The internet has changed the job market

Thanks to emerging technology, companies are able to select from a wider array of candidates than before, and complete the process for less money.

In a recent interview with the Rockford Register Star, Careers Etc. president and CEO Steve Haight said that many companies used to spend more time and funds on the process. However, companies are now able to shift to a fully online process, which can be frustrating for those looking for a job. 

"They’re thinning the herd," said Haight, head of the Rockford nonprofit employment training firm, in an interview with the source. "It lightens the workload for the company to the detriment of the job seeker. When you apply that way, there’s no way to know if you’re even getting through."

The growth of online technology has also led to new positions opening up as well. The recent Global Online Employment report found that during the second quarter there  had been a 35 percent jump in the number of online jobs compared to the same time last year.
