Jobs website SEEK sees surge in applications

10:21 am on 9 March 2012

Jobs website SEEK says applications through its site surged in February.

The site's new job advertisement index rose 1.6% in the month and is now 2.8% higher than this time last year.

While new listings increased, applications for the roles grew at a faster rate, resulting in a significant decrease in the SEEK Employment Index.

The index measures the ratio of new job ads placed on the website to the number of applications received for those jobs.
