Help Wanted Advertising

Help Wanted Advertising

An advertisement in a newspaper for a job. The help wanted section of a newspaper is divided according to type of job. For example, an ad for receptionist at a dental practice may be placed in administrative jobs, while an ad for a dental assistant may be in health care. The amount of help wanted advertising is a leading indicator of the future job market. A large number of ads in the help wanted section indicates that jobs are being created, while a small number indicates the opposite.
