Job Site Web Traffic Explodes

I’m not sure what’s behind this phenomenon – but traffic on job websites has exploded this year. Some stats from Experian Marketing Services:

* Job site traffic is at a record high
* Job site traffic is up 23% year over year
* Jobsites received more than 739M total US visits in Feb 2013.
* Total visits to job sites in 2013 are up 29% year over year
* and combined for nearly 26% of all Job site visits in February 2013


        Top Job Searching Sites in February:

1.      LinkedIn (14% of all job site visits)

2.      Indeed (11% of all job site visits)

3.      Career Builder (5.50% of all job site visits)

4.      Beyond (3.15% of all job site visits)

5.      Monster (2.49% of all job site visits)

Is this people who’ve given up coming back to life? Or people who are feeling a bit safer in their career now looking to see if they can actually do better elsewhere?
