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.”
