Abstract

A study was designed to compare the number of jobs found as well as the perceptions toward job search tools when employing internet‐based tools versus traditional tools (e.g., print media). Sixty participants were randomly assigned to one of five search tools (i.e., Monster.com, Hotjobs.com, General Internet, Open, and Print Media Searches) and instructed to search for job openings in the accounting industry. Results indicated that the number of jobs found were clearly greater in the internet‐based conditions than in the traditional search condition. Impressions of the job search method were positively related to the perceived quality of information gathered and perceptions of job search success.
