It's just another indication of the state of the job market.

According to a private research group, the number of job advertisements placed online last month was down by more than a million from the number that appeared just two months earlier.

The Conference Board says it's the biggest two-month decline since the group started keeping track of online help-wanted ads in 2005.

There was a drop of just over a half million in December, followed by a similar decline in January.

The group looks at the number of jobs posted on more than 1,200 major Internet job boards, and on smaller Web sites.

Texas had the biggest overall decline in online job ads.
