The Conference Board−Lightcast Help Wanted OnLine Index of jobs ads rose in June to a reading of 124.8 (July 2018=100) from an upwardly revised reading of 124.4 in May.

The 0.3 percent increase between June and May followed a 2.8% increase between May and April. However, the index remains down 10.5% from one year ago.

The index measures the change in advertised online job vacancies over time, reflecting monthly trends in employment opportunities across the US. The Conference Board produces the index in collaboration with Lightcast, a labor market data and analysis provider. The ads are collected in real time from more than 50,000 online job domains.
