John Mowbray presents research on social networks and job seeking at CoLIS9, Sweden
Centre for Social Informatics
PhD student John Mowbray
is delivering a paper entitled ‘The role of networking and social media tools during job search: an information behaviour perspective’ at Conceptions of Library and Information Science (CoLIS9)
in Sweden this afternoon. The paper
is based on work that John
has completed as part of his ESRC-funded doctoral study. John will present a critical analysis of the extant literature pertaining to the
networking behaviours of young job seekers, and propose a framework
derived from information behaviour theory as a basis for conducting
further research in this area.
Conceptions of Library and Information Science (CoLIS) is a series of
international conferences that provides a broad forum for the
exploration and exchange of ideas in the field of Library and
Information Science, Information Studies, and related disciplines.
