Jobseekers are best to look online for new employment, one specialist has stated.
Online recruitment sites can offer added benefits to those seeking a new job, Michelle Brown, head of communications for Monster UK and Ireland, remarked.
Support, tips and advice are available to job searchers via such websites, she said.
Ms Brown advised jobseekers to sign up to recruitment websites as it "will greatly improve a jobseeker's chance of finding employment".
Her comments follow a recent poll by Enhance Media that discovered internet job searches have increased by 50 per cent since 2006.
More assertive, ClickAJob chief executive Yngve Traberg maintains that online job searches are far superior - unless targeting a particular job with a particular company.
"It's about time and choice," he says. "You can't physically search thousands of jobs in the newspaper every day, that's just not practical. But a good job search engine can do it in seconds.
"Short-listing your choices is no longer a headache either," he continues.
"By searching online, you get only the kind of jobs you want, with none of the chaff - all delivered to you by email if you want, the very second that new positions are posted."
Going further, Mr Traberg points out that applying online is just as quick and painless.
"And just look at the message it sends to the employer," he adds. "Without saying a word or any effort on your part, you're actually showing that you're communications savvy and in tune with the practices of modern business.
"Try and get that out of your morning newspaper," he states.
