US job-hunting sites have had a surge in traffic, according to internet audience measurement service Nielsen NetRatings.
The reason for the increase is believed to be a sniff of economic recovery, according to Kim Pillon, internet analyst at NetRatings. Pillon added that employees who had stayed at their companies to ride out the storm were now looking to escape.
Figures for April show that traffic to the USA Today Careers Network grew 45 per cent to 508,000 visitors, while recruitment site Monster.com jumped 33 per cent in traffic to 9.9 million visitors.
Job.com posted a 29 per cent gain in traffic, with 817,000 visitors.
Headhunter.net and Salary.com also saw respective increases of 108 and 96 per cent, NetRatings said.
