SURVEYS SHOW THAT PEOPLE STILL RELY UPON THE PAPERS FOR A NEW JOB, BUT THE INTERNET IS NOW MORE INFLUENTIAL THAN A BEST FRIEND

Media Information

Nicholls Browning, the recruitment company that has been providing jobs and HR solutions in Brentwood since 1971 surveyed 100 people and found that three quarters of people still plan to use a newspaper to find out about vacancies when looking for their next job. Nearly a third of people would rely on a friend’s recommendation of which agency to use, but more than a third would use the Internet to find an agency.

The survey also showed that people in Essex seem to be ahead of the national average when it comes to getting wired up to the net; a staggering 70 per cent had Internet access either at home or work.

Nicholls Browning MD said: ‘Our survey shows that people use a wide variety of methods to find out which agencies to use, proving that we must make ourselves available to them by an equally wide range of options. Our own Internet site at www.nbhr.co.uk receives a huge number of hits from all over Essex every day, but the tried and tested methods of newspaper advertising appears to still be the favourite.’

The www.thisisessex.co.uk site also received a welcome boost in the survey, nearly fifty per cent of people had heard of the site, awareness figures that any website would be proud of.
