We slip out of Google 'work' search top 10

IRELAND has slipped from the top 10 of the 'find work' Google search category.

The UK and Australia have replaced Ireland in the online search.

In 2011 Ireland held the second highest ranked country under the Google search 'find work', the UK was fifth, Greece eighth and USA came ninth.

However, 2012 trends indicate that more people are now searching for this term in other countries such as the UK and Australia.

A dramatic shift happened towards the end of 2011 and at the beginning of 2012 meaning Dublin and Manila have dropped out of the top 10 -- replaced by Toronto and New York.
