Sacramento and all of California saw a surge in job vacancies advertised online in June, according to the latest monthly report released today by the Conference Board.
The board said there were 27,600 ads posted in Sacramento in June, up from 24,600 in May and 22,900 in June last year.
Sacramento, however, remained second nationwide in the number of unemployed per advertised job vacancy, with a 4.60-to-1 ratio. That trailed only Riverside's 7.96-to-1.
Statewide, there were 537,000 ads posted online last month, up significantly from 502,000 in May and 475,800 in June 2011.
Jobs advertised online nationwide rose 232,000 in June to 4.95 million.
"Online labor demand in the first half of 2012 increased by an average of 104,000 per month, but about one-third of both the states and the 100 largest metro areas are still below their pre-recession highs for labor demand," said June Shelp, vice president of the Conference Board.
