The majority of job placements were secured by using online recruitment sources than by responding to an advert in the printed press or visiting a recruitment agency in person, according to new research.
It was established that the number of jobs placed via online routes grew in absolute terms by 19 per cent, compared to a 15 per cent and 21 per cent respective fall for the use of agencies and print advertising.
This discovery may alert university leavers to the growing job opportunities that can be found online as they search for recruitment in the competitive graduate sector.
Xenios Thrasyvoulou, founder and chief executive of PeoplePerHour.com who conducted the research, said: "The benefits of hiring online are clear.
"Whether the recession is over or not, employers are waking up to the realisation that they can find, hire and manage great talent online for a fraction of the cost and without the burden and red tape associated with traditional hiring."
