Internet has become the information highway these days, carrying tons of various information. One can find the business opportunities and job opportunities around the world on the internet. Many company websites list available jobs, and recruiters present information about job openings. Do you do job searching online some times ? How do you see it ?

Yes, you are right. Some recruiter sites may be scams. One has to be careful in choosing the right recruiter before making any commitments.

Yes, I've do job searching online but I've do this just for fun because i think i'm still young enough to find job i think I've still need the support of my parent especially now i"m still studying. But for now i think i must study hard so that my parents will be happy to what I've done in my school.

I know some people that depend on their job searching online. it is easier and more convenient for them. It is just not something i have ever done for myself. I would consider it if the opportunity came my way.

It is so difficult to hunt for a job nowadays. But there are so many ways to find one. Yes, I do online searching too. But never failed to try other means. But I think, walk in applicant is still a nice opportunity as a first hand presentation of yourself.

At the moment, I am not looking for a job, but when I am, the internet is really the best way to look, you can find everything there so easily. I think everyone should do that!

I don't believe most of things on websites .In my mind ,admins of small websites don't care about whether what they post is true or not As to big websites ,even though they are forced to check the content of their website ,sometimes they are short of people,which can lead to leak of fake information .In fact ,i have not planned to find any job yet .I am concentrating on my preparation for entrance exam for graduate.

Yes, certainly. I usually find my jobs on Internet. I usually go to the jobs website to find them. Internet is a great way to save money, to save time when I look for a job.

Yes sometimes i search job oline i find it a comfortable way to find a lot of positions available without coming to a place or another and so spending much time in many cases you just loose it without finding something of interesting.

One can find many different job options online of course. There are recruiters who are well-reputed in the business, and have very good contacts with major companies.

I see what you mean. There are many online jobs, but most of them just make very little earnings. Some people set up their own business websites to earn more.

Yes! The internet is my main source of job hunting, for me, for relatives, friends, etc. It's much nicer than reading the paper (especially when you're lookign for entry-level jobs that aren't usually listed) and it's a lot easier than going store to store and asking for paper applications and asking if places are hiring and so on. I still think that applying in person (especially if you have a referral!) has much more of a positive effect on employers (as I have heard before that they prefer when you do, because it makes you seem more dedicated and interested in the actual job). But at least on the internet, you can know where is hiring and show up in person if you feel like that's a better way to apply (I kind of do).

Hi Maezee. Yeah, that is a very good approach. Potential employers would also prefer to see the seriousness and dedication of the applicants. Going there personally has value in that sense.

I think alot of the job sites are now spamed up, like monser and craigslist and on and on. I think it is easier to get my butt out and personally get an app. fill it out there, and turn it back promptly.

It can be faster to find a job by submitting the application right there at the Company's HR department. Many people prefer that and do it that way, of course.

The internet is the easiest way to find a job, because you can send your curriculum to a lot of companies, including in other countries, what is too difficult if you prefer to go in person to deliver it. In other way, I think that the companies pay more attention to a person who has time and availability to go in person to deliver his curriculum. Other important point that we need to analyze is that sometimes the websites are outdated and the company don't receive your curriculum. Because of this, I usually send an e-mail with my curriculum and call the company to verify if they received it.

I do most of my job searching online if it is for big companies because that is usually where the application is at. If it is a company that i am unfamiliar with i would usually call and talk to someone and go to the place to make sure it is legitimate.

Many companies have their websites on the internet, where we can read and learn about the activities of the companies, and the job possibilities there.

Yes, is really i good tool to recruit people for work. In my county it is not so common, because the people don not notice that you can find a good job through the internet. But I think work by yourself is one of the most interesting things nowadays.

yes, i find job searching online saves a lot of time. i think this is the best method to search for a job. going from place to place, you can either hear "no we're not hiring, we're taking applications, or yes we're hiring" (if your lucky) about a year ago, i searched for jobs online everyday for quite sometime. i'm thankfull for the job i do have. which i found online. and i'm still with a year and a couple months later. so searching online is very effective.

A pleasant day to you Greenline, With reference to your main topic, due to the development and evolution of electronic messages, company's now a days prefer to entertain an applicant who does submit their resume via online internet. For this reason, I am also doing the same. That I am also doing a job search via online internet. So far it is good however, there are times, company's response is somehow slow since, the resume they are downloading are stored first in a data server.

Thank you for your response and for your opinion. Yes, some times it can be taking a long time to get a reply to the job application.

In present I am unemployed and Internet is the only best way for me for searching jobs. Because here are many good sites which always tell us about many good jobs in many fields. So we can choose any jobs according to our interests and fields. So I think Internet is the best way for me for searching jobs online.

I do apply to various companies posted over job posting sites such as jobstreet and the alike; it’s in a way convenient since you don’t need to go over the company to submit your copy resume. All you need is to submit it via email and wait for them to reply back.
