Job Search Continues to Thrive in the Online World


Job search sites have continued to be a hotspot for job seekers. During the recent recession, job search sites were one of the only services to actually see an increase in activity, as recent grads and recent layoffs drove unemployment rates higher. CareerBuilder, though declining slightly in overall usage, still ranks number one amongst all career service sites. Yahoo! Hotjobs, however, made significant gains from June 2008 to June 2009, and has the potential to vie for the number one spot.

Customer service and Warehouse positions were the must sought after and searched for, with Security rounding out the top 10.
