Calling all job boarders! Here are some *thinker* questions for you ...

I have 3 major questions:

1. Do you believe LinkedIn profiles will eventually replace resumes?

2. How are social networking, micro-blogging, and so on, currently affecting your board?

3. Are you planning for the overall impact job-search 2.0 technologies will likely have on job boards?

I’m working on a new article which will highlight select viewpoints of those within the job-search, hiring, and talent management realm. Your thoughts and insights would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a bunch.

Follow-up question: For those who collect resumes, do you see your sites transforming to integrate LinkedIn info from jobseekers ... or maybe, abandoning the collection of any job-search document?

1.) Eventually.. but, not exclusively LinkedIn.
2.) My service capitalizes on the practical applicability of social media for job search. (I do not fit the strict definition of "job board").
3.) My overall business model is designed to leverage the impact as referred to in the question.
Extra credit: I don't plan to integrate LI into my service. I prefer to have my service complement the user's LI profile by becoming part of the Web 2.0 Job Search strategy.

- I think there is still an issue of privacy or lack thereof with open resumes on Linkedin. But I am using it to promote We don't collect resumes
- Use blogs and forums to drive traffic to my job boards
- Our approach is mostly to provide a quick and direct access to jobs, via individual and niche domain names/address, so we have not thought of incorporating social networking or 2.0 stuff yet...
