We have been tracking job advertisements across the three major channels being Seek, Indeed and LinkedIn since way back in 2008. The above graph shows Seek job advertisements from December 2013 to September 2019. Annually the number of jobs dip each Xmas period as businesses close and clients/candidates holiday. This week in particular, Seek's Perth jobs hit a level we have not seen for over 5 years. The unemployment rates for August were released last week and the signs were also positive for WA as the rate shifted down to a trend unemployment rate of 5.8%. Nationally the rate remained the same at 5.3%. The signs are good for WA !!!
