ILLINOIS -- There's good news for the unemployed. More jobs are being created. More than 200,000 help wanted ads for Illinois' jobs were posted online last month. 85% of those positions were full-time. The state's online job site,, has some 160,000 positions advertised.

Job seekers can build resumes there, but some people say all those jobs online don't do much good if someone can't use a computer. The Department of Employment Security says the information comes from the conference board which collects help wanted online data.
