There is a popular trend now a days of going on-line to find a job.  Is this a common practice for many of you?  Is it helpful?  How often do you go on-line to find work? I personally think its a great way to find work in another state or country.  Does everyone agree?

Oh, yes, it is a perfect way to find a job in another state or abroad, but trust me, it is not easy and not very often effective if not done in the right place. For instance, we have a site in our country which is dedicated exclusively to job search. And it is quite effective because it is safe and only serious people and companies join. But we also have some which are actually made just like that and employers do not respect their interview schedule, or their initial offers etc. It really depends where you start your online job search

I'm always having in mind those tips when searching a good job site. Especially the ranking.

I once went to Home depot looking for a job.  The clerk directed me to the personnel department and rather than giving me a form to complete, I was instructed to fill out an application on their computer.  The application wasn't too bad, I would have liked to take the application home and fill it out on my own time.  I suppose it saves the company time and it can process the applications faster.  I just wish to have been given a choice between a hand written application and one on the computer.

The only benefit is putting your CV on the Internet, is getting it on job boards and employers or recruitment firms seeing it on there.

I think one of the other advantages of having your resume online is you are setting up a network of people who might be able to give you leads.  It also provides an excellent opportunity for others to review your resume and provide feedback on it.  I see no harm to putting your resume online.  What could possibly go wrong?

I find it very helpful.The effectivity of online hiring is much higher and more convenient compared to agencies. Online hiring has a much wider range of locating potential employees.
