Job advertisements in Australia declined by 0.5 percent month-over-month but remained at a strong level of 240,000 in September 2022, implying tightness in the labor market is not yet letting up and a further fall in unemployment is likely. "The fact that ANZ Job Ads and other leading indicators of Australia’s labor market are still so strong suggests the RBA may have to take the cash rate further into restrictive territory than we currently expect to slow demand growth," said ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch. "As such, our expectation of solid employment growth pushing unemployment below 3% by early next year is unchanged." On an annual basis, job ads jumped 22.3 percent, and were 56.5 percent above their pre-pandemic level. source: Australia and New Zealand Banking Group
