Online job availability rises
Online job availability rose in the month of August after the traditionally slow months of June and July.

The Monster Employment Index found internet vacancies rose by three points last month as 50 per cent of industries and 16 out of 23 occupation categories tracked by the survey reported vacancy increases, onrec.com reports.

Executive vice president of global sales and customer development at Monster Worldwide Steve Pogorzelski stated that the index shows a modest increase in online job availability compared to figures from previous years.

He added that the worries surrounding the domestic housing sector have impacted on the number of recruitments.

"The Index's findings suggest that employers are recruiting more cautiously amid general uncertainties," he remarked.

Administration, the arts and information were among the sectors that registered the highest increases for the month.

Last month, an increased use of online job boards was noted by the National Online Recruitment Agency Survey.
