New Job Search Statistics

As commented by the Career Management Alliance, here are some interesting recent statistics on job search trends:

College Grads find job search success at college career centers, according to a new study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). NACE’s 2007 Graduating Student Survey found that:

* 52% of students who reported securing full-time jobs had applied for a job through a campus career center-sponsored career fair.

* 41% had posted their resumes through their campus career center’s website.

The study also found that the most effective methods weren’t the most popular among students:

* 71% of the 12,000+ students applied for a job by sending their resumes directly to an employer’s website.

* 47% of students mailed a resume directly to the employer.

* 44% applied at a career center-sponsored job fair.

* 34% posted a resume through a career center website.
