The Internet has become an important tool for all human matters including e-recruitment. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the factors that affect on the attitude and intention to use the e-recruitment. A questionnaire was designed to examine applicant’s intention to use e-recruitment by obtaining their opinions; data were obtained from 356 job seekers who are e-recruitment actual users. The results revealed that enjoyment, usefulness and ease of use significantly correlate with their attitude while their attitude strongly correlates with their intention to use. Applicants’ demographic variance was tested and found that age, education and Internet experience have no statistically significant differences except for a few sections, while gender and occupation have statistically significant differences. The study recommended is to take the advantages of information technology and continuously update this application by improving the productivity, easy to work with and enjoyable experience for job seekers.
