What happens when you ask 1,276 job seekers how they really look for work? You get some pretty interesting answers.
Earlier this fall, I collaborated with Job-Hunt.org (a career resource and advice site) and eHarmony (a dating site planning to enter online recruiting) to reach out to two distinctive types of survey respondents:
- Active seekers: 275 respondents from Job-Hunt.org’s and JobBoardDoctor’s audience. These respondents are well-informed about career issues and online recruiting
- Random respondents: 1,001 respondents from a random sample (provided by USamp) of US residents ages 20-60. This sample is more representative of the population at large.
What did we find out?
