According to one recent report, the internet is quickly becoming a dominant force when it comes to hiring opportunities.

In the recently released Global Online Employment report, Elance revealed that demand for online positions was increasing at a faster rate than that of traditional jobs. The study found that during its second quarter there were almost 200,000 new employment opportunities in the field, 35 percent higher than the same time last year.

The head of the company said that part of the reason for the growth was due to the fact that people in the sector could work anywhere.

"The ease of working online — coupled with the ability to instantly connect with a highly specialized global talent pool — is driving massive adoption of online work," said Fabio Rosati, CEO of Elance. "For the first time, demand for technical talent is being matched by equally strong demand for creative talent."

Numerous firms are using online tools to help sort through applications of job seekers. Forbes reports that social media management company HootSuite was using The Resumator to better organize the process.
