    Interesting! Is there a way to see this data going forward into 2016?

    Ps. Poor old Canberra (and Darwin)...

    It doesn't really relate to (un)employment as closely that it would make sense to look at.
    Its simply how many people are not happy with their jobs and resigned. As such now an advertisement is up for their replacement.

    New openings form very little part of these ads, mostly its a shifting of employees from one organisationto another.

    But what about the people who get made redundant because their workplace isnt busy enough and then need to find other work?

    There appears to be a correlation

    What's the point of more positions advertised if the wage trend is actually heading down? Seek isn't a terribly great for tracking actual positions advertised as there's the good old phantom roles (Whirlpool favourite) or multiple agencies advertising for the single role.
