Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 24, 2003
Transformation Systems Inc. (TSI) announced today the release of the company's latest research report titled "The Transformation Systems Inc Survey of Online Recruitment Perceptions: Job Seekers Speak about Privacy, Trust, and Use of the Internet for Employment Pursuit".
The report presents the results of a 2003 survey of online job seekers conducted by TSI Vice President Dr. Rich Cober, and his long-time research collaborator, Dr. Doug Brown of The University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada).
The TSI study is based on survey data collected from 591 random online job seekers who participated in an online survey. The study represents one of the first efforts to directly access and report on online job seekers' views regarding online privacy, trust in online employment mechanisms, and use of the Internet for employment pursuit.
Job Seekers responses yielded several findings that should be noted by employers, online job board operators, and industry analysts including:
The survey results tell a provocative story and should serve as a wake up call for the rapidly expanding and dynamic online recruitment industry. Job seekers are increasingly sensitive to invasions of privacy, and their perceptions of online recruitment indicate that they may become more hesitant in actively using online application and selection tools unless organizations take more assertive actions to protect their privacy and subsequently increase trust in the integrity of the Internet as a recruitment source.
The study is an extension of the research program that Drs. Cober and Brown have been involved in for the past five years. At a time when online recruitment is proving to be one of the most successful business applications for the Internet, significant issues are emerging with regard to the perspectives of job seekers and their online job search needs. The findings in this report provide insight into the needs, desires, habits, and concerns of today's sophisticated job seekers.
