The annual National Online Recruitment Audience Survey (NORAS) surveyed over 50,000 online jobseekers. The survey shows that one in seven jobseekers exclusively use the internet to look for jobs, a figure up from one in 11 a year ago and more than double the figure of one in 16 in 2007.

The survey also shows that  a quarter of  online jobseekers had obtained a job that they searched for, found and applied to online.

Meanwhile 10% said that they have used a smart phone or BlackBerry to look for a job.

Giles Guest, managing director of Enhance Media – the online recruitment research and strategy company that produces NORAS, says: “NORAS 2009 shows that the Internet is becoming an increasingly important and dominant channel in recruitment.

“The year-on-year results also show that the downturn is accelerating the move towards online hiring as companies look to save costs wherever possible during the recruitment cycle.”

Online would be where I'd search though I'd be limited not being in UK.

Me too to be honest in the "day and age" (to quote The Killers. Every job advertised in the Job Centre is online anyway on their website so the figure doesn't surprise me in the least.

Online is where it's at when it comes to job hunting. I would and have occasionally called an employer up randomly to see if they were hiring but other than this I'd always do my job search online I think.

I've only ever used online resources to search for jobs, such as the job center website. It's much more convenient because you can refine your search so it only shows jobs that match your criteria rather than having to look through pages and pages for only a few possibilities.

At least the job centre will have GENUINE vacancies.  BUT have you noticed that the agencies are just clogging up the Job centre website  as well as Total Jobs etc.

I still think it helps yo get yourself out there when job hunitng. Not least to go to job agencies to get other people looking for jobs for you. Often some positions may be filled by the time they are posted online anyway such is the deamdn for work at the moment so it pays to cover all based, not just the internet.
