Does social media eliminate the need for job boards?
For the past 15 years, job boards
have been a standard part of the job seeker and employer ‘tool kit’. And why not?: job boards have proved to be an efficient way for job seekers to locate hiring companies, apply for jobs, and get a resume in front of potential employers.
But now the onset of… Continue

There are thousands of job sites out there. If you spend much time looking at them, like I do, you quickly realize that many lack ‘brand identity’.
In other words, they’re forgettable.
Try it yourself. Go to JobBoardReviews
or Google “your favorite industry + jobs” and see what you find. I’m betting that (after you get past the aggregator and Big 3 listings) you’ll discover niche sites that look and feel, well,… Continue

I'm still searching for anyone who can shed light on the "next generation of resume management software."
An article written many, many months back [don't remember by whom, and unfortunately, can't find] outlined how resume parsing software uses a points system to analyze and grade resumes. A jobseeker holding a bachelor's degree or a certain amount of work experience for example would be given points. Those points were then calculated and the software would present the best… Continue

Just wondering about country domains and some of the benefits for acquiring them. For global, industry-related, niche job boards is it important to acquire country domains?
If you have 5-10 country domains does it make sense to re-direct them to the .com
? What effect does this have? (Assuming the job-board is operating in English only)
Or, should new pages be built for each country? and perhaps with new languages?
I would think… Continue

The era of the two-job employee (let us call him “Sam”) has emerged as a result of the global recession. Sam is a new breed who developed entrepreneurial survival skills to battle the recession, and learned how find and keep a second job.
You, the employer, do not need to be too alarmed if Sam takes on a second job as a baker, or a mechanic, because this would require Sam to be physically present at that location. However the situation is more complicated if Sam takes on a second job… Continue

When looking for a new job, it can be difficult to connect directly to potential employers and get them interested in you. In fact, it isn’t easy to make a non-virtual connection with anyone anymore. I get more invitations to birthday parties through Facebook than I do by email or phone, and work is just as technology oriented as my home-life.
