Recruitment: More jobseekers turning to internet for next move

Easy access makes the internet convenient for jobhunters Motor trade jobseekers are increasingly using the internet to hunt for their next job.

Almost half (43%) of jobhunters now search for employment opportunities via the web, according to a recent survey.

A further 38% use traditional means, such as recruitment agencies and 19% prefer to apply for jobs through the post.

David Southgate, Southgate Consulting director, said: “There has been a marked increase in internet usage for career moves over the last two to three years within the sector.

“Quick and easy access to recruitment websites and listings, such as am-online, make it convenient for individuals at all levels to keep an eye on career opportunities that are relevant to their specific skill sets.

“There are a few industry leading publications which have a controlled circulation, and it may be that these publications do not reach everyone within a specific business.

Therefore, internet access is more readily available.”
