This article reports on the use of a large-scale,longitudinal survey of recruitment activity to investigate the usage and perceivedsuccess of both corporate and commercial web sites by employers. In addition, 20interviews with users and providers of online recruitment were conducted in orderto provide a deeper exploration of the factors that may affect the success of thesemethods.

INTRODUCTION
The Internet first emerged as a recruiting tool in the mid-1990s and washailed in the popular management press as the driver behind a ‘recruitingrevolution’ because of the benefits it could bring to recruiters (Boydell,2002). Indeed, some authors suggested that the Internet had ‘revolutionised theway that people look forwork’ (Birchfield, 2002) and brought ‘radical change tocorporate recruiting’ (Cappelli, 2001). There has been little empirical research toinvestigate whether these predictions have been realised, despite extensive use ofthe methods. We will examine the use of online recruitment and perceptions of itssuccess in comparison with other methods in the UK http://ukthesiss.com/dissertation_sample/by the year 2006 throughour longitudinal data set and interviews.

human capital – into the organisation’ (Barber, 1998: 841). The strategic significanceof recruitment is often reported in the literature (Boxall and Purcell, 2003), theemphasis being on the need to attract and retain high-quality people in order to gainHUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT JOURNAL, VOL 18 NO 3, 2008 257
