With the UK unemployment figures recently announced at 2 million, and redundancies being announced almost on a daily basis, this new book is ideally timed to help job seekers use the Internet to search for their next job
Winchester, Hants (PRWeb UK) March 24, 2009
A new book 'How To Find A Job Using The Internet' has been published to help the UK's 2 million job seekers use the Internet to find a new job.
"With the UK unemployment figures recently announced at 2 million, and redundancies being announced almost on a daily basis, this new book is ideally timed to help job seekers use the Internet to search for their next job" commented Mike Taylor, author of the book. "For some people this could be the first time they have had to use the Internet to look for a job because job hunting on the Internet was not an option the last time they were looking" continued Taylor.
With over 1,000 job related web sites in the UK it can be difficult to find and choose the most relevant job sites. Even job seekers who have grown up with the Internet (such as new graduates or school and college leavers) may not have the knowledge to use the Internet effectively to search for a job.
With more competition for each job vacancy it is essential that job seekers follow as many options as possible when looking for a job. The Internet now carries jobs from companies, newspapers, recruitment agencies and the Job Centres, so anyone looking for a job without using the Internet could be severely disadvantaged.
Author, Mike Taylor added "The sooner people can get back into work after losing their job the better. I know from personal experience how important it is to be able to take control and take action yourself. Hopefully this concise, straightforward book, will give people (whatever their background) the information and confidence to use the Internet effectively to look for a job."
"In today's economic climate, many people are worried about the possible threat to their current job. Therefore, they may also feel the need to be on the look out for a new job, just in case they find themselves needing to search for one in the future."
Appreciating that the information will be useful to a wide range of job seekers, the publishers have made the book available as a printed book, an e-book (PDF) and also as an audio book (MP3). The e-book version contains interactive links to all the web sites mentioned in the book meaning that job seekers can visit specific web sites in real time as they read about them in the e-book. All three versions are available from http://www.OnlineJobHunting.co.uk
