Reframe Your Perspective

By Amy Goble, Vice President HealthCareerCenter.com

80/20 Bootcamp: the Tactics of Successful Strategy Implementation

Fellow JobBoarders-



I have been thinking a lot lately about the difference between Strategy and Tactics in our businesses. I think many of us confuse these things which both deserve our time and attention. I decided to take a quick look online for some thoughts on the subject and found one of those "For Dummies" books that address it.



I felt like the chart…

Peer Poll Results: The Data Security Challenge

Our last Peer Poll asked, “Do you have insurance against litigation and/or claims caused by data breaches, malware attacks or phishing expeditions conducted against your customers.”



The number of respondents for the question was relatively low, but 75 percent of those who did respond said they did NOT have such insurance.



That low level of response and the finding, itself, are not surprising.  With all of the other things we have to worry about,…

Everything Matters

By Jeff Dickey-Chasins, Job Board Doctor



In the rush to get your job board up and running (or your latest rework, as it were), you may be tempted to cut corners. For example, perhaps you only have a couple of in-house folks test the site – not ‘real live’ job seekers and employers. Or maybe you ignore the weird bug in the registration process – which of course the tech…

Recruiting Technology Gets Us Lost

By Ane Ohm, CEO HarQen



I live five miles from the HarQen offices at 1830 N Hubbard Street in Milwaukee, WI. I have been driving there for ages. Yesterday I got lost coming to work and the implications for recruitment technology are huge.



Not long ago, I started using Waze (a wonderful social GPS app, http://www.waze.com) to find the fastest way to get to…

Leonardo Da Vinci’s Resume

By Gal Almog, Founder & Group President RealMatch



In my recent post, I suggested that the resume is an outdated artifact and that we should look for better ways to apply for jobs. My suggestion triggered some good discussion.



My VP of Products told me he read that Leonardo da Vinci created the first official resume in 1482. I assume he proposed his artistic skills to one of the Kings in his…

Niche Job Boards – Boom or Bust?

By Gal Almog, Founder & Group President RealMatch



I recently spoke with the manager of a job board that belongs to a large association. We were courting on them to join our job network and to use our job board platform.



They were in a specific professional niche and felt very confident that their niche job site was shielded from the dramatic changes that are happening in the recruitment advertising…

Your Employment Web Site Sucks!

By Ken LevinsonEnchanted Careers





Isn’t it amazing how one client will tell you that your employment web site is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and another client will tell you that your employment web site sucks?



I like to equate it to golf. Two golfers can use the same driver, one hits the ball 300 yards down the middle of the fairway, and another hits the ball 50 yards along…

Peer Poll Results: Bad Ads Are a Big Problem

The jury is still out on whether fraudulent ads are increasing, but there’s little doubt about whether the problem is still around.  Better than 91 percent of the respondents said that the prevalence of such ads was either increasing or about the same as in previous years.



Almost half (47.83 percent) said the rate of such ads was increasing.  That was the largest single response.  



However, almost as many (43.48 percent) said these ads were appearing at…

The owners of a well-established and profitable provider of internet based recruiting solutions and job-board listings are looking to sell their business. The Company can easily be relocated and key personnel are willing to remain (even working remotely) after a sale.



The Company sells job listing services to employers, and promotes job openings to job seekers via a national network of websites and services. The Company's primary website receives an average of about 260,000 unique…
