Help Wanted


SURVEY SAVVY

Newspapers, surprisingly, are still the top choice for job hunters. A December survey from the Conference Board found that three out of four people checked the print ads first when looking for employment. The Internet ran a close second; three out of five said they went online to search.

A majority of those who used the Internet read help-wanted ads posted online (88%), and nearly 60% submitted their rsums via the Web. A little more than a third signed up for e-mail notifications of job listings. Throughout the country, as might be expected, those preferring the Internet over the newspaper were under age 35.
