.”
In January, the flat growth for many professional workers contrasted with the increasing demand for service workers, where there were more unemployed workers.
