SYDNEY, May 8 (Reuters) - Australian job advertisements jumped 1.4 percent to stand at levels that would normally signal solid demand for labour, even as official figures on employment continued to be soft.
A monthly survey by Australia and New Zealand Banking Group showed total job advertisements gained 1.4 percent in April, following a 0.8 percent rise in March.
Ads were 10.1 percent higher than in April last year. ANZ no longer provides a breakdown between internet job ads and those in newspapers, as the latter are now a tiny share of total ads. (Reporting by Cecile Lefort; Editing by Sam Holmes)
