The Help Wanted Index Rises by It's Highest Jump Ever!

Today The Conference Board of Canada released their Help Wanted Index for the month of March and it offers very promising news. It saw a jump from 10.4 per cent to 125.3 — its highest level since the group began collecting data in 2005.

The Help Wanted Index has been climbing for the past year but this jump was a clear indicator that the Canadian job market is improving.

As the site describes it; "The Conference Board of Canada’s Help-Wanted Index is an indicator of the number of new jobs advertised online. Our empirical analysis has shown that variations in the number of jobs posted online are generally followed by similar variations in employment in the ensuing months. Thus, the index can be used to predict near-term employment trends."

This comes as no surprise as our Current Jobs section has been growing in leaps and bounds. Take a look at some of our new sales or construction jobs for more details on what we are filling. If you see something of interest, please get in touch with us.
