Job sites have become by far the most used source for finding a job abroad, in fact jobseekers using national and international job boards are the only categories that have increased over the last 5 years. A large influence on this growth is the huge numbers of jobseekers in India using these job sites to find international roles.


At the same time, there has been a startling decline in the number of people using search engines and social media as a way of finding international jobs. A substantial driver here could be the very low figures seen for these two areas within China, where Google is largely banned and where international social media networks have had little impact.
