The Internet has changed the way we do almost everything, and job hunting is no exception. The growth of online job boards and networking sites means many more opportunities for candidates - but also many more challenges in concealing a job search from colleagues. What do Americans think about privacy when searching for a job? How does this affect your ability as a recruiter to connect with the right candidate?

A recent study by Wakefield Research for TheLadders has some interesting answers.

And Mashable agreed. is the largest independent online news site dedicated to covering digital culture, social media and technology. With more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, Mashable has one of the most engaged online news communities. They decided to use the study and info-graphic from TheLadders in their online article "The Job Search and Confidentiality" by Lauren Drell.
