Traditional recruitment methods on the increase

The
majority of organisations still use traditional recruiting methods despite the
rise of the Internet, according to CIPD research.

The use of
local newspapers to advertise for managerial vacancies has increased from 47
per cent in 1999 to 69 per cent this year and the use of trade press job
adverts has increased from 52 per cent in 1999 to 62 per cent in 2001.

“Employers
are finding that when it comes to switching jobs, people still prefer to browse
at their own pace through their preferred newspaper, or trade press,” said CIPD
advisor Imogen Daniels.

She urges
recruitment websites to become more user friendly and to address the
confidentially concerns that arise around the Internet.
