Job hunt goes online
Many jobseekers are using online resources to find their perfect position with a new company, the latest figures have revealed.

Conducted by Enhance Media, the National Online Recruitment Audience Survey shows 80 per cent of those seeking new employment have applied for a job they found on the web.

Furthermore, nine per cent of 40,000 people questioned exclusively use the internet as a way to look for a new job. This represents a 50 per cent increase on the previous year.

Managing director of Enhance Media Tim Elkington noted the pivotal role of the internet in the labour market.

He said: "This comprehensive survey shows that for an increasing number of jobseekers, the internet is providing everything they need to find a new job.

"The results also show that more people are getting jobs and jobseekers are far more directed about where to look."

Yesterday, jobs.ac.uk said that 2008 will be the year that many people proactively search for a job.
