Focusing just on the report's findings with respect to older workers, the following results were noted:
- Younger people were more likely to use multiple job search methods than older people.
- Job seekers aged 16-29 year and older job seekers aged 50-69 years were more likely than those in their thirties and forties to nominate visiting a jobcentre, job market or training and employment agency as their main method of job search.
- Social networks as a job-search method were used slightly more by younger job seekers (notably those aged 16-29 years) than by older job seekers.
- Around 87% per cent of jobseekers aged 25-29 and 84% of 30 to 34 year olds used the Internet to search for work, while only 75% of those aged 50-54 did so, 72% of those 55-59 years old, and 62% of those 60-64 years old.
