The number of help-wanted ads in major U.S. newspapers and online continued to decline in July, signaling slower job growth in the months ahead, the Conference Board reported Thursday.

In the past three months, help-wanted ads in newspapers have declined nationwide, including a 17.4 percent drop in the West North Central region, according to the New York-based private research group. In July, online job ads dipped by 196,000 to just over 4.08 million.
