Jobseekers should use online recruitment, expert urges
Jobseekers have been encouraged to make use of online recruitment sites as this is the method many employers are now using to fill vacancies, it has been claimed.

According to Remy Piazza, managing director of CareerBuilder Canada, six out of ten employers say that online recruitment has helped them to successfully find applicants for positions.

Many are also broadening the list of places they look for candidates.

Mr Piazza told jobseekers to "explore generalist sites, niche boards and local job boards and post your resume on as many as you feel could benefit your search".

He also suggested that they try to boost their exposure by making use of the functions many online recruitment sites offer.

Meanwhile, Paul Burgess, managing director of eploy, recently told Onrec.com that small businesses may want to consider using the internet to help them find staff as it can save them money.

"It's all about search," says a spokesperson for ClickAJob, which aggregates the UK's top boards and presents their vacancies in a single one-stop facility.

"By being able to search the internet, users get instant results from the world's biggest and most efficient database," he points out.

"As a finding tool, it's perfect for jobseekers and it's perfect for employers - anything else is like thumping through all ninety gazillion pages of the combined UK phone books by hand."
