Everyone has problems. Some are big, some are small, but at any given moment, a particular problem can seem overwhelming and incapable of being solved.
If your site can solve someone’s problem, you become a lifesaver in their eyes. This no doubt seems incredibly obvious – but in the midst of day-to-day business, this ‘obvious’ statement can get lost.
Ask yourself: What problem does your job board… Continue

NORAS is a survey carried out and owned by Enhanced Media in the UK- they have been in touch to sell their services to me recently.
Has anyone got any experience they can share about their surveys - have they proven to be a valuable sales tool, or has it been valuable in any other way? Are there any downsides, like the use of the data they collect about your job board, being made availalbe to others?
I look forward to hearing your views.

I've been creating and running job boards since 1999. Here's a few tips for you newbies...
1. If you own multiple job boards link to them all in your footer. Pursue the power of a network.

Over a year ago, I wrote about the changes in the job board world. I also promised myself I wouldn’t write about job boards ‘dying’ for at least a year. Well, time’s up!
Are some job boards dying? Well, of course they are. All industries have some companies that are dying – and some that are growing. So,… Continue

The fall congress alongside the ERE event are my two favorite events of the year. Being able to talk shop with fellow job boarders is something that I always look forward to. The hotel in Florida is awesome (right on the beach) and the drinks will flow. If you have never been to IAEWS I encourage you to go.
Here are the details courtesy of IAEWS...…

If you follow my Twitter stream, you no doubt noticed I spent last week at #truManchester. It was a great experience – I listened to many recruiters and HR pros talk about how they use social media in their
recruiting (or hope to), and what they think about job boards. (I also
learned that the British have switches on their power outlets, are
extremely hospitable, and don’t open their pubs until noon).
A few observations:

Ok job boarders, lets do a quick poll on how long it took you to get your first paid job posting
List the name of your site, date launched and date of first order. Add it via the comments below.
This is a question I hear a lot in my consulting biz...lets hear some answers.

Job matching is the AI of the job board world.
It’s like this: for decades AI has been held out to computer geeks and normal folks alike as something that was ‘just around the corner’. Even the definition of AI has changed – sure, Big Blue could beat a chess master but that wasn’t really intelligence, right? Since 1950, the Turing test has been the gold standard for AI… Continue
