When it comes to modern job-hunting, nothing beats the internet
. A survey by Pew Research
has revealed that 79 percent of Americans used online resources and information during their most recent search for a job. Non-digital techniques are still relevant, however, with 66 percent of respondents saying they used connections with close friends or family
to find a job. Employment agencies and ads in print publications are losing relevance with only 32 percent of American job-seekers using them during a recent search for employment.
