Young people are utilising web 2.0 applications to help them land their preferred career, a new survey has found.

It was discovered that a quarter of young people would use a social networking site to receive careers advice and blogs and forums would be utilised by a third of young jobseekers.

Commenting on the need, to engage with young people chief executive of the firm Albert Ellis said that young jobseekers who are failing to seek professional careers advice are affecting businesses and the recruitment industry.

"We need to engage young people in their career choices early and in a focused way to ensure we get the right talent in the right places," he remarked.

He added that young people could be missing out on crucial career opportunities by not using professional agencies.

A recent survey by fast food giant McDonalds found over half of young jobseekers are attracted to careers that could provide the opportunity to work abroad.
