Online advertised job vacancies continue decline

Online advertised job vacancies in February decreased in all 50 states, continuing a national two-year decline, according to the monthly Help Wanted Online report released March 8 by The Conference Board. The nationwide HWOL Supply/Demand rate – a calculation of the number of unemployed workers per each online ad—stood at 1.56 in January (the latest month for which unemployment figures were available). Massachusetts and Vermont were two of the nine states in which there the number of online advertised job vacancies in January was greater than the number of unemployed.
