Around the world online recruitment had an ascending raise, from a market of approximately $ 300 millions in 2000 to almost 8 billion in 2005. The highest rate is owned by the United States, where 39% of the companies choose as recruitment method the internet; and “the big boys” (The Fortune 1000 companies) in a 90% proportion.
In India it can be observed an ascending trend in using the internet as a recruitment method, in 2005, 10% of the jobs being placed online, as Nedelcu Bogdan the CEO of devseeker.in, a specialized site in IT personnel recruitment, declares: “We estimate that 10-12% of the jobs are generated online, from which 75% can also be found in other channels of distribution, like newspapers or recruitment agencies with offline activity.
With the raise of internet usage it will be observed a raise of online recruitment rate, with the lost of newspapers and other ways of promoting. We expect this sector to grow and consolidate, going 10-13 percent higher in 2006”. From the jobs published on the internet the higher rate, of approximately 25-35%, is found in the IT sector. Nedelcu Bogdan explains the reason: “IT companies know very well the capacity of the internet to distribute informations to a global audience and in the same measure the tech professionals can be found here.
For example on DevSeeker.in, since it’s launch in November 2005, most of those who register for leaving their resume are experimented people with a high IT professional preparation.”
Slowly but surely, those who seek work will choose the internet, a fast and comfortable environment, which will help them in professional reorientation and development.
