There may be something to the relative numbers of job ads, but we cannot reliably evaluate the skew. Various skewers:
How many are just musical chairs?
How many are duplicates (no primary key, eh?)? How many are body shops throwing in the unqualified and advertising because they know there is high thrash?
How many are, as robert noted, marketing? (which could be farming for customers as well as farming for consultants, not to mention farming for identity theft)
How many are busywork for HR departments? How many are BS for jobs where someone is already designated but procedures must be followed?
How many are just in case the current worker might leave? Is it only an indicator of growth? How do we know there aren't a lot more stable jobs out there that aren't being advertised?
I get a dice listing every day - and I haven't looked at it for months because they are almost all the same ones over and over and over. Very few are better than the frying pan I'm already in.
