Rumors, innuendo, and (yes) job board news

So much for the doldrums of summer. You’d think that record heat, drought, and the impending Olympics would result in a boring news slump for the job board world.

You’d be wrong.

Let’s see what’s heating up the tubes of the internet, shall we?

Money money money – what was most popular on Job Board Doctor in 2011

Once a week (more or less), I sit down and write about the job board and online recruiting industry. Some of these posts are more popular than others (and honestly, some are complete duds). As it’s almost the end of the year, I though you might find it interesting to see which posts my readers turned to most often in 2011. So, in reverse order, here are the most-read posts of 2011:…

Are big job destination sites a thing of the past?

Back in the day – say, 3 or 4 years ago – if you were looking for a job, you typically visited a big job board like Monster, an aggregator like Indeed, a few niche sites, and a fewcompany sites. The large ‘destination’ sites like Monster did everything in their power to draw Mr. Job Seeker to their URL – Superbowl ads, wacky web promos, and even cartoon figures. Aggregator sites flew under the radar – they depended on search…

What's next for job boards? Devolution? Revolution? Evolution?

“You say you want a revolution, well, you know, we’re all doing what we can.” – The Beatles

“We’re pinheads all, jocko homo.” -DEVO

 

These lyrics really get to the two extremes of what recruiters, employers, and job seekers think might happen with job boards. On the one hand, there are those who think job boards are on the way out, ‘devolving’ into lowest common denominator sites that carry fake jobs and offer little…

Indeed, customer service, and job boards: a cautionary tale

Imagine that you’re one of the thousands of job boards thatprovided Indeed with job postings from its inception. Imagine that in addition to providing those jobs (which turned Indeed into the most visited job site on the web), you also spent money promoting those same jobs – thus providing Indeed with a lucrative source of income. Imagine that, in return, Indeed provided your job board with a stream of inbound referrals (both organic and…

The danger of ‘big’ – it sometimes goes away

One of the first business lessons I learned many years ago was that it is often better to havemany smaller customers than fewer large ones. At the time, I was learning the ropes from a battle-hardened magazine publisher. He said (in reference to my naive comment that I would rather have Microsoft as an advertiser than a dozen smaller ones), “Where are you when your big customer decides to ‘shift focus’? Your loss will be 100% of income, rather than 15% or 20%. How long does…

Indeed: the elephant in the room – or just the same old friendly puppy?

Go to any animal shelter and you will usually see pets that simply got too big for their owners – hulking St. Bernards, twelve-foot pythons, walking catfish, and so on. It’s easy in hindsight to blame the owners. But the owners weren’t thinking about how big the animal would one day become; they were focused on how much they wanted it.

Since roughly 2005, job boards have lived with aggregators such as …

The future of job boards...

Maybe I am missing something, so allow me to pose this question to fellow job board owners and our aggregator friends as well:



Major players in vertical job search engines, Indeed.com and SimplyHired.com and others make it simple for our paying clients (employers & recruiters who purchase job posts on our boards) to feed and promote (PPC) their job openings directly to their respective search engines.



Other products, including Hound & Linkup (& more?) perform… Continue

Joblighted: as web 2.0 as it gets

I've seen web 2.0 job boards before, but this one is the geekiest of the geek. Joblighted is an "aggregator" which combs all the tech blog job boads like Crunchbase and 37signals. Its sports an interactive map as the centerpiece of its design, oh yes, and they twitter among other cool details.



Reminds me of that Neil Diamond song..."Turn on your heart (job) light, let it shine wherever you… Continue
