Job hunting to be bigger online

On-Line Recruitment is suggesting that over the next 5 years (to 2011), the e-recruitment market will grow significantly both in scale and importance.

Indeed, some are predicting that recruitment will be close to travel – the most successful sector in terms of the online business model. A new Market Assessment report, E-Recruitment, from market intelligence providers Key Note, forecasts that by 2011 nearly 2.1 million jobs will be on offer via online recruitment websites, with a monthly average of 32.5 million unique visitors to these sites.
Something in me suggests that this is not the way it is going to be.

The idea of six degrees of separation, allied to the Long Tail may mean there are other options when it comes to recruiting - or finding a job.
