Job-search methods on-line
November 21, 2002
Among workers using the Internet to look for a job during the first nine months of 2001, the most common jobsearch methods were reading on-line ads or job listings (92.2 percent of Internet jobseekers) and researching information on potential employers (68.5 percent).
The least common methods used were posting a resume on a job listing service (37.4 percent) and posting a resume on a personal website (4.8 percent).
This pattern of Internet jobsearch was essentially the same regardless of demographic characteristics, occupation, or industry.
