U.S. companies advertised more jobs in April than in any month in six and a half years, a possible harbinger of strong hiring in the months ahead. Employers posted nearly 4.5 million jobs, up strongly from 4.2 million in March, the Labor Department said Tuesday. It’s the largest number of job listings since September 2007. Companies have been slow to fill openings since the recession ended, so the increase in postings won’t automatically lead to more jobs.
