Tasmania is closing in on 250,000 jobs after gaining another 100 in July.
The improvement took the state to a record 249,700 jobs after 10 straight months of growth.
The news was not all good in July, with full-time jobs down by 100, Australian Bureau of Statistics trend terms figures showed.
It was a second consecutive small decline in full-time work following a run of strong growth.
Full-time jobs held by males increased by 100, but females employed full-time decreased by 200.
The number of formally unemployed Tasmanians increased by 200 to 16,600 - the most since May 2016 - as more people started actively looking for work.
Tasmanian Treasurer Peter Gutwein said: “Almost a quarter of a million Tasmanians are now employed, confirming our long-term plan is delivering and getting more Tasmanians into the workforce.”
“Importantly, the participation rate in Tasmania has also grown to 61.5 per cent, an increase from last month and the highest level in nearly four years.
“This reflects the increased confidence that Tasmanians now have when looking for work as businesses take advantage of our strong economy and favourable business conditions.”
He said the ABS figures showed 14,700 jobs had been created since the state government was elected in 2014 and it would “continue to put in place the right economic conditions to create even more jobs for Tasmanians”.
The state unemployment rate was steady at 6.2 per cent.
