Hello Folk,

I am in urgent need (I have two days for this) for an answer to this
question. I have read long time ago that the proportion of user who
visit job boards is
significantly greater than that of those who registered with those job

Can some body give me some references on studies confirming or infirming this?

<A Nielsen//NetRatings MegaPanel survey found that out of more than
1,000 job seekers and recruiters, 89 percent registered on
(See Table 2). CareerBuilder and Yahoo! HotJobs posted a registration
rate of 47 percent and 43 percent, respectively.

This report shows that corporate job boards have an abandonment rate
of 90% for job applications if the application process is not kept
simple. has achieved an 80% conversion rate of visitors
registering on the site.
Source: Jadu achieved a 23% increase in conversion rates by
implementing changes to its site.

I also found site stats for job boards that give details of the number
of unique visitors in and the number of registrations..

167 million visits
842,000 active user accounts.
May 2000
3.9 million unique visitors
2 million registrations in 4 months ? an average of 50,000 per month

Executives on the
Unique visitors per month ? 78,145
Registrations per month ? 2700
Unique visitors per month ? 118,197
Registrations per month ? 4,000
Average number of visitor per day 19904
Average number of registrations per day 37.97

Rate of visiting
More than a third of respondents (37%) visited employment sites more
that 3 times per week, while over half (57%) visited these sites more
than twice a week.

Almost half of respondents (45%) visited five or more employment
sites, while 41% visited 2 to 5 sites.

One-third of respondents spent 6 to 10 minutes on each of the
employment sites they visited while another one-third spent 21 minutes
or more. Only 8% spent 1 to 5 minutes at these sites.

Almost two-thirds (64%) prefer niche sites, while 24% prefer general
purpose employment sites (i.e., those that post jobs in all or most
professions, crafts and trades).
