Rejoice, Vacancies Are Up

The DEEWR Skilled Vacancy Index (SVI), which monitored jobs advertised on newspapers, increased by 2.4% in November 2009. This is the seventh consecutive month the index has moved up. 

Vacancies in the Building and Engineering Professionals sector rose by 7.8%, followed by Metal Trades (up by 6.2%), Construction Trades (up by 4.4%), and Printing Trades (up by 3.8%).


What’s encouraging, considering we are heading into the holiday season, is the fact Internet job vacancies are also up.
