Jobseekers are optimistic despite the worries over the state of the economy, a new survey has revealed.
A poll by the Hotonline Network discovered that 84 per cent of job hunters believe they will be as likely to find a new job in 2008 as they were in 2007, Online Recruitment reports.
More money is the biggest motivator for jobseekers, with 31 per cent looking for a bigger paycheque, while 17 per cent desire quicker career progression.
Andy Baker, group director of the Hotonline Network's parent company Trinity Mirror, stated that job hunters are "confident" about their prospects in 2008.
"We experienced a 21 per cent increase in the number of job vacancies posted across our network of specialist sites between December and February, showing that the online market remains strong," he said.
This follows findings from a poll by The Credit Show last week that showed many small to medium-sized enterprises are optimistic about business in the year ahead.
