Research by has shown a major global shift in the way people are trying to "find work" using online search engines. In 2011 Ireland held the 2nd highest ranked country under the Google search "find work," UK was 5th, Greece 8th and USA came 9th. However, 2012 trends indicate that more people are now searching for this term in other countries such as the UK and Australia.

Since the start of 2012 alone, South Africa and Ireland have been replaced from position 1 and 2 by Australia and the UK, who both moved up 2 places...Since January 2012 Australia has been the highest-ranking country with the most searches for the exact term "Find Work."

A similar trend is emerging with city specific searches. The upmarket area of Kensington in London recorded the most searches in 2011, followed by Brisbane and then Dublin. Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, the USA had Los Angeles and Chicago - Manila in the Philippines, London and Singapore completed the top "find work" cities of 2011.

However, a dramatic shift happened towards the end of 2011 and at the beginning of 2012 meaning Dublin and Manila have dropped out of the top 10 - replaced by Toronto in Canada and New York...Where mobile people in regions that have suffered the hardest during the current decline used the internet to try and "find work" by typing in this exact search term during the years up to 2011. Towards the end of 2011 and start of 2012, as people continue to move towards traditional migration centers such as the USA, America, Australia and London in the UK, it's no surprise to see these regions dominating the 'find work' search online.

There is no doubt that this trend will be reflected in local benefit claims, remittances and registered numbers of unemployed in 2012. It also reflects how people are trying to find work using every possible means. Year on year the internet has becomes a more valuable work finding resource.
