One of my goals at Job Board Doctor is to provide resources for job boards. My first attempt was the listing of job board software(which has been updated many times!). I also hope that my blog posts serve this function – at least some of the time.
But I’ve also know that there are many other types…Continue

The results are in from the latest Job Board Trends and Online Recruiting surveys – and they’re interesting. This year 319 job boards, 79 HR and recruiting professionals, and 108 job seekers participated – that’s a lot of responses! It also took a while to gather up the data and put it into report form – but it is now available in the Research area of the…Continue

Job boards have become prisoners of their moniker. After all, a ‘job board’ is just an online bulletin board for ‘posting’ your electronic ‘job ad’, right?
Wrong. Job boards (and yes, I think I’m going to write a post pretty soon about alternative names!) began growing past that simple definition by 1999, if not before. Sure, they were places where employers could search candidate resumes (and if it was a niche board, then very…Continue

You’ve created a beautifully designed site, got some jobs posted, so now what? Getting job seekers to visit your site and ultimately apply for those jobs is something every career site struggles with. Everyone’s heard that social media and search engine optimization are huge, but what do you actually need to know to be successful?
Here are a few methods you can adopt to help increase traffic to your job site with concrete examples.

‘Frankenstorm’ is washing ashore, an election is in the offing – yet things keep happening in our industry, too. That’s good, I guess – I wouldn’t want anyone (especially myself)getting bored. So here is my round up of what’s happened over the past month and a half:…Continue

For those of you who attended the most recent IAEWS congress in Hollywood Florida – you may remember a conversation I led about how mobile is changing our business. A couple of things really resonated for me:
-Most of our members are not yet mobile optimized
-Most of our members do not have a mobile application
-Job seekers increasingly want information about jobs at their fingertips – many our members said 20% of all traffic (or…Continue

As noted in previous posts, I’ve been thinking lately about what makes a job board good – or not. Below are a few questions to that effect – and yes, some employment sites have these features, but most do not. Maybe there absent features you’ve wondered about?
Talk to job seekers about looking for jobs, and you get an earful. Talk to employers about finding candidates, and you get another earful. Both sides are looking for each other, and both sides have problems doing so.
Problems are almost always expressed in the negative: “No one ever responded to my application.” “The candidates sucked.” “The site is too expensive.” “I couldn’t understand how to use it.” And so on.
Observation #1: No employment site or service…Continue

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?

Last year, the IAEWS launched the first ever performance benchmark study for job boards worldwide. Over 100 job boards submitted performance data through an online survey. An independent market research firm collected and secured the data and issued a final report to each participant. A number of job boards also participated in a roundtable discussions about the results at the IAEWS conference in FL or the meeting sponsored by Jobg8.com in London. At both sessions, there was strong…Continue

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:…

It’s that time of the month – time to glance back and see if anything really happened in the past 4 weeks. Surprisingly enough, it did. Here’s what I noticed:

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…Continue
