The Conference Board reports that online ads totaled more than 2.1 million in August, up almost 100,000 from the June numbers. Using statistics from the US Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and 1,200 major job boards they create the number of online ads per 100 participants in the labor force.
Among Midwest cities the Twin Cities ranked behind only Milwaukee.
Leading the way in ads per participants are Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Boston, San Diego, and Washington, D.C.
The report notes that, “Differences within and between regions reflect both variations in the propensity to use online technology for job searches as well as job vacancies.”
