W hen job hunting, the more leads the merrier. But is one source better than another?
According to a survey by The Conference Board, a business research organization, 38% of job-seekers who received an offer attributed their success to an Internet search.
About 27% said networking with friends and colleagues helped them land the job, and 30% cited other sources, such as employment agencies.
Newspapers received the least credit, with only 24% of job-seekers saying their offer resulted from a print classified ad search.
