Bournemouth, Dorset, United Kingdom, 2006/05/06 - For the online employer, reasons for turning to online listings of their jobs include an improved and streamlined process (from interview to filling the job).
One in twelve job openings these days are filled through applicant searches on the Internet. To some, that number may seem quite high. Those who watch global trends tend to respond: "Why so few?"
Online job search engines such as Search For Jobs are fast becoming the method of employment choice, not only for the interviewed but for the interviewer as well. Good reasons abound for this phenomenon.
For the applicant, some of those reasons would be ease of access to job listings around the world, the availability of far more information about the companies the applicant is researching, and a general widening of the sphere that the applicant is searching.
For the online employer, reasons for turning to online listings of their jobs include an improved and streamlined process (from interview to filling the job) and, the greatest attraction, advertising that is absolutely free.
The employer will discover a great deal of flexibility in listing jobs online. Since there is no cost, the job title can readily be listed under several different categories. Let's say, for example, that the employer has a job opening for head copywriter in the public relations section of a large company. The job opening can be filed under the category of marketing, advertising, PR, media, new media, creative, administration or even "other."
Likewise, the job hunter will enjoy the flexibility the Internet lends itself to. Not only can he check within categories for his particular bailiwick, he can readily peruse any overlapping category of interest to see if they coincide in some ways, too. And he can apply to them all with a click, updating and revising his resume to suit the needs he finds within each category and tailor his initial communication more precisely with them in mind.
