The group, which tracks online job postings nationwide, found that there were 4 job ads for every 100 people in the local labor force in San Diego. San Diego has led the nation for the last three months, and is the first metropolitan area to hit such a high ratio of job postings to labor force. Nationally, there were 1.63 online job ads per 100 persons in the U.S. labor force, up from 1.57 jobs in May. The level of job ads nationally was up 3 percent above the previous month, although growth slowed from a 4 percent increase in May.
