People use various forms to search for their employability:
- Ads on work/personnel portals or social networks
- Search jobs and vacancies at the company website
- Search jobs through friends - on the recommendation
- Search jobs on specialized community sites and discussion forums
Organizations search virtually the same resources to recruit workers. Generally, the more skilled positions, the more personal and sophisticated forms are used. On the contrary, the more the position has lower qualifications - e.g. blue-collar workers, the less sophisticated and more mass means are used (e.g. employment offices).
