    Abstract

    In this research, applicants' perceived expectations, limitations and service improvements concerning two Dutch e-Recruiting services (monsterboard.nl and vacant.nl) are investigated. Data from interviews and videotapes have been analysed. The main perceived limitation in regard to e-Recruiting sites is the lack of personal communication and contact. The majority of usability problems stem from layout issues (monsterboard.nl), search functionality (vacant.nl) and lack of information (both). Better search and matching functions and the inclusion of personal elements into e-Recruiting service offerings were the foremost desires of users.
