What problem does your job board solve?

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…

Job boards must evolve or die

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,…

Social media, recruiting, and job boards: which way are we going?

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:

  • Company attempts to outlaw…

Will job matching ever take off?

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…

Building and using job boards are two different things

I’m building a marimba. I’ve been a musician for years (although not a marimba player) but have never – until now – built an instrument. Believe me, building is different from playing. It helps to be a musician if you are creating an instrument – but the mindset is quite different. You’re worried about the ‘how’ – i.e., how high does that key need to be above the resonator to amplify without…

Everyone writes about job boards – well, a lot of people do

Technology, innovation, and procrastination

When you’re in the midst of working, it’s hard to stop. The work can be both addictive and rote – a deadly combination if what you really need is an hour or two of quiet contemplation. Thus, the three words in the title above can often work at cross-purposes, even though each has its place.

Specifically: technology is not necessarily the same as innovation. Let’s say that your job board is popular and well liked…

Can you really get something for nothing....

We have recently decided to start charging a small monthly fee of $5 at Job Board Reviews for

advertising job sites in our directory. The reasoning behind this is to

help cut some of our overheard and be able to keep the site up and

running with quality content. We also wanted to incorporate a small fee

to help determine who is serious about their job sites.

We have found that people and job boards that aren't… Continue

Disappearing Job Boards

This is a re-post from our Blog at

We are doing our annual overhaul on Job Board Reviews and each year I am surprised over the amount of new sites added and sites that have fallen off the map. Over the last 11 years, I have watched so many new job boards pop up. In fact, that is the reason I started to help job seekers and… Continue
