Adding div dynamically using button click in JavaScript / jQuery

How do I dynamically add div on button click in JavaScript/jQuery?
I want all the formatting of div having class "listing listing_ad job".

This is my code which I tried out, using jQuery.



$('#btnAddtoList').click(function(){
var newDiv = $('<div class="listing listing_ad job"><h4><a>Some text</a></h4> </div>');
//newDiv.style.background = "#000";
document.body.appendChild(newDiv);
});

.listing {
border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;
float: left;
padding: 0 0 5px;
position: relative;
width: 559px;
}

.listing:hover {
background: #f5f5f5 none repeat scroll 0 0;
border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;
cursor: wait;
}

a:hover {
color: #ff5050;
}

.subtitle {
width: 430px;
font-weight: normal;
font-size: 12px;
font-family: Arial;
color: #7f7f7f;
}

.info {
float: left;
margin: 10px 15px 5px;
min-width: 500px;

clear: both;
color: #7f7f7f;
margin: 15px 44px 15px 0;
overflow: hidden;
}

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<button id="btnAddtoList">
Add to list
</button>

<div class="listing listing_ad job">
<h4>
<a>

</a>
</h4>
<div class="subtitle">
Lahore, Punjab
</div>
<div class="info">
This is Info / Description.
</div>
</div>

Answer

Yes, you can - by added jQuery to the script of the document, and wrpping the code in document.ready

$(function() {
    $('#btnAddtoList').click(function(){
        var newDiv = $('<div class="listing listing_ad job"><h4><a>Some text</a></h4> </div>');
      //newDiv.style.background = "#000";
       $('body').append(newDiv);
    });
});
