Job seeker numbers rise

12:16 pm on 18 April 2011

Seek says 90,000 more job applications were registered on its website in the first three months of this year, compared to the same period last year.

The jobs website says most applicants cited job dissatisfaction as the main reason for looking for a new position.

Seek says the absence of pay rises, increased tasks and responsibilities in roles and a general feeling of being unappreciated are the main drivers for looking for new employment opportunities.
