Default IT Jobs Trend in Australia 2010

Ok, here's some stats for IT jobs in OZ, just from checking the total number of "IT&T" jobs by major city advertised in the last 30 days on Seek.
I'll try to update this weekly and maybe even create some nice graphs at some point.

This is a very rough guide only, some jobs get advertised multiple times and others don't get onto Seek at all, the actual numbers aren't important but any significant upward or downward trend probably is:

Sydney
07th Jan 2010 - 4188
15th Jan 2010 - 4515
22nd Jan 2010 - 5314

Melbourne
07th Jan 2010 - 2245
15th Jan 2010 - 2346
22nd Jan 2010 - 2613

Brisbane
07th Jan 2010 - 935
15th Jan 2010 - 1070

Perth

So why is Perth so far behind the other big cities regards to numbers?

Is this an opportunity to exploit lack of IT investment or is there a lock less companies in Perth?

Thanks Robert - that's interesting. Looks like things are picking up. So Hobart is probably not the place to be heading if you're hoping for a job in IT.

I'm off to Brizzie in September. Hoping for a C#.NET job but am a bit worried about how long it will take to get one. I've heard some stories of people still looking after 6 months because they don't have Ozzi experience. Well ...

OK, its Friday again, time for the latest figures, I've included Canberra too now but only have two weeks of figures for them.
Cities are ordered from the best for IT jobs to the worst (If I could edit my first post I would but I guess I'll have to keep appending to the thread each week.

Here's the latest updates for the seek.com.au results for all IT jobs advertised in the last 30 days by city.

It looks like a steady climb pretty much everywhere which is fantastic news for us IT people

As mentioned before, please bear in mind the following about these figures:
  • Some Seek jobs have multiple adverts through different agencies
  • Some are advertised in all cities event though the job is only in one
  • Some may be fake or filled jobs just so that agencies can gather CVs
  • Some jobs are never even advertised on Seek

Interesting to see Sydney trending so steadily - although maybe thats due to the recruitment lull over the Xmas period.
