Top professionals are turning to the net for career progression, says recruitment agency, Reed.

According to a survey published by the company, people in the AB demographic group are almost twice as likely to use the internet to search for a new job than the adult population as a whole - some 16 per cent compared to nine per cent respectively.

The survey also reveals that while 11 per cent of respondents in the C1 group would consider using the web when seeking new posts, only three per cent of those in the D and E groups felt the same.

Commenting on the findings, Richard Herring of Reed Computing Personnel says IT workers "pioneered" web-based job searching and believes they like the "anonymity and control" offered by the internet. Reed has recently revamped its own job search website, www.reed.co.uk.
