New Report Examines Online Recruiting

iLogos Corp., an Internet research and consulting firm specialized in electronic recruiting, has published a new report on the state of Internet recruiting in Canada.

Achieving Results with Internet Recruiting examines the growing "e-cruiting" phenomenon in Canada and its rapid transformation of Canada's recruiting industry.

According to iLogos, searching the Internet for work is now the second most popular method of finding a job, next to the newspaper. Many companies are receiving more than half their resumes online and some are recruiting online exclusively.

"Choosing to recruit without the Internet makes about as much sense as going out fishing but opting to leave your fishing rod at home," said Yves Lermusiaux, iLogos Chief of Research.

Achieving Results With Internet Recruiting presents current facts and figures related to Internet recruitment in Canada.

iLogos surveyed more than 50 Canadian companies active with electronic recruiting to compile a snapshot of the market, then analyzed the information to provide recruiters with the tools and techniques necessary to lead in the wired world.

The report, available for US$270 from the iLogos Web site, explores best practices for Internet recruiting, including how to optimize the use of a corporate Web site, and how to take advantage of online job boards, banner advertising and newsgroups.
