That’s the third month in a row of declines — IT job ads had fallen 12 per cent in November and 5.8 per cent in October.

To be fair, December isn’t traditionally a time when companies go on massive hiring sprees, and we’d expect January to be even worse. However, the decline for IT was worse than for the overall market, where advertised vacancies on Indeed fell by 16.3 per cent.
