Vital stats recruitment - related keywords

[Online search volumes for recruitment-related keywords have seen plenty of change in recent months, according to analysis of recent results from Miva's UK network.

With the majority of consumers now back from their summer holidays, it would appear that many are now focusing on their careers, and possible job changes, with nearly all the keywords in the recruitment-related top 10 seeing marked increases in search volumes since last month.

January is traditionally one of the busiest periods in the recruitment calendar yet search volumes for many of the keywords in the top 10 are now on a par with the beginning of the year.

The highest increase in search volumes is for "London jobs", suggesting that the capital continues to be a significant draw for jobseekers. The number of consumers looking to work from home has also shown a marked increase with search volumes on the network - which consists of hundreds of websites ranging from major online publishers to more niche, sector specific sites - for "work from home" up by more than 50% on last month.

Search volumes for "graduate jobs" have dipped slightly over recent months.

This suggests that many of the graduates who received their degree results earlier in the summer may have now secured their first step on the career ladder.

While not featuring in the top 10, search volumes for "jobs abroad" are now at their highest level since the beginning of the year, highlighting a continued desire for consumers to explore new lives overseas.

The analysis will also make interesting reading for the Government. While not featuring in the top 10, search volumes for both "teaching jobs" and "healthcare jobs" have both seen marked increases over recent months.
