SURVEY

Internet changes job-seeking habits

SLOVAK internet users are turning away from newspapers for their job searches, and they are looking for new jobs even when they already have one.
These are some outcomes of surveys on the habits and preferences of the Slovak internet community conducted by TNS SK and Mr. Think for the LMC company in August. The surveys polled 1,560 respondents, the Sme daily wrote.

SLOVAK internet users are turning away from newspapers for their job searches, and they are looking for new jobs even when they already have one.

These are some outcomes of surveys on the habits and preferences of the Slovak internet community conducted by TNS SK and Mr. Think for the LMC company in August. The surveys polled 1,560 respondents, the Sme daily wrote.

The surveys showed that a relatively large portion of internet users - almost 20 percent - changed their jobs in the last year. People up to 29 years of age found a new job the most often.

A bigger portion of respondents, almost 35 percent, is considering a job change within one year.

Many Slovaks are willing to consider leaving Slovakia to get a job in the Czech Republic. Under certain circumstances, 64 percent of the survey respondents would leave Slovakia for the Czech Republic. That towers above the 12 percent willing to leave the country to work in Hungary.

Nearly 40 percent of the respondents would leave Slovakia to get a job in Austria.

Two-thirds of internet users eager to get new information from the labour market go to job search websites.

They are less inclined to visit the websites of companies (19 percent) or HR agencies (16 percent).

LMC, a company that mediates online job offers, recently launched a new job website in Slovakia. It also runs an e-recruitment website in the neighbouring Czech Republic, Jobs.cz.
