CONCLUSION The potential of a well-evaluated corporate employment web site to influence application intentions is thus derived from its impact on organizational attractiveness. Apparently, a more favorable attitude toward the site does not necessarily imply that the company actually will be considered as a potential employer. Being attracted toward the organization seems to play a prominent role here, suggesting that other factors, such as corporate image, compensation, culture, and career development opportunities will be important as well.
