job board vs. job search and back-fill

I run a niche "accounting job board" with my own job posting clients that post their jobs on our job board which is hosted by a 3rd party. I do not have regular or any control over the search results page nor do I earn revenue on the Indeed back-fill. Those directly posted jobs are then automatically cross posted to our industry partner sites plus all the major job search engines. Client gets great value posting a job on our site.

I… Continue

Is social recruiting a symptom – or a solution?

Ready or not, here comes mobile

It’s been estimated that as much as 40% of the current desktop-based recruitment searching will migrate mobile devices by 2014. I suspect the change may occur even more…

Too much friction in your job board? Not enough?

In my experience, I’ve found that programmers often expect people to act linearly – going from point A to point B, logically and inexorably marching forward, until they reach their goal.

People don’t usually act that way. They use nutty search terms. They randomly click on ads. They open new browser windows and forget what they were originally looking for. They fail to notice

some buttons and features, yet become fixated on…

Results of the Job Board Future survey are here!

In August, I began gathering data from job seekers, HR professionals, recruiters, and job board employees and operators on the future of job boards and the methods for finding jobs and candidates. Now, 275 responses later, we have some results.

Each survey respondent identified him or herself as a job seeker, a HR or recruiting professional, or a job board employee or operator. Based on their response to that question, they then answered a series of questions specific to…

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…
