Comparing figures of jobs and job seekers on CareerJunction from January 2005 to January 2006 illustrates a tremendous growth in Online Recruitment. The number of advertised jobs increased from 13 060 in January 2005 to 20 982 in January 2006, while over that same period the amount of registered career seekers increased from 326 641 to 473 313.

There was also a rise in new career seekers completing their resumès on CareerJunction during each of these months.

According to Nielsen//NetRatings, CareerJunction is once again the market leader in Online Recruitment, with the amount of unique users and page impressions recorded in January 2006 at 242 680 and 10.8 million respectively. This reflects a rise in unique users and page impressions of 31% for CareerJunction from January 2005 to January 2006.

CareerJunction’s top two sectors for both advertised jobs and registered resumès was consistent for January 2005 and January 2006, with both being Information Technology followed closely by the Financial sector. However, the percentage difference between the top two sectors and the rest of the sectors changed quite substantially.
