What happens when you ask 1,276 job seekers how they really look for work? You get some pretty interesting answers.Continue

I've almost recovered from the IAEWS fall congress - but in about 4 weeks I will be attending the JobG8 Europe Job Board Summit in London (Dec. 4-5). Actually, 'attending' isn't quite right - I will be presenting some very interesting…Continue
Remember 1999? For those of us in online recruiting, it was the year ran an ad during the Superbowl. Overnight the job board went from sort-of well-known to very well known. Part of it was a memorable…Continue

Sometimes, a format change is a good thing. At least that’s my opinion after having spent the last couple of days at the IAEWS 2013 Fall Congress.
Although the IAEWS conference has always been a good source of information and networking, in past years it had also begun to feel a bit ‘overstructured’. Single day conferences are tough – organizers are trying to pack…Continue

I’ve talked before about how job boards are evolving to meet the changing needs of both employers and candidates. I’ve also talked about how some boards are simply …Continue

If you look at any survey of employers that I've done over the past several years, you'll find that the number one issue for employers is quality of candidates. Now, 'quality' is one of those wonderfully fuzzy terms that can mean just about anything to anyone, but in general, when employers talk about quality candidates, they're talking about candidates that meet…Continue

Many years ago, I embarked on my first sales job. I wasn't even wet behind the ear - I was clueless. But...I knew how to read, and I knew that I didn't know anything about sales. So I picked up a half-dozen books on the subject and set to educating myself.
One thing the writers seemed to agree on was the concept of qualifying the customer - determining what their needs were, and if your company could meet them. For a…Continue

Conferences can be a mixed bag. Sometimes you go and are dazzled by the information, presentations, and people – and other times, you find yourself wondering what else there is to do in town.
I’ve been to several IAEWS conferences – and I can honestly say that, while they don’t always blow me away, they always leave me with useful contacts and information. Perhaps it’s…Continue

In my recent survey of readers, several asked for more information about what I actually do (other than write these blog posts, I suppose). I do cover a bit of this on the…Continue

One of the most popular posts I've written is about generating revenue. So my readers are interested in making money - go figure! A smart blogger would have immediately written more posts about revenue (and I did write …Continue

The ‘traditional’ job board is evolving – but as science tells us, every instance of evolution isn’t always ‘successful’. There have been plenty of dead ends in nature. Same in the job board world – often because the sites in question failed to adapt.

For a number of years, the CareerXroads Source of Hire study has identified referrals, career sites, and job boards as the #1, #2, and #3 sources of external hires, respectively. Much of the traffic that career sites receive comes directly from job postings on job boards, of course – a relationship that companies have…Continue

I’ll sum up the JobG8 Job Board Summit in a single phrase: ‘big picture’. Sure, there were some nuts and bolts sessions and plenty of useful advice (some of which I will pass along), but Kevin Wheeler really set the tone with his opening session on the future of work. So let me give you my Cliff Notes on the meeting:

I recently wrote a post for HR Examiner that looked at the profusion of choice for recruiters these days – how they are presented with lots of tools to do their jobs. It got me thinking about how things are similar for job boards. Never before has the industry been presented with …Continue

Last week Jakub Zavrel posted a fascinating piece on ERE.net asking the eternal question: Are Job Boards Still Relevant for the Future of Recruiting? I strongly encourage you to read it (and definitely check out the comments – Steven Rothberg has some pertinent thoughts, too!).
In a nutshell, Zavrel…Continue

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

I got caught up in surveys and what not (What? You haven’t seen the2013 Job Board Trends survey?) and fell a bit behind on the news. So here is the latest and greatest in the far-flung world of online recruiting:…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
